◌ Mr. A.R. Rahman studio

A.M. Studio Mr. A.R. Rahman Chennai, India

A.M. Studio
Music Recording and Mixing
Film Mixing

The building process was started several years before Sound Wizard was approached to take full charge of the project. We restarted almost from scratch and with the active collaboration of Studio 440 from Los Angeles , managed to complete the project within 9 months.

This recording studio is interesting because of the flexibility it offers for music recording and film mixing, thanks to variable acoustics. The control room has a large bay window offering full view of the big screen in the mix stage.

The recording area, which doubles as a mix stage, can accommodate up to 30 musicians for large recordings. There are also two additional isolation booths with large glass sliding doors, offering easy viewing to and from the main recording area.

Most acoustical treatment was done using specially imported RPG diffusers and clouds, and also high quality Maharam fabrics, giving the facility a very roomy feeling.

"Heard some songs in the music room. Congrats! The studio feels good. Alhamdulilla! I know you guys are going to tweak to get it perfect. Just wanted to let you know what I felt."- AR Rahman
