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

Just been to the ever inspiring @seagullspaint – ever since building the studio with acoustic drywall that has a purple shade I’ve wanted to paint the room purple with grey trim. Also, Prince. 💜 #studiobuild #mastering #masteringengineer #masteringstudio #masteringaudio #recordingstudio #musicstudio #music #sound #audio #musician #musicproducer #musicproduction #leeds #decorating #paint #recycled #socialenterprise #seagulls #prince #declaredsound (at Seagulls Paint)

Earthing results, nice clean electrics on all the new radials for the studio, designed for no cable crossovers that can create annoying electrical harmonics in the recording frequencies. #studiobuild #soundproofing #acoustics #wiring #mastering #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #recordingstudio #musicstudio #musicproducer #musicproduction #musician #music #sound #audio #leeds #earthing #declaredsound (at Declared Sound)
