Remote controlled switching gives the user a degree of flexibility in balancing musical instruments or voices and, of course, additional switch positions are possible or a continuously variable potentiometer may be fitted. The electret microphone As we have seen, only a low voltage DC supply is required to power the built-in amplifier of a condenser microphone. Yet there remains the practical disadvantage that, although virtually no current is drawn, a relatively high (60–120 V) DC bias voltage has also to be provided to polarize the plates.

Impact noise from footfall or other movement within the building must also be dealt with if it is not be transmitted through the structure and into the studio. A measure as simple as carpetting adjacent corridors or office floors etc can generally overcome the majority of such problems. Wherever possible, corridors adjacent to studios should not be used at critical times or their use should be strictly controlled. Main thoroughfares should not pass through studio areas. Sound insulation Having created a generally suitable environment for a studio, it is then up to the studio walls themselves to provide the final degree of insulation from the surrounding internal areas.

The inner walls are then built up off the isolated floor with minimal connection to the outer leaf. The ceiling is supported from the inner leaves alone, and so does not bridge onto the outer walls which would short-circuit the isolation and negate the whole effect. With such constructions particular care has to be taken with the connection of the various services into the studio. Again attention to detail is of tantamount importance if optimum performance is to be achieved. 4. e. 2 × 110) 50 340 mm brickwork (plastered both sides 12 mm) 53 450 mm brick/stone plastered 55 112 mm brick + 50 mm partition of one layer plasterboard and softboard per side 56 225 brick – 50 mm cavity – 225 brick 65 325 brick – 230 mm cavity – 225 brick (floated) 75 12 mm plasterboard on each side 50 mm stud frame 33 12 mm plasterboard on each side 50 mm stud frame with quilt in cavity 36 Two × 12 mm plasterboard on 50 mm studs with quilt in cavity 41 As above with 75 mm cavity 45 Three layers 12 mm plasterboard on separate timberframe with 225 mm air gap with quilt 49 Floors 21 mm + t & g boards or 19 mm chipboard 35 110 mm concrete and screed 42 21 mm + t & g boards or 19 mm chipboard with plasterboard below and 50 mm sand pugging 45 125 mm reinforced concrete and 150 mm screed 45 200 mm reinforced concrete and 50 mm screed 47 125 mm reinforced concrete and 50 mm screed on glass fibre or mineral wool quilt 50 21 mm + t & g boards or 19 mm chipboard in form of raft on min fibre quilt with plasterboard and 50 mm sand pugging 150 mm concrete on specialist floating raft 50 55–60 Windows 4 mm glass well sealed 23–25 6 mm glass well sealed Studio and Control Room Acoustics Today, the acoustic response of the control room is recognised as being as equally important, if not more important, than that of the studio itself.
