Dark Pine Studio Build
« on: November 04, 2009, 07:44:58 am »

Dark Pine Studios, is a new 1360 sq ft state of the art facility that is quickly approaching completion. We anticipate an un-official opening date of December 2009.

We broke ground officially just before Labor Day in Sept 2007.

The studio started with a 1200 sq ft shell of 2x8 studs on concrete block, with a gravel floor.

Here's the floor plan;

I'll post up some of the key images, but if you would like more info, please check the blog at: http://www.dmmobile.com

That pretty well takes everything up to framing...

One thing I'd note is that there's probably close to 30 cu yards of sand under all of the concrete pads... all of it tamped and each pad is completely independent for each room.

That's pretty much the framing..... Next up.... insulation.

Thank you gents!

Yeah... been a pretty brutal uphill battle... yeeeesh....

Almost done with the acoustic treatment of the control room walls!

In the process of putting everything up, I had left one last section of furring and 703 uncovered. I thought it pretty well summed up the overall work of what's been involved in getting the room done:

Hey  Smile

Looks like a cool Project.
Are all the Slats calculated, at the specific location?.

I´m sure the room will sound great when finished.
But for my personal optical likes,there is a litle too much wood.


Best wishes for your Studio  Smile
cheers

She's been a real beast to pull out of the ground... oof!

Yes, the slats are meticulously set at specific widths... I have a tolerance of no more than 1/4" across an entire wall face.

All the rooms have seriously good acoustic properties.

The RT-60's and freq responses haven't been measured at this point, but everyone who's been in the shop has been impressed with how well the rooms sound.

The RT-60 of the tracking room is somewhere between 250 and less than 500mS. The control room is well under 100mS. The hallway is a tad longer than 500mS and the bathroom is a bit over 1500mS. (Can you say chamber? Smile )

The only room I'm really concerned with is the iso booth. I just hope I've got enough bass trapping to keep the bass somewhat in check.

The sweet spot in the control room is about 3 feet deep and almost 4 feet wide. Of course that will change a bit when we get the console desk and the producer's desk in there, but I don't see any reason that it should get any smaller, unless I move the monitors towards the center of the room.
