Working closely with Hi-Five Studio’s owner, Ryan Rosmann, Haverstick Designs helped to convert a century-old building in Milwaukee into a 5000-square-foot commercial recording facility complete with two (2) isolation booths, a 1300-square-foot Live Room, two (2) amp rooms, a spacious control room and lounge. A “room within a room” technique with extensive isolation detail was implemented to isolate the studio from the surrounding residential neighborhood and adjacent dog park. Kinetics ISOMax Clips, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound along with standard building materials were used during construction. Sound isolation doors were provided by IsoStore. The studio’s acoustical treatment package includes custom-designed ceiling clouds, bass traps, and diffusers. Hi-Five Studio is also the first studio in the upper Midwest to utilize the Flex-48 Adaptive Treatment System by Acoustical Fulfillment, allowing the engineers to adapt the liveliness of the rooms on a session-by-session basis. Opening its doors at the end of 2017, Hi-Five Studio has quickly become one of the most unique recording studios in its region.
