Russ Berger, owner of the acoustical and architectural design firmRuss Berger Design Group (RBDG), recently paid a visit to the Atlantachapter of the AES to deliver a lecture on a key issue for studioowners. Forty-two audio professionals packed into Studio 9000 atPatchWerk Recordings, an RBDG-designed facility in Atlanta, to hearBerger address the topic “Surround Challenges in AcousticallySmall Spaces, or (fortunately) No One Ever Dies From BadSound.”

“With the proliferation of very advanced, powerful andextremely cost-effective computer-based editing and recording systems,many studios are thriving in smaller spaces,” says Berger.“The world of SACD, DVD-Audio and Video DVD is demanding surroundsound mixing, and we need to address this real-world industry trend tohelp solve the small studio’s acoustic challenges whenimplementing surround monitoring systems.”

In his lecture, Berger covered design philosophy points that connectthe room, monitors and listener as an inseparable system. Berger says,“The room is the interconnect between the equipment and thelistener. Room acoustics are the last link in the audio chain and mustbe addressed correctly as there is no substitute or work-around foracoustics.”
