Monument Sounds Live room is constructed of stone, wood diffusers and absorption for the best of all worlds. The room is a 17 x 16 space that does have lower ceilings but we are fine with this. Modern technology allows us to get solid, tight drums sounds and still be able to make them larger than life suring the mix phase. The fact is, we have always been a studio owner with lower ceilings at 8.5 feet and we are fine with that. If we need higher ceilings we can eaily go up to another partnered studio in denver and get higher spaces. We work with what we have.
