FAMA creates Dominican Republic destination studio alongside WSDG

Posted on: Thursday 27th of May 2021

FAMA Control Room AFAMA, a boutique record label with an emphasis on artist development, has built a destination recording complex in the Dominican Republic with the help of WSDG Latin.

Available for creative retreats, song writing camps, and recording and mixing, the FAMA facility is “their dream studio”, delivered by WSDG Partner/Project Manager, Sergio Molho.

“They found a wonderful building with very sound bones and terrific views,” he says, and with FAMA’s sister company owning a boutique hotel in an adjacent building, there’s every chance it can attract international clients. Studio A’s Control and Live Rooms and Isolation booth sit on the first floor, along with an outdoor patio. The second floor offers two additional control rooms (B & C) with a shared Live Room and booth. The third floor is dedicated to a large apartment-like living room/kitchen/dining room client lounge with a panoramic view, and an expansive terrace with a shallow ‘ornamental’ pool.

Room A is distinguished by perforated wood wall and ceiling treatments, a Neve console and ADAM SD3 stereo monitoring. There are also two sound locks, one offering a unique custom-designed acoustic wooden wall. Control Room B is outfitted with a SSL Duality 48 Console, ADAM and Focal speakers for 5.1 feature film audio mixing. The compact third  control room is kitted out with an AVID-based project studio equipped with Neumann monitor peakers. The live room, which is shared between the two, has graduating, multicolour custom ‘ribbed’ acoustic wall and ceiling treatments created by Molho.

“FAMA Studios is a true gem,” Sergio Molho concludes. “It is beautiful, outfitted with an impeccable array of world-class technology, and it is owned and operated by audio professionals committed to providing their clients with the best possible recording experience. WSDG is extremely proud to have contributed our skills to this remarkable studio.”
