A room dedicated for the housing of mechanical devices, normally for the purpose of isolating them from areas where humans work. This may be due to noise or heat, or other environmental considerations. As it applies to audio studios, this is the room where you might place tape machines, computers, decks and other devices that produce audible machine noise. By placing these devices in a space other than your recording and mixing environment, you are freeing your creative space from the noise that accompanies them, thus allowing focused recordings and mixing. You can also provide separate, and more suitable, ventilation for them without disturbing the main environment. Machine Rooms are found in forms such as expensively finished rooms in professional studios, bedroom closets in home studios and everything in between.
