    Auralex Acoustics is now shipping the new Studio6 Bass Trap.  Low-frequency sound waves are extremely long and they are the toughest to control. This is true no matter whether you’re attempting to block their transmission to a neighboring space or trying to absorb them to clean up the low frequency response within a room. Controlling low frequency sound is harder than controlling mid- or high-frequency sound and generally requires more effort and expense.  In order to address these concerns, Auralex… View this story

    Taking place from 18–20 July at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, the Audio Engineering Society International Conference on Sound Field Control will focus on the understanding of the active management of audio delivered within an acoustical environment. Over 30 papers will be presented on topics ranging from sound zones through higher-order ambisonics, mode matching and psychoacoustics, to sound field control theories, microphone arrays and transducer arrays . Sponsors of the conference so far include Comhear, Harman, mh acoustics and… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics is now shipping the new StudioDoor isolation door.  For acoustically isolated studios, the Auralex StudioDoor features an exclusive layering of components differing from other isolation doors, providing Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating, resulting in greatly reduced room-to-room sound transmission.   All StudioDoors are wood-based with a proprietary Auralex core to maximize mass and eliminate resonance issues, and StudioDoor 48, the more massive of the two StudioDoor iterations, includes Auralex SheetBlok Sound Barrier for additional isolation. StudioDoor is available… View this story

    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Editors note: This article was originally published in 1997, but the information is still relevant today. You can read and comment on the original article here. Reverb is one of the most interesting aspects of digital signal processing effects for audio. It is a form of processing that is well-suited to digital processing, while being completely impractical with analog electronics. Because of this, digital signal processing has had a profound affect on… View this story

    GIK Acoustics has announced a collaboration with Abbey Road Institute, the educational arm of the recording studio. The Abbey Road Institute was launched in London in March 2015 to prepare students for careers in the music industry, operating from purpose-built, newly constructed studio facilities at the Abbey Road site in northwest London. The Institute offers vocationally oriented courses with a mix of theoretical and practical modules in music production and audio engineering. The first intake of students was in September… View this story

    Many studios built in the 1970’s were designed not to have any acoustic influence on the recorded sound produced in them. This was accomplished by over-deadening walls, floors and ceilings so no sound waves (leakage) would reflect and add (or subtract) from the instrument’s original sound waves. Bass traps were purpose-built for controlling sound from electric bass amps, small isolated (and dead sounding) drum booths were mandatory and heavy gobos or baffles were used around all musicians separating them and… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Please don’t say soundproofing, if you mean room treatment – and vice versa. I’m happy more people are realizing the influence acoustics has on their listening (and viewing) experience. I know the room is the final component in all entertainment systems (and also the first component, if you’re a musician or recording engineer), and that message is reaching farther every day. So that’s good, right? As with all things, a little info can be dangerous.… View this story
