Manchester-based DJ training facility Make Me A DJ recently refitted one of its trio of studios with Artnovion acoustic treatment panels as part of an upgrade to transform the space into a fully-featured teaching and music production resource. Originally situated above legendary nightclub Sankeys, Make Me A DJ is now located in the Ancoats district of the city, with its three studios commercially available outside of teaching sessions.
A variety of Artnovion products featured in the refit, including Orion W wooden and Andes fabric absorbers to control excessive reverberation and reflections and Myron E diffusers to tune the room’s sweet spot. Orion bass traps were also employed for their fine-tuning capabilities, ensuring an accurate, highly-controlled low end even at high monitoring or mixing levels.
MMADJ founder Mark Bradbury (known as Rudosa in the international techno scene) has released tracks on some of the most venerated techno labels including Moments In Time, Soma, We Are The Brave and Second State over the last ten years. And his experience of music production has informed his choice of studio spec…
“It’s always been important to me to have industry-standard equipment in our studios,” he explains, “so that alongside our highly experienced teaching staff – all of whom have professional backgrounds in music production – students get a feel for real world facilities.
“I first became aware of Artnovion when our room designer, Jan Morel (renowned acoustician who numbers David Guetta and Martin Garrix among his clients), introduced the range to me a few years ago and we used the products in one of our downstairs studios. The recent installation has transformed our third room from a “teaching only” space to a full production studio – in both rooms the panels have made a huge difference to relfections and really solidified the low end response in particular. We now have the perfect environments for students to learn how to produce and even mix records.”
