“Steven’s design and creative solutions solved my many concerns and exceeded my every expectation. My studio sounds and looks incredible.”

 

“I interviewed many designers and contractors to build my dream studio. After I visited my friend and fellow composer Paul Dinletir’s studio (audiomachine) that was built by Steven, I immediately knew he was the right choice.Located in a quiet neighborhood, my room had many challenges. Because of its location and scenic views, I wanted large windows and needed to be sure I would not create a disturbance. Steven’s design and creative solutions solved my many concerns and exceeded my every expectation. My studio sounds and looks incredible.Under Steven’s watchful eye, his crew was highly professional, efficient, and solved complex problems with amazing results. When it comes to recording studios, acoustic treatments, design, and construction, I would recommend Steven Klein for any job, any size. Thanks again to Steven and his great crew! ”

“He transformed the biggest problems of asymmetry, poor ratios, peaked ceilings, and existing windows, into magnificent highlights.”

 

“I first meet Steven in 2000 when I hired him as a consultant for my small home project studio. His approach, recommendations, and results turned unusable rooms into viable production space. When I sold my home, the buyer insisted that I leave my studio as is. I looked forward to building my ultimate studio with Steven.Completed in 2010, Sea Vista, is a state of the art recording facility. Steven successfully
resolved fundamental flaws in the room I wanted as my control room. He transformed the biggest problems of asymmetry, poor ratios, peaked ceilings, and existing windows, into magnificent highlights. The warmth of the color palette inspires creativity. I wanted to display my guitar collection; it is now a main feature of the room.Steven brought a commitment to excellence to every detail. The acoustics are amazing, the
translation of my work to the outside world is something I don’t need to think about. The custom furniture draws remarks from everyone. My band loves rehearsing and recording in the performance rooms. Steven not only built my studio he has built a friendship that will last. He has earned a 5 star recommendation. “

“I constantly have people asking me, Why does it sound so great in here?”
Steven Klein Sound Control Room provided me with expert advice, consultation, and construction of my professional recording studio. Steven works side by side with his clients to ensure the project is built to the clients’ specific requirements and within a reasonable budget. I have had my professional studio now for three years, and I constantly have people asking me ‘Why does it sound so great in here,’ and it is my distinct pleasure to refer every enthusiast I meet to the work of Steven Klein. Steven has remained my dear friend over the years, and has given me advice on recording and the business of music. He is fun and enthusiastic about designing an environment musicians can work comfortably and enjoy being creative. I encourage anyone looking to create a professional or home studio to contact Steven Klein.”

“My studio is simply my dream studio.”

“My recording studio, designed and built by Steven Klein, is simply, my, “Dream studio.” Literally, the studio I’ve always dreamt of having. It is also the best studio I’ve ever worked in, and I’ve worked in many Nashville and L.A. so called, “pro” studios. Despite the close proximity to the 405 Freeway AND the Van Nuys Airport, I’ve never had any problems whatsoever with outside sound or noise interference. The acoustics of the place are simply, “perfect.” This is the only studio I’ve ever worked in where I can simply put a microphone in front of a musician and say, “Play,” and it sounds good. I would recommend Steven Klein without reservation for any studio design, consultation, or construction or remodel project, of any kind, period. My studio may be viewed at its website, www.johnm.com. There is a, “Testimonials” page on that site where some of my clients offer their comments about my studio and its design. I will gladly accept questions or requests for personal references. “

“Steven and his crew far exceeded my expectations.”

“I waited two years for Steven Klein to have time to build two new studios for me and it was well worth the wait. Steven and his crew far exceeded my expectations. They came when they said they would and finished on time and within budget. I even had three other studios working during the construction. Steven’s crews are high quality people and did not interfere with my high profile clients. They were totally professional. The two studios sound great and looked marvelous.
I recently sold the business. The new owners made some surface updates to the other rooms Steven remodeled 9 years ago. They couldn’t bring themselves to change anything in the two new studios. They say they’re beautiful. This is just one example of Sound Control Room, Inc work quality. Thank you Steven!”

“His no-compromise attention to detail and finish puts him in a league of his own.”

