MIRACL is the specialized audio creative & research studio of LEONARDO.
It deals primarily with two areas: audio production and audio research. Stationary specialized audio computer workstations are supported by professional equipment in audio production, sound recording and mastering.
The recording studio has audio measuring equipment and a current-stabilized experimental station for music electronics. At MIRACL, music can be created from scratch and high-quality recordings and sound processing can be made. For this purpose, a wide range of modern musical instruments and various reference loudspeakers in different open surround formats are provided. In addition, high-resolution digital video cameras and basic sound equipment are available.
