Client Requirement: 

Kazbar Systems provided a full acoustic assessment of the new James Reynolds Recording Studio, including the design, specification & quotation for the space. In addition, we provided a complete installation including all acoustic panelling and mood lighting.

James Reynolds was first recommended to Kazbar Systems by producer/composer Matt Schwartz in 2005. James (who had previously shared studio space within East London’s Truman Brewery complex, with fellow dance music producers Soul Avengerz & Hoxton Whores) decided to venture out on his own. He invested in his own studio, located closer to his West London home.


Maximum Music Studio

James found a studio room to rent in Nicky Graham’s Maximum Music studio complex on Heathman’s Road. Maximum Music Studio is home to many studios and creative companies. Shortly after finding the studio complex, Mr. Reynolds started formulating his equipment list with advice and technical assistance from Kazbar Systems.
Move forward to 2014 and the James Reynolds Recording Studio has moved one studio along the corridor. This is a larger space, better suited for his Yamaha DM2000 Mixing Console and the comprehensive equipment list.

The previous occupier of the studio space had his studio orientation differently to how James wished to work. Because of this, the studio needed to be acoustically redesigned from the ground up. All acoustic panels needed to be taken out and replaced and a new acoustic ceiling installed to suit the new orientation.
We installed large panels behind James’s studio workstation, allowing enough space for his Neumann KH420 Studio Monitor Speakers. These had to be raised high enough to allow for optimal listening positioning for his Unity Audio Boulder Speakers too.

The new layout allowed for a sofa behind James’s workstation, this was considered when providing the acoustic specification for the studio.

Also, further behind the sofa was enough space for a second audio editing setup for James’s assistant.
