Control Room

The control room environment is very important in providing the perfect conditions for engineering, recording, mixing and mastering.

Sound Gallery have designed and utilised a combination of Limp Mass traps and absorber panels along with corner traps to attenuate a range of frequencies – the aim is to create an almost flat response curve to enable the ‘Truest’ audio signal.
