Studio Bruit d'Avril, 3D

Bruit d’Avril is daylight, oak floors and a fireplace.
It has been designed in three ACed parts, full Mogami wired.

The Room

Bruit d'Avril, La Room

10m2 “Box in the box”, largely basstrapped, diffused, curtained, etc …
In short, the result is a superb small room where you can record absolutely anything you want.

The Lounge

Bruit d'Avril, Le Salon

The 20m2 Lounge room allows you to have a drink by the fireplace, a warm blanket on your knees while Pepette purrs next to it.
Of course you can also just chill out on Instagram or play and record the piano, but you’ll hear the crackle of the fire …

The Control Room

Bruit d'Avril, La Régie

The Control Room is 10m2, with direct visual contact on the Room and the Lounge, it’s also roughly 150 meters of cables hidden between the patches and the gear, and it’s above all the heart of the studio.

The Wine Cellar

Bruit d'Avril, La Cave A Vin

This is the fourth of the Bruit d’Avril three parts.
Half cubic, half cylindrical, 6m2 of exposed stones with small bottle niches filled with… bottles. You can record there or use it as a natural reverb.

So ? When do we start ?
