Dust and Humidity Control in your booth show art Dust and Humidity Control in your booth

The Pro Audio Suite

In a studio situation, about 50% relative humidity is considered ideal for gear and instruments and comfortable for humans. 40% relative humidity is ideal for storing magnetic tapes.

When you talk about pedigree, Des Decean is the antipathies when it comes to building Radio studios...

Des is one of Australia’s most qualified and respected engineers. He has been instrumental in the introduction and launch of Digital Radio in Australia, and back in 1980, Des was the very first employee of Austereo when commercial FM radio was first launched in Australia.

As chief engineer, Des built SA FM in Adelaide into one of Australia’s first FM stations. He was a member of the Acquisition Team when Austereo acquired Fox, B105, 2DAY FM and the Triple M network. With the merger of the Triple M and Austereo networks, Des project managed the simultaneous relocation of Triple M Adelaide, Triple M  Melbourne and 2DAY FM Sydney studios.

In 1988, Des was appointed to the first Ministerial Committee on Digital Radio as the representative for Commercial Radio Australia and he was inducted into the Australian Radio Hall of Fame in 2009.

So when we wanted to do a show on Room ratios, and building challenging rooms in general, where did we turn? Where else...
