RA-The Book draws upon over 23 years of experience designing and building hundreds of successful studios of all genres, sizes and styles around the world and features projects selected from the built design output of Recording Architecture from 1987-2010.

This is not a theoretical guide but a detailed presentation of tried and tested techniques as applied to real, built projects - in many of the case studies, the actual drawings issued for construction are reproduced.
The examples illustrate not only what we think should be done but what was in fact physically (and successfully) implemented in a wide variety of situations - from small, private project studios to large, commercial land mark studios such as Lansdowne, Konk and CTS.

Examples range in scope from individual spaces and rooms to multi studio facilities and cover the two principal strands of recording and mixing:

MUSIC studios - recording (tracking), mixing and mastering (including cutting) - project to orchestral in scale - taken from the private, commercial and educational sectors.

POST PRODUCTION studios - voice over (dubbing), FX recording ("Foley"), film mix studios (dubbing theatres) - from small voice over studios for TV to large Dolby Premier Certified film mix theatres.

The Book forms an in depth guide for anyone with an interest in the design and building of recording studios :

Users - owners, sound and maintenance engineers, producers, composers and musicians The design team - architects, acousticians, building contractors and individual trades,
All in education - students and teachers of architecture, recording and music. Hundreds of photographs plus detailed plans and construction drawings - including comprehensive specifications of materials and techniques - show exactly how these environments were created.
