One Question Interviews: A Wilhelm Scream

Trevor Reilly (A Wilhelm Scream)

SPB: When you built your studio, what was the primary, driving concept you wanted to make sure you could capture as far as acoustics?

Reilly: The most important thing we tried to do while remodeling the studio was to make sure that the acoustics didn't work against us! We have a room with low ceilings and small dimensions compared to the "big boys" facilities, so we focused our efforts on absorption and control since the low end bass frequencies can pile up and royally fuck up the tones your trying to capture. There are tons of essays and books and articles on room modes, flutter echoes, suggested room ratios, etc. out all over the internet and beyond that we just devoured trying to get a handle on that sweet sweet science. And I could study that shit for another twenty years and still not scratch the surface that shit is so crazy. And it could make you insane. That's why some dudes get paid the big bucks to tune rooms. Anyway, ultimately, at the end of the day all that matters is what you hear during playback and sometimes you gotta remind yourself that it's so easy to get bogged down by the technical stuff and to make sure to focus your efforts on playing and writing good songs case that's the most importing thing. It's the reason we're all here!