“In looking to build what would be my 3rd studio in 1999, I interviewed several studio designer/builders and finally met Steven Klein. I knew immediately that he would be the one to build what I needed. It was a very ambitious project as there was no existing structure and everything had to be built from the dirt up. Steven designed, contracted, and built a beautiful studio for me which has been my main place of work and in constant use for the last decade. It was done on time and on budget. His no-compromise attention to detail and finish puts him in a league of his own. We are still very good friends (how many people can say that about their contractor after such a huge undertaking) and every time I’ve needed additional work such as adding diffusers, hanging large speakers and LCD flat screens, I don’t hesitate to call Steven because I know that the job will be done right. Thanks for everything Steven.”

” … Steven gets audio, and always has. He delivers studios on time, and on budget.”

“When I acquired the sound facility that became The Magnolia Studios, I knew there was one contractor who combined the requisite skills and understanding to take an old, out-of-date mix room, and turn it into the THX certified Mixing stage of my dreams. Steve Klein turned The Magnolia Studios’ Stage A into a first class, THX-certified, digital mixing theater, that was a great example of digital audio post in a comfortable 21st century environment. I would trust Steve Klein with ANY studio project I would build, anytime, anywhere. Combining his many years of experience as a top recording engineer, with his construction knowledge, Steve “gets audio”, and always has. He delivers studios on time, and on budget.”

“The sound studios remain a true highlight of our facility.”

“Steven Klein was a pleasure to work with in designing our multiple Sound Studios within our Corporate Office facility. Steven’s input on design, cost and materials was invaluable as it is essential for our business that the studio’s design met our very strict criteria. We appreciated the time that Steven was on site troubleshooting design challenges alongside myself and several of our sound engineers. He provided very thorough information, data and plans and was instrumental in the success of the build. The sound studios remain a true highlight of our facility and have gotten rave reviews from the many artists, musicians and customers who have worked, played and toured the building. “

 Loteria Grill “On our quest to improve the acoustics yet keep our trademark styling, I was fortunate to meet Steven…”

“Our large contemporary style restaurant sounded like a loud gymnasium and generated many complaints from guest. We were not providing the atmosphere they deserved. On our quest to improve the acoustics yet keep our trademark styling, I was fortunate to meet Steven, who was very creative in solving our big noise problem. He took tremendous care to provide a solution as aesthetically pleasing as it was effective. Amazingly, this was installed in one day without any interruption to our business. Steven is a delight and very easy to work with. In his world, Steven is a magician. I liked working with Steven and his results so much that I asked him to help with a similar issue at our Hollywood location.”

results…”

We are very satisfied with his work and thrilled with the sonic results, both in the control room monitoring environment and in the ability to record everything from tight rhythm sections to strings and horns with remarkable fidelity and presence.”

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your design, especially since the studio is on the east coast.”

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your design of my third version of Giant Steps Recording. You did a tremendous job especially since the studio is on the east coast. You were very accessibly, thorough and easy to work with. It looks great, feels great, and sounds great. I can’t tell you how many of my clients have commented on how spacious and open it feels. They just love the vibe. I hadn’t planned on recording big bands with this facility due to the size, but I was convinced on giving it a try and as a result have been booking quite a few 15-17 piece horn bands. The tracking rooms sound so musical making it so easy to get good sounds. Thanks again for a job well done.”

“My mixes took a huge leap forward once I had Steven tine my studio …”

“Working with Steven Klein over the years has been a real pleasure. My mixes took a huge leap forward once I had Steven tune my studio over a decade ago. Since then I have used Sound Control Room in various locations and for all kinds of recordings. The materials are durable and Steven’s knowledge is top notch. I would not be able to work in the way I to today without Steven. He told me when we first started working together that the Sound Control Room material would last a lifetime. It has lasted 11 years and looks brand new. I have used it every day since.”
Jim Kaufman, CEO/Producer/Composer
“Steven Klein’s Sound Control Room is the choice we made for excellence in our studio.”

“Working with Steven Klein’s Sound Control Room is the choice we made for excellence in our studio. The thoughts before the install is why the execution was so smooth. The fact that Steven has a background in engineering with major artists, brings a wealth of knowledge to his design. Steven’s passion for sound made the process a pleasure and I highly recommend him.”
Paul Gilman, Producer/Composer
