“Our live rooms, isolation booth and control room were meticulously designed by acoustician Douglas Doherty of DACS Audio. Douglas was able to provide us with spaces we can trust and are able to capture high quality sound, providing a creative, unique and versatile environment when catering to different recording scenarios.”
Simon Pollack, Owner of The Mother Lode Recording Studio

We have been designing, building and treating recording studios and music rooms since the 1990s and our range of absorbers and diffusers have been tried and thoroughly road tested in projects across the UK and USA.  We tend to be involved in projects where sound quality and acoustic accuracy is paramount to our clients. We often work closely with architects and interior designers ensuring an economical high performance outcome – the result is happy customers.

Effective and visually striking acoustic consultancy services

Our consultancy brings to bear a uniquely wide range of expertise and experience, coupled with design originality and an eminently practical approach. We produce well considered solutions to specific problems, which look good, are efficient and economical. We do not tend to use off-the-shelf solutions that are usually both expensive and ‘catch all’. We prefer to specifically design the acoustic solutions required for each individual situation. Many studios have benefitted from our work.

We have improved already existing rooms, and enabled unused/’unusable’ spaces to house fully professional post-production or writing rooms. In addition we have worked with many commercial clients – restaurants, bars and nightclubs – on the acoustics of their venues, for sound leakage issues, internal sound exposure legislation for staff, and treatment to control the sound produced, resulting in many great sounding bars and venues that don’t disturb the neighbours!

"DACS completely brought our mastering studio to life. I would recommend this to anyone thinking of having a full custom treatment job done in their studio. The accuracy we can achieve in our mixes and masters since being able to hear the monitors in this way is incredible."
Alex Powell - Label Worx - Mastering Engineer
