1984 I was asked to build Hello Testing for Paul Goodwin. Paul had
a standard house as his headquarters in a northern suburb of Sydney.
He was recording in one of the bedrooms. I haven't any decent pictures
unfortunately.(I hope to get more off Paul.) These are all I have.
This is the classic bedroom studio and it worked very well for Paul
and he won numerous national and international awards in Radio Production
from this room.
speakers where soffit mounted at 90 degrees and a small compression
ceiling broke up the floor ceiling waves.
rear wall was treated with rockwool covered with panels of fibreboard
with a layer of fibreglass and covered with cloth. The rear wall
is also leaning forward so it it deeper off the wall at the top.
drop ceiling was returned to the back wall and rockwool squeezed
between the rafters and then covered with cloth stapled to a 2"
x 1" frame.
port was created between the compression ceiling and the front walls
so the bass could be trapped up behind the ceiling.
console was a very involved construction but allowed Paul -(pictured
above) to have all his gear around him and have his voice over actors
to work in the room with him. He has no studio attached to this
it finished up looking like this
the final room came out like this
