MAU5TRAP is the name of a new project detailed on Pilchner Schoustal International’s website. After deadmau5 moved to his new estate in Campbellville, his former master bedroom wing of the residence was transformed into the high tech studio space in the photos below.
Martin Pilchner says the room design is centered around the main monitoring system consisting of a stereo pair of flush mounted ATC 300 speakers. The room boundaries are designed with controlled reflection geometry and also integrate a custom made racking system designed to accommodate deadmau5’s gigantic synthesizer collection. In addition to the main monitors, the room also incorporates a 5.1 and 7.1 mid field surround system as well as a fully calibrated 11.3 Dolby Atmos system.
The most interesting image to emerge in Pilchner Schoustal’s gallery are the above two snapshots. While gear heads continually focus on the mau5trap overlords selections of production gizmos, these are the first high quality images to show the isolation booth.
The microphone, glass window and guitar bring credence to the idea of Joel and his cohorts creating some analog music or welcoming vocalists to join in on studio sessions. The thought of deadmau5 records blending singing with progressive house beats tickles my fancy, that’s for sure. After all, radio hits like ‘Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff’ and ‘The Veldt’ shot his career to the stratosphere thanks to catchy sing-along-worthy lyrics.
