New Sound Recording Tech studios open
Tuesday, January 23, 2007

The newly-completed $612,000 sound recording studio and control room at SUNY Fredonia was officially open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, Jan. 19 at 11:30 a.m. SUNY Fredonia President Dennis L. Hefner, New York State Senator Catharine M. Young, New York State Assemblyman William L. Parment, and School of Music Director Karl Boelter made brief remarks about the value and history of the project.

Located on the second floor of the award-winning Juliet J. Rosch Recital Hall, which opened in 2004, the Fredonia School of Music Sound Recording Studio and Control Room has been designed and equipped as a state-of-the-art facility serving the university’s Bachelor of Science degree in Sound Recording Technology, which is one of the few such programs in the United States.

The facilities include a control room, two rooms for live performances, and an equipment room with supporting mechanical and electronic components. The designers and contractors, working closely with the university’s educators and audio professionals, have created a work space that can be used at any hour without disturbing, or being disturbed by, immediate surroundings. Designed to inspire confidence in students and professionals, the facility is completely free of noise from any of the outside rooms, or from infrastructure such as mechanicals, ductwork, and lighting systems. Its engineers will be able to work in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment, supplied with fresh air at all times. In addition, the facilities meet required sound pressure levels over required frequency ranges.
