We were incredibly lucky to have John Storyk from WSDG Design Group speak at PreSonuSphere 2013. John designed Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland Studios in New York, as well as the recording studio in our brand-new PreSonus HQ.

Look What the Storyk Brought: Small Venue Designs With the Man Who Practically Invented Studio Design
Okay, let’s put it this way. This is probably the only chance you’re ever going to get to learn about recording-studio design from one of the world’s most accomplished studio architect/acousticians. And he’s aware that you don’t have $100,000 to spend. This will be a practical insight into creating a project studio on a limited budget by designing it correctly right from the start. Topics include overall design geometry, acoustic volumes, windows, floor and wall surfaces, and isolation methods.
John is a registered architect and acoustician, and a founding partner of Walters-Storyk Design Group. He has provided facility planning, acoustical, and systems-design services for the professional audio-video production and performance community since the 1969 completion of Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios in New York City. John received his architectural studies at Princeton and Columbia Universities. As an independent designer, engineer, and principal of WSDG, he has been responsible for over 3,000 world-class audio-video production facilities, including studios, radio stations, video suites, entertainment clubs, and theaters. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Audio Engineering Society (AES), and Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and is a frequent contributor to AES convention papers and professional industry periodicals.
John is a frequent lecturer at schools throughout the nation and has established courses in acoustics at Full Sail (Orlando) and Ex’Pression Center for the Media Arts (San Francisco), while maintaining adjunct professor status in Acoustics and Studio Design at the Berklee College of Music (Boston) and Stevens Institute (New Jersey).
“Within minutes of leaving last year’s PreSonusSphere, I asked to return,” John says. “The few days were very special—just the right mix of technology, education, music and food—hosted by a terrific company that has a great mission: accurate audio at affordable prices!
