Happy family for critical listening! Tall and proud #Dunlavy up there rated as one of the very best speakers ever made, the incredible #Rogers #BBC studio speakers, through to #Tannoy #genelec #yamaha and even my first ever #gale hifi that I’ve had for over 20 years, which I’ve listened to every record I’ve ever owned on (and believe me I have a lot of records!) #mastering #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #monitors #speakers #listening #music #musicstudio #musicproduction #musicproducer #acoustics #leeds Leave a comment and I’ll get back to you if you’re in need of any mastering! 🙂 #livingthedream #declaredsound

I’ll be the first to admit this build has taken me a lot longer than anticipated, but I am so proud of this place already it’s unreal. Making the all important bass traps today, combination of high density foam, antivibration mats, fibreglass panels, saving myself a lot of money building them instead of buying them in! #acoustics #soundproofing #studiobuild #mastering #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #sound #music #audio #musician #musicproducer #musicproduction #leeds #declaredsound

Following on from my homemade bass traps… The result of a lot of research, patience, design, sourcing materials, construction and testing. I am lucky enough to own a pair of Dunlavy speakers, some of the best speakers ever made, and I wanted to be sure I get the most out of them. I didn’t trust companies making their own acoustic panels – amazing how many charge crazy money yet refuse to make technical details of frequency absorption available, so I developed and built my own. Measuring the frequency response of the room and carefully matching the acoustic materials to precise room locations in order to create a flat and balanced room that allows the incredible performance of Dunlavy’s waveform accuracy to shine. Inordinately proud of myself listening to the room change as I mounted these yesterday, millimetre perfect focus away from the room and right to where it matters – the speakers. #studiobuild #mastering #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #musicstudio #recordingstudio #music #musician #musicproducer #musicproduction #sound #audio #acoustics #soundproofing #acoustictreatment #vinyl #cassette #tape #digital #CD #analogue #dunlavy #speakers #leeds #declaredsound

Up in the eaves to build in the final rear wall insulation for the mastering room, above what will be the #chrononautz synth and drum machine room of paradise! #studiobuild #mastering #masteringengineer #masteringstudio #masteringaudio #music #synthesizer #drummachine #oak #acoustics #soundproofing #leeds #techno #dancemusic #guitars #rock #punk #metal #noise #hardcore #musician #musicproducer #musicproduction #declaredsound

Truly levelling up with the new studio build – just purchased an absolutely mint pair of Dunlavy which are up there with some of the very best speakers ever made, each standing 6ft tall ready to go into my fully acoustic treated custom built mastering suite #audiophile #mastering #masteringengineer #masteringstudio #dunlavy #passivemastering #music #musicstudio #sound #audio #leeds #acoustics #declaredsound

Will never tire of seeing the sun shine down the yard of the mill, even if big business gentrification cranes loom in the distance. Building my studio has taken longer than I expected but the results are already beyond my wildest dreams, and I’ve learned so much about joinery and acoustics I’m more ready for this than ever. #studiobuild #mastering #masteringengineer #masteringstudio #music #audio #sound #acoustics #leeds #diy #livingthedream #declaredsound
