Jam Band Studio

Gainesville Project Spotlight

In a pastoral lakeside setting in Gainesville, Florida, the Jam Band Studio stands as a testament to the harmonious blend of visionary design and masterful construction. This PhantomFocus MixRoom™ Studio was brought to life through the collaboration of musician/engineer owner Ryan Frankel, acoustic designer Carl Tatz of Carl Tatz Design®, and Robinson Renovation & Custom Homes.

The inception of Jam Band Studio came about by an ideal partnership. Ryan Frankel, envisioning a non-commercial space dedicated to recording great music, turned to RRCH, a connection made through the successful completion of a project for a close friend. The goal was clear: to create a world-class recording studio that would stand out for its acoustic excellence and aesthetic appeal. Carl Tatz, renowned for his acoustic design expertise, joined forces with RRCH, bringing the vision closer to reality.

The ambition behind Jam Band Studio was to construct a stand-alone music studio that would serve as a creative sanctuary for musicians without the constraints of a commercial studio. The studio was meticulously planned to include a PhantomFocus MixRoom™, three amp closets, a vocal booth, and a tracking room that not only met but exceeded professional recording standards.

The studio boasts 20' ceilings and a custom storefront glass exterior wall, with an interior that features custom casework and an elevation overlooking a serene private lake.

The design includes walls set 3 degrees off from each other, creating an air space between all walls and ceilings to prevent sound travel. Double doors at every opening further ensure sound isolation. The exterior's brick façade and a post-tension slab address the site's clay soil conditions, while custom HVAC ductwork eliminates sound transfer.

Inside, a half bath features a custom European barrel sink, an accent wall with blue tile, solid wood doors with glass inserts, and wood flooring for sound deadening.

The construction of Jam Band Studio was not without its challenges. Achieving the desired acoustic perfection required ultimate attention to detail and the use of custom materials. By depending on our proven design-build process, these challenges were overcome through mindful collaboration and efficient problem-solving. 

Limited space on the property necessitated the use of unique equipment for material transport. The site's poor soil conditions and drainage issues were ingeniously resolved with a drainage and retaining wall system. Moreover, the intricate specifications and details required for optimal acoustics demanded precision and expertise, ensuring the studio was built to the highest standards.
