The new New York City rehearsal space for theatrical and recording artists Blue Man Group has been outfitted with StudioFoam wedges and T’Fusor Sound diffusors from Auralex Acoustics/
“When we moved into the new space, we had to get the vocal booth as dead as possible,“ says Chris Mulhauser, musical instrument manager of Blue Man Productions. “Auralex played a big part in that through their StudioFoam and T’Fusor Diffusors products, they work great.
“The rehearsal space needed to be able to accommodate multiple drummer/percussionists and loud amps, so we needed to reduce the ring and maintain a lot of control, but still have good transients and a lot of midrange detail,” continues Mulhauser. “Being able to absorb and diffuse helped this room fill its role much better.”
Auralex’s two-inch StudioFoam Wedges can be used to treat small – to medium-sized areas including vocal booths, control rooms and sound studios, as they effectively kill standing waves and flutter echoes.
Made from a lightweight-yet-sturdy high-impact thermoplastic, T’Fusor Sound Diffusors drop easily into ceiling grids and are wall mountable with pushpins, staples, nails, Tubetak, Velcro or 2-sided tape. T’Fusors imparts a sense of controlled spaciousness and work best when mounted with a varying alignment of the “T” pattern.
