508 Studios

508 StudiosLocated just south-east of Downtown Los Angeles, near the blossoming arts district adjacent to the Los Angeles River, is 508 Studios. Owner/engineer/producer Edgar Olivares was in the process of opening a new studio for songwriters and artists when he called on the services of Audio Perception for sound treatments, wiring, and integration. Consisting of two control rooms and a shared live room, the studio offers top-notch production skills, audio gear, and vibe. Edgar wanted a cool, creative space for music creation, and this place has all that and more. For audio signal path, a wide array of high-end gear was purchased for the studio. The A Room is centered around the SSL Nucleus control surface with a built-in monitor controller section. The B Room features the SSL Matrix control surface and 508 Studios Racksumming mixer, which also includes a built-in monitor controller section. Both rooms are equipped with Apple MacPro computers running a variety of software DAWs, including Apple Logic Pro, Avid Pro Tools, and Ableton Live. Universal Audio Apollo interfaces handle audio I/O in both rooms. Outboard gear includes Vintech, API, Neve, JDK, Teletronix, Empirical Labs and more. David Knauer designed and planned the patch bay layout and wiring, including mic/headphone panels for both control rooms to access the live room. In addition to the wiring, Primeacoustic sound control products were chosen for sound treatment in both control rooms and the live room. Custom drapes were also planned for the B control room, to prevent sound reflections off the back windows when needed. With the plans finalized, the Audio Perception team completed the installation and now 508 Studios is up and running. Edgar is thrilled and ready to get busy making great music.
