The video provides an extensive look at mau5’s state-of-the-art space, which has been under construction for three years.
The studio, which is located in the house’s master bedroom, is suspended from what used to be a vaulted ceiling. It was done to improve the room’s acoustics and preserve its aesthetics (many of the cables are hidden under the floor).
In terms of equipment, the room is one of the only Dolby Atmos mix studios outside of Dolby itself. It contains nine custom-made ATC speakers that are positioned to produce 3D audio, a $500,000 Neve analog console, two walls of analog modular synthesizers, and over a dozen rare keyboard synths.
And if that wasn’t enough, “The mau5 House” also includes a server room in the basement, which powers his home network and graphics studio.
Watch the video above.

Deadmau5 recently gave Razer Music a walkthrough of his impressive new studio. The Canadian producer showed off the various components of the workspace, including his extensive collection of synths.
In addition to the tour, mau5 and engineer Steve Duda broke down his electro house track, “Imaginary Friends,” which was produced with Ableton Live 9. The two discussed the song’s structure, melodies, and drum patterns, along with mau5’s overall creative process.

If you haven’t heard, deadmau5 called out Kanye West for alleged software piracy on Tuesday and the two have been going back and forth on Twitter ever since. Of course, news of the beef quickly spread and plenty of DJs have chimed in, including Dillon Francis and Jauz.
