As with most businesses, most ground realities in the Radio business are constantly changing. To reflect this, Radio City (Mumbai) decided to convert one of their vocal booths into a small edit suite. Considering its original purpose the room dimensions were small and the room was directly between one of their on-air studios and their production studio posing a potential noise hazard to both the adjoining rooms. Further, the small dimensions of the room pose a huge challenge in getting the right reference sound.
Measures were taken to block the sound coming from the observation window. To prevent sound from pouring into the new room & to prevent sound from the room disturbing the other rooms, the acoustic door at the entrance was replaced to eliminate the sound leakage into the air-lock.
The room was damped and bass traps were added to significantly reduce the bass buildup. Slat resonators around the bottom periphery of the room were added to reduce the low-mid frequency buildup.
With careful orientation of the monitoring system, they got a studio that efficiently took care of their daily production work.
