Conceived and developed by Donato Masci - Studio Sound Service, the acoustics has been projected to achieve an extremely stable and defined image, linear for every kind of monitor and for all the audible spectrum.

The main monitors are Genelec 1034b system with 7073a subwoofer while the nearfields are a pair of KRK V88 biAmp speakers beside a standard Yamaha NS-10 Studio monitors amped with a NAD. A Tivoli Audio Model One is also available for mono checkings.

The DAW recording system is a Pro Tools® 10 HD4 with 192 blue series ADA converters for a total of 32 Ins and 56 analog Outs. A second DAW system used for masters is based on a SoundBlade® Sonic Solution software. This makes possible to print the mix in a standard Hi resolution format (up to 192KHz @24bit stereo) whatever the original PT session frequency and depth is. Both digital systems are clocked by an Antelope Isochrone OCX master clock generator. We have almost all the plug-ins available in commerce, including the Waves Mercury Bundle, Brainworx, FabFilter, Sonnox, Sound Toys, PSP and many more. Two Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad core cards with complete plug-ins bundle are also installed.

Inside the studio, there are two recording rooms, both 25m2, one of which has a beautiful Yamaha C3 and a cozy leather sofa. Besides, some of the rooms of the Villa are used as live recording rooms, especially the main hall, about 50m2, which with its elegant atmosphere provides a unique result both aesthetically and acoustically.
