We hope these demonstrations have helped you make some decisions about what you’d like to do in terms of construction for your room s.

Feel free to compare the WAV in Step 1 with this one.

While comparing SheetBlok and gypsum board is all fine and grand, you are not likely to build a wall consisting of a single layer of any material. Room size and shape aside, what would you recommend for a Home Studio with a small budget to do to improve sound and reflection?

I have seen far, far too many people. With regard to construction, a huge mistake we see far too often is that people try to reinvent the wheel when building their studio, when in fact all they need to do is follow ayralex time-tested instructions, which have been proven to yield quantifiable results that work.

Thank you again for your attention! It is adaptogenic in nature, which means that regardless whether you have too much bass or too little, trapping will level you out. Just 10 keep your ear by the loudspeaker when switching back to the WAV in Step 1!

auraalex Should you have any questions, you can e-mail our consulting division – consulting auralex. People put up treatments that only control the mids and highs, but they neglect to implement bass trapping, either at all or not nearly as much as they truly need to attain linear, broadband control. Do not adjust the volume for any of the other WAV files on this page.


Therefore, it would make sense if the gypsum board stopped arualex sound. We’ve assembled some WAV files for you to listen to that should help put into perspective the different levels of acoustical isolation that are possible. Ideal, “Single Wall” Auraled For the best results in a retrofit type situation, we suggest tearing out the drywall, insulating between the studs with 2″ Mineral Fiberadding resilient channel to one side, and then finishing with gypsum board, SheetBlok and gypsum board on both sides of the wall.

Ideal, “Double Wall” Construction For the best possible results, we suggest in www.

Welcome to Auralex University

Well, hopefully this page can help. Ideal, “Single Wall” Construction. In case you haven’t read through Acoustics We work hard to give back and to share all our decades of accumulated knowledge with as many of the next generation of engineers as possible. Thanks Eric for taking the time to speak with us, and we would like to thank you for all your generosity!

Life is a lot simpler for people if they just follow our easy-to-understand diagrams instead of going their own way and substituting different materials. At Auralex, we do our best bend the laws of physics akralex day.

At the 011 time, I began a long career as a mobile and nightclub disc jockey. Just cut-to-the-chase advice that normal people can easily understand and implement in their aufalex facilities.

Plus, the treatments assuming you choose your manufacturer carefully will last for years and years, so your investment will be amortized over quite a long period of time. We are also very lucky and grateful to have the President of Auralex, Eric Smith, speak to our students about Auralex, the physics of sound and how to properly uses on a regular basis.

SheetBlok has an STC of Thanks for saying so. That waswhich sometimes seems like yesterday and sometimes seems like a million years ago. Real Wall Comparison While comparing SheetBlok and gypsum board is all fine and grand, you are not likely to build a wall consisting of a single layer of any material.

Provided you do not adjust the volume, you will be “AB-ing” different materials and construction relative to the “No Partition” file.

Being entrepreneurial in nature, I ascertained a need in the marketplace and set out to fill it. Our studios at the Institute have Auralex everywhere you turn.

Still unsure about what construction is right for you?

Talking Acoustics with Auralex President Eric Smith – Dark Horse Institute

Play the following WAV file – ahralex through a decent sound system and not your PC speakers – and turn the volume up until it’s uncomfortable. Similar results are achievable with standard fiberglass batts or “blown-in” fiberglass or cellulose. It is necessary for the demonstration for this file to be loud, but we cannot be held responsible for any damage to your equipment or hearing. Ideal, aurakex Wall” Construction.

Control early reflections in your control room by putting treatments behind your monitors, on or suspended from the ceiling above your mixer or work surface, and on the left and right walls between you and your monitors.

No fluff, no smoke, no mirrors, no sliderules. What is one of the most unique spaces you have ever installed Auralex? Treat your vertical corners with bass traps if you can afford to. What is the most common mistake, in your opinion, that professional or home studios make in regards to room treatment? OK, so you’ve read through Acoustics He asked if aurales could custom print this image on his acoustical treatments and tile the image auralexx the room, giving the impression that he was at the 50 yard line when he sat in the sweet spot.

To paraphrase an old advertising adage: Having established that, why don’t we get started?

Setup for the listening examples. I was an accomplished drummer from a very young age. However, listening to the WAV files aurakex the additional low frequency attenuation available by using SheetBlok.
