The Studio

Inside the studio

In a recording studio most of the attention is often turned towards the technology it’s equipped with. Oftentimes, many forget to consider the critical factor that truly makes a professional recording studio great: its acoustics. Clear Perceptions worked with British studio designer Patrick Bernsen of SoundDesign to build our Montréal studio from the ground up. The result: a very comfortable and great sounding 5.1 control-room and a completely neutral-sounding "dead" studio/ISO room. The control room can accommodate nine people and is equipped with a director’s desk with a mic for talkback and a phone-patch connection.
