CONTROL ROOM

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.

Quality mixing helps achieve great mastering results and the experience and ears of a good Mix Engineer are invaluable.
