Forward Studios, Roma
Our Firm is glad to announce the new opening of the first Italian "World-Class Mastering Studio", designed and realized by the renowned Acustic Designer "Francis Manzella" (FM Design LTD - NY, USA). He previously designed the Sterling Sound Studios, the new Universal Master- ing Studio and MasterDisk in NY, among the over one hundred studios he designed world wide during his career.
During the last 10 years Mr. Manzella was nominated many times and won the famous "Tec Award" for the design of acoustics in critical listening environments, and is now a reference for room construc- tion, acoustic design, practicality and elegance.
After our Sound Engineers spent over three years selecting mastering gear, cabling, conversion techniques, downgrading and fine tuning, we felt the need for the room to be "helpful" to the listening and mastering process. Mr. Manzella was the best choice: with his critical room design our Engineers are now able to be extremely precise when processing the signal, down to 0.25 dB differences on specific frequencies. This allows us to be up to the highest international standards for mastering, delivering flawless products.
