RSR196 – Steven Durr – Designing The Perfect Recording Studio

Steve talked about designing studios for Mark Ronson, Kid Rock, and Garth Brooks, the 1st near-field monitors ever created, Fame Studios, designing the sound system for the Indi 500, and lessons learned from Tony Robbins among many other cool things!

My guest today is Steven Durr, a studio designer and acoustical architect with an amazing list of over 2000 clients including Garth Brooks, Neil Young, Dan Auerbach, Mark Ronson, Arcade Fire, Fame Studios, RCA Studio B, Zac Brown, Jim Eno of Spoon, and Eric Johnson to name just a few.

He has also designed music venues, film studios, health care facilities, and sports venues for clients like Disney, Willie Nelson, NASCAR Motor Speedways, Library of Congress, Hilton Hotels, DreamWorks Studios, Nissan Manufacturing, Vanderbilt University, Austin City Limits, and the Cleveland Browns.

I am psyched to be talking with Steve today about what it means to design the perfect recording studio, and how you can improve your own studio space and monitoring whether a home studio or pro studio.
