Sweetwater Music has constructed a new facility that incorporates both a unique presentation theatre as well as world class recording studios designed by Russ Berger. From the outset, these spaces were designed to work in concert with one another. The natural acoustics of the theatre are extremely neutral, and allow for both high Definition media presentations with 5.1 Dolby surround sound, as well as high energy sound reinforcement. The E-coustic Systems installation transforms the acoustic of the space – providing optimum conditions for acoustic music. Dedicated acoustics processing is assigned to the stage – allowing conditions to be independently adjusted for the musicians. The facility layout allows the concert grand piano to be easily moved between the large studio and the theatre. Tie lines and high definition video cameras and monitors throughout the facility allow these rooms to be linked, providing an unprecedented array of presentation, performance and recording scenarios.
