Headroom Digital Audio, a music and audio post facility based in New York City, has moved to the Flatiron district into 6,000 square feet of custom-designed space featuring three ProTools HD 5.1 surround sound studios.
According to Headroom president Jerry Plotkin, the new studio facility at 11 East 26th Street, is three times the size of the company’s old space in midtown. Headroom’s three studios are fully linked, each with digital video, huge LCD monitors and its own voiceover booth. Studios A and B and their Iso booths are visible to each other for larger live music recordings.
A private room for producers and clients, aka “the Chill Space,” includes a flat screen TV, wireless laptop, Zen fountain and a massage chair. “We’ve taken great care to put together what is not only a technologically advanced studio facility,” says Plotkin, ”but also a place that makes it easy and comfortable to work. We have created a uniquely client-friendly atmosphere that will help clients do their most effective, creative work.”
Janis Caswell of J.H. Caswell Design describes the look of the facility as “unlike any other studio in terms of high-end comfort and style.” She has combined an eclectic mix of modern and Tuscan palazzo, including special touches like an etched concrete floor and Venetian plaster highlights.
Headroom’s phone remains unchanged: 212/246-8400.
