The Media and Arts Technology Studios is a new facility at Queen Mary University of London linking together a previous Listening Room, with our new rooms: Control Room, Performance Lab, and Plant Room. This engineering report discusses our design philosophy for our given brief to create a "world-class facility" for a space that is a "blank canvas" for researchers. We detail considerations for making an audio system that is simple for standard recording and playback while having a tremendous amount of routing options for users to create unique projects between all the connected spaces, featuring two separate spatial audio reproduction systems. The result is a 96 kHz/24 bit MADI based system using a multimode fiber optic network and dedicated wordclock throughout.
