Schools & Universities

After detailed consultation with users, we offer acoustic design that meets their objectives and takes into account national and international standards.

Through a good implementation of acoustic planning we achieve:

  • Classrooms with regulated acoustics for fatigue-free learning and teaching
  • Cafeterias / canteens with controlled sound levels
  • Lecture halls with acoustics adapted to the use of the room
  • Library spaces with quiet working areas
  • Auditoriums with excellent speech intelligibility
  • Sound reinforcement systems that are tailored to the rooms properties

 

Studios

Control room acoustics with passive and active absorbers. Tuning of acoustics to the monitoring system. Optimization of recording rooms for the desired use. Changeable acoustics for different applications. Stereo, surround and multichannel control rooms.

From my workshop activities at various universities, I knew Prof. Middelkamp and his work from personal experience, and it was clear to me that I would ask him to design my studio. In the end, the acoustics of my recording room not only exceeded my expectations, but were commented on as "perfect" by all of my production partners (including Humberto Gatica, mixing engineer Thriller, M.Jackson, etc...) without exception and with undisguised enthusiasm. All musicians, whether classical, jazz or pop, without exception, feel so comfortable in this room that they like to stay for many hours to make music together.

I still cannot understand how it was possible for Matthias Middelkamp to design such a room, in which I can rehearse, concertize and record with the most diverse instrumentations from solo to orchestra with perfect sound.

From the beginning, Matthias Middelkamp advocated that the appearance should also be appealing and planned accordingly. A suggestion that was to prove extremely important in this period of transition from pure audio to audio-visual production.

Gastronomy

The right sound level, the right music over the right sound system, the feeling of being able to have private conversations at the same time and yet being in a community all contribute to the success of a gastronomic business.
