Scoring composer Harry Gregson-Williams (Shrek and Shrek 2, Team America: World Police, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason) has completed his new five-room, L.A.-based complex, Wavecrest Studios, with the help of acoustician Bruce Maddocks, owner/chief engineer of Cups ‘N Strings Studios; Gregson-Williams formerly occupied space at Hans Zimmer's Media Ventures. Architectural design of the new studios was done by Clover Lee.

Working on the acoustical design elements, Maddocks first made a study of the space, which involved free-field microphone measurements and a combination of impulse testing, RTA real-time analysis and RT60 reverberant time analysis. He then designed a variety of acoustical treatments that included RPG midrange Omniffusors and a combination of custom Helmholtz mid-bass absorbers and low-frequency membrane absorbers. In the performance space, Maddocks treated the live reverberant field with corner-mounted polycylindrical diffusors and cloud absorbers for optimum decay time and control of standing waves and reflections.
