Our 250-seat Performance Theatre is an incredible space for recording live shows and performance groups such as choirs, an orchestra, and big bands. The Performance Theatre is connected to Studio A, allowing groups to use the theatre’s stage while also utilizing the tools available in our largest control room. The Performance Theatre utilizes the advanced E-Coustic room enhancement, giving us the capability to dynamically change the sound and feel of the theatre from a small intimate setting to a stadium-sized venue or any size in between. This system, designed by Steve Barbar of E-coustic Systems in Belmont, MA, uses 4 microphones, two upstage and two downstage, and over 100 speakers surrounding the entire room to generate the acoustic simulations.Unlike traditional reverb, where the effect is directed “at you” to create space, the E-Coustic system surrounds you with perfectly timed reflections, bathing you in the sound and feel of whatever room size and sound makes sense for your music. The E-coustic system represents 10+ years of ongoing development in hardware and software. This system leverages the steady increase in processing power required by the data services industry. It uses Intel server class 64 bit processing and powerful algorithms to generate the sound of virtually any acoustic space, from a small room to the grand canyon and anything in between!
This type of system is also used in Netflix Corporate Auditorium, Park Avenue Armory, Millenium Park, Theatro Municipal, Ascend Amphitheater, and 12Stone Church.
