Recording Studio


The MIAM recording studio is the most important facility of the MIAM Sound Engineering and Design (SED) studies. It is used for both commercial and academic recordings where the SED students get the chance to take part in real-world recording sessions of the music industry. The technical equipment of the studio is the highest standard of the industry, from microphones to preamps to converters to outboard units. The heart of the recording studio is a ProTools HD system, expanded with a huge amount of additional DSP horsepower (HD core plus five HD Process cards). This allows for up to 128 tracks of pristine digital audio and sample rates up to 192 kHz. The large 34 m2 control room of the studio is designed to provide a spacious, efficient, extremely accurate monitoring and working environment. It features multiple monitoring systems. The live room provides with its 78.5 m2 area and 6m high ceilings a warm open sound which is ideal for all acoustic ensembles up to classical symphonies and drum recordings. The main live room is supplemented by two isolation booths: one traditional vocal booth and one larger chamber with very comfortable moods. The 9-foot Hamburg Steinway Model D concert grand piano of the studio provides a very unique sound that makes decent classical and jazz recordings possible.
