The Mastering Room

The room at AP Mastering was constructed completely from scratch in an empty industrial space from blueprints designed with ultimate acoustic accuracy in mind – a perfect room for mastering.

More specifically, the studio is a room-in-room construction with floating floor. The room employs wood framing with steel meshed thick hand plastered internal walls. Of the visible internal walls, a high quality ecological adobe/earthen clay plaster was used, hand trowled without a darby creating a rough uneven rustic appearance which is beneficial to the sonic ambiance of the room.

The front walls were made using archaic lath and plaster construction utilising individually nailed solid mahogany lathing and clay plaster. This further improves the low frequency accuracy of the room by randomly scattering the wall density behind the speakers.

The ceiling is a non-parallel sloping expansion design all the way from front to rear. The room is fully insulated even below the floor and features silent ventilation, designer lighting and 5 windows for a pleasant natural daylight studio environment.
