Finger Lakes Community College Recording StudiosFLCC has a long-standing and well-respected audio recording program. Their existing studios were in need of an upgrade to correct mechanical noise and other issues. The college decided instead to pursue new studios to be located in an existing cafeteria space. The challenges acoustically were considerable due to the potential for overhead noise from labs. Design was complicated by low structural heights and column locations. The Facility was designed as state of the art with automated API and SSL consoles, data linked in ear monitor systems, and flexible signal routing systems. Key Elements Acoustic Isolation from the overlying classrooms and labs Acoustic Isolation of multiple live and recording spaces. Mechanical Noise Control Cabling and Communication systems
Pal Mac TV StudioAVL was contracted by the Palmyra Macedon School District (PALMAC) to design new television studio facilities to allow both studio shooting and on site sports shooting live to air. Distances between the various sports venues (football field, gymnasiums, pool) and the studio exceeded 1500 feet. A fiber optic solution needed to be adopted to manage the long distances. Another requirement was to allow for on field live post game interviews with IFB fold back to the talent so they could hear prompting from the studio as well as confidence monitoring of the microphones in use. This was accomplished with digital audio connections from the studio to the remote locations with Aviom remote controls on the field end.

SUC Buffalo Rockwell Hall Recording StudioAVL was tasked with providing a recital hall with excellent acoustical qualities within an existing building that posed significant challenges. Additionally, we were contracted to design a connected recording studio that would allow events in the Ciminelli Hall and the larger performing arts center within Rockwell Hall to be recorded. Details of this extensive SUC Buffalo/Rockwell Hall/Ciminelli Recital Hall project can be found under “Recital & Rehearsal Halls” on this website.
WGMC RadioWGMC Radio is a non-profit jazz radio station that operates out of facilities shared with the Greece Central School District. WGMC was to be moved to new quarters at Greece Olympia High School. AVL was contracted to facilitate the move and provide design for the new radio station. The prior WGMC facility did some live on air small jazz groups, but with limited capabilities. In the new facility WGMC wanted to be able to provide live on air for larger jazz groups in an acoustically designed isolated space. They also wanted to be able to provide simultaneous video recording and multi-track digital audio recording of the sessions.
