Michael talked about building recording studios around the world from Mutt Lange to Blackbird Studios to your home studio wherever you are.

My guest today is Michael Cronin who has never once had a hit record or for that matter even recorded one himself, but nevertheless has played an important role in the creation of hundreds of millions of records through his famous designs for over 200 world class recording studios all around the globe.

Michael started out restoring a 19th century London church as a modern recording studio for the Eurythmics in 1984. Then worked with Tom Hidley afterwards creating his own company, Michael Cronin Acoustic Construction. Some of Michael studios include: Guillermo Tell and MEGA in Paris, France; the renovation of MOSFILM in Moscow, Russia;  BOP Studios Bophuthatswana, South Africa; The Tracking Room, Ocean Way, Blackbird Studios and Masterfonics in Nashville, Tennessee; Capri Digital in Capri, Italy, and even producer Mutt Lange’s famed hideaway studio Sully Sound in Tou de Pays, Switzerland.

In addition, Michael has been a pioneer in designing and building educational recording facilities such as the multi-studio complexes he has done in New York City, Miami, and Atlanta for SAE, the world’s largest multimedia academy.

He has also contributed his skills to culturally significant facilities, including the archivist mastering room at the Country Music Hall of Fame and acoustical consulting work for the Songwriters Hall of Fame, both in Nashville, Tennessee. He is also one of the most sought after designers and builders of advanced, high-end home theaters in the U.S.
