New music and audio post facility, Charlotte, NC

We began construction of our new facility in September, 2008 and are now nearing completion. I only recently discovered this forum thread and thought there might be some interest in a blog I've been keeping since construction began.

Keep in mind, it's not really written for fellow gearslutz like ourselves, but more for friends, clients, potential clients, etc.

Blogger displays blog posts from most recent to least, which is backwards chronologically. I'd recommend clicking back to the earliest posts if you'd like to see the process from the beginning.

Here's the link:

I've enjoyed browsing threads about other facilities. This forum is a great resource!

Best,

For anyone interested, our project is nearing completion. I've updated our blog with shots of some finished rooms.

I've visited here often in the past few weeks, and have enjoyed watching other facilities unfold. I've commiserated at times, too!

Well, it's all done! We've been in our new digs for about a month. Our friend and photographer extraordinaire Graham Smith (Red Pepper Photography) took some beautiful shots of the finished facility. I just posted some of them on my final blog post.

Thanks to all who've dropped by over the past several months!

Doh!! I just realized that I failed to post any photos of what is probably the most beautiful room in the new facility!

I've corrected that oversight with a new post to my construction blog.

Thanks again to all who've dropped by. Feel free to share any comments here or on the blog.

Very nice! On your site you say "to give you a sense of scale..."

What are the actual dimensions of the live room? 24x18x12?

Actual hard dimensions are 20'9" x 26'3" x 16'. Curtain is approx. 18' at the angle of the large front-of-room bass traps. Suspended ceiling is at 14'.

BTW - I've been following the blog on Manifold. Wow! I'd love to take a day trip up 1-85 when it's finished, if you're giving tours.

And Trev hits the magic word...vibe.

We were keenly focused on building a place that feels classy and contemporary without being trendy. We're hearing adjectives like, "comfortable" and "organic". Clients, musicians and voice actors just seem to like the way the place feels. I'm really happy about that. At the end of the day, all of the technical gobbledygook will help you get the job done; but speaking for myself - I tend to feel more creative with the right vibe.

Thanks for all the generous feedback!
