The design of current recording facilities is being influenced by several factors. The proliferation of digital signal processing equipment, signal acquisition, and storage media have sparked changes in the way recording studio facilities are used. The mixture of programmed synthesis with acoustic studio performance and the resulting changes in recording technique also provide a significant influence on the design of pop music recording facilities. The impact these changes are having on facility layout, configuration, and function; noise and vibration control; the architectural acoustic environment of studios and control rooms; and the electroacoustic interface will be discussed.
