    The acoustical characteristics of any room are determined by its architecture. Room architecture consists of room size, room shape and room finishes. This means that room size, shape and finishes determine the room acoustics. The first factor affecting room acoustics, room size, is usually determined by the number of seats needed for the room and the layout of those seats.  The aspect ratio (ratio of the ceiling height to room width to the room length) is also a critical factor… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics has introduced new SheetBlok-AF Sound Isolation Barrier material, designed for system integrators seeking sound isolation solutions for both new construction and retrofit situations in mind. SheetBlok-AF is a thin, dense isolator with a Class A fire-rated PVC laminate on its surface for a finished aesthetic. Intended as a solution for improved sound isolation between adjacent spaces, SheetBlok-AF can be implemented anywhere an increase in sound isolation is desired. SheetBlok-AF is at least 6 dB more effective than solid… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics is expanding its line of ProPanels fabric wrapped acoustical absorption panels, which are designed to provide an upscale look with the high-performance absorption qualities that reduce unwanted room reflections (slap and flutter echoes, for instance) to improve the listening environment. ProPanels meet the Class A fire rating and are available in a choice of 12 standard color/fabric options. ProPanels standard sizes include: 2’x2’, 2’x4’, 4’x8’ and 4’x4’ wall panels (with beveled or straight edges) and 2’x4’ corner panel… View this story

    In working with sound and acoustics, here’s something many of us do but may not actually think about enough: Comparisons between measured and predicted reverberation times (RTs). RT (a.k.a., “RT60,” “T60,” “T,” et al) is a widely used quantifier of the acoustical behavior of a room. Sound decays in a room. (Albeit less quickly in some rooms than in others, as we’re all painfully aware.) RT is defined as how long it takes sound in a room to decay by… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics, is now shipping its new HoverMat Isolation Platform. Like Auralex’s critically acclaimed HoverDeck, the HoverMat isolates a drum set from the floor or a hollow stage, reducing coloration from floor resonance by decoupling the drum kit, thereby resulting in a tighter, more pure sound for both studio and live applications. The HoverMat differs from the HoverDeck by offering a solution that is more portable, lighter and easier to set up & tear down (it simply rolls up) and… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics is now shipping the QuadFusor Sound Diffusor. Made from the same Class A flame retardant molded thermoplastic as Auralex’s acclaimed T’Fusor, the QuadFusor combines four of the company’s MiniFusors and arrays them in an attractive 2-foot-by-2-foot pattern. This Class A fire-rated acoustical diffusor is suitable for commercial spaces and can be dropped into a ceiling grid or mounted to a wall or ceiling. Versatile and affordable, the QuadFusor offers a rare combination of great performance, Class A flame… View this story

    “The most important piece of equipment in a recording studio is the control room,” says Phil Greene, chief engineer and part-owner of Normandy Sound, located in Warren, Rhode Island. It’s that kind of thinking that led Normandy, one of the first 24-track studios in the region, to become the first facility in the six states to feature a certified Live-End/Dead-End control room. Since the new room opened last October, business has been good, but that’s not necessarily due to the… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics is now shipping its new ProPAD monitor isolation pad, the latest product in the ISO (Instant Sound Optimizer) line. The ProPAD is a premium-performance variant of the company’s MoPAD, offering increased durability and structural integrity, and providing superior isolation from the vibrations and resonant energy created by studio monitors. The ProPAD prevents this energy from being transmitted into the supporting furniture, which would greatly color the monitor sound and degrade their imaging. The ProPAD is sold in stereo… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   A room lacking sound absorption material can be a nightmare for mixing. I’ve mixed in a few of these rooms myself.  From what I’ve found, a number of you mix in such rooms on a regular basis.  In fact, the most common question I get is, “what the best way to mix in a gymnasium?” A gymnasium has: —Concrete walls—Hardwood floors—And ceilings open to the steel rafters My first thought is… View this story
