We here at Airshow’s studios in Takoma Park were excited to find out that our friends at SIA Acoustics have been nominated for a NAMM TEC Award in Outstanding Creative Achievement for “Best Studio Design Project” for their design of our new Allyworld space. Presented annually during The NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA the TEC Awards are one of the most prestigious honors given to the innovative people, companies, and gear of the music, film, TV, and video game industries.
This is well-deserved recognition. Sam Berkow and his team at SIA approached the project with enthusiasm and ingenuity. Their hard work helped realize chief engineer Charlie Pilzer’s vision for expanding the size and capabilities of our Takoma Park recording and mastering facility. The creation of Allyworld triples the amount of available recording space and provides an amazing venue in which to record and perform in front of an audience.
SIA Acoustic’s acoustic design for Allyworld incorporates high-quality acoustic treatments and innovative isolation solutions. To make the sound fantastic in a live setting, they also recommended a superb PA system. We’d like to acknowledge VUE AudioTechnik, RealAcoustix, Soundproof Windows and Kinetics Noise Control for their attention to the specific needs of the project and for helping ensure that Allyworld thrills our recording clients.
The 31st Annual TEC Awards will be held January 23, 2016, at The NAMM Show in the Hilton Pacific Ballroom, Anaheim, CA. Voting takes place throughout December. Visit the TEC Awards site for more info.
