Whether you are building a studio from the ground up or turning a space into the perfect audio environment, good studio design is essential for recording and producing top quality records.

The financial ramifications of a poorly planned and badly designed studio can be ruinous on your studios output, reputation and, ultimately, on its successfulness.

Using straight forward language and practical examples, Philip Newell covers the key principles to making a studio triumphant. He gives you the skills you need to avoid disaster, but create an efficient and effective acoustical environment to record and produce amazing audio.
