TubeTrap, the original, archetypal bass trap, dating back to 1984, are set up in the corners of the room where they act like sonic shock absorbers. The bass trap part of the TubeTrap damps out excessive build-up of bass energy in the room and the built-in diffuser backscatters slap back, converting flutter echo into fine grained lateral ambience.
Used all over the world, ASC StudioTraps are based on the famous ASC TubeTrap, and are a powerful and versatile tool for the recording industry. These Traps not only absorb sound energy, but create diffusion to give the room a more defined and natural sound. StudioTraps are available in a wide variety of colors.
The Quick Sound Field is a nearfield acoustic environment that improves the quality of the signal at the mic. It uses StudioTraps to surround and separate both mic and talent from the room. The QSF creates a controlled and very stable acoustic workstation and completes the missing link, the acoustic part of the mic environment in today's digital studio.
"...As I listened I was absolutely amazed to hear, and in my mind's eye, to see, microphone positions in the stereo panorama that I hadn't seen in decades - I had maybe never heard these mixes as well as with the ATTACK Wall. I was absolutely knocked out, just floored. I ordered an ATTACK Wall right there, and it's been a part of my studio world ever since." -- Bruce Swedien, five-time Grammy award winning engineer --
We build specialty acoustics for architects, acoustic engineers and designers, acousticians, studio and media room builders, interior designers and sound contractors. We provide a number of OEM products that are marketed by others and maintain a strict level of confidentiality.
A well-voiced blend of wide bandwidth absorption and diffusion. Mount on walls and ceiling to reduce bass buildup and develop ambient brightness. The PolyTrap's diffusion rate is so strong, its point of diffusion convergence, where any sense of multiple reflections is lost, lies within a foot of the wall.
The objective of performing the MATT test in your listening room is to determine where you might move your speakers, listening position, and/or where to add acoustic treatment to your room to obtain the highest quality sound possible from the components in your listening environment.
...for exploring the musical intelligibility of your audio playback listening system.
Now you can just listen to your sound system and tell if it is working right or not. The MATT test track is "Go/No-Go" type of audio test and it doesn't take electronic analyzers or a computer program to tell you if your room sounds good. You just use your ears and they tell you what's up with your system.
Regardless of whether you have a professional "downtown" studio project, or a dedicated theater/audio room in your house, ASC's IsoWall and IsoCeiling soundproofing is the only way to go.
The SoundPlank is perfect for absorbing excess mid-range frequencies, while keeping the acoustics bright and alive. Reverberation and echo signals are controlled while a fine-grained, diffusive reflection pattern fills the room. The resulting acoustic signature is smooth and uniform throughout.
Sometimes we need more absorption at a certain frequency or bandwidth than the standard TubeTrap for that same frequency range can provide. That’s when SuperTraps are called into play.
Raise your subwoofer up to its full performance potential. The SubTrap is more than a simple isolation stand. In addition to isolation, it absorbs excess bass and decouples your sub-woofer from room modes. The end result is a unique product available only from ASC.
Finally, a room can both sound great and look great.
ASC has combined the science of sound absorption with the art of printing and produced the PicturePanel. Where ever the artwork goes up, the noise goes down. Used in the office and lobby, the restaurant, at home in the great room or home theater, in fellowship halls and even the school gym.
Built to interior design standards, it features bevel cut face, crisp corners and smooth finish, comes in a wide variety of a beautiful fabrics and is trimmed out by a paintable, black or white picture frame. The ASC Sound Panel is completely fiinished on all sides, including the back.
With hundreds of hours of real world testing, ASC’s engineering and product development technicians have produced the best acoustical soffit available anywhere. Acoustic engineers have known for hundreds of years that a soffit is an excellent sound diffuser. ASC improved the idea to include absorption and custom room tuning.
Tired of floor-ceiling reflections and vertical resonant modes wreaking havoc with your monitor response?
Now you can achieve the broadband acoustic improvement offered by ASC TubeTraps in your MonitorStands. This is a specially adapted set of TubeTraps designed just for monitors.
The PanelTrap addresses a wide range of acoustic needs, making virtually any room sound significantly better. Corner loaded bass trapping is a snap, giving you control of flutter echo and boundary loading problems, mode buildup, standing waves and impulse ringing. Every PanelTrap has built-in treble diffusion; sound remains “bright” and natural, not the dull acoustic qualities of foam. Get the PanelTrap difference and start laying down some amazing tracks today.
As more and more people live closer together in tightly packed subdivisions, the mental stress of noise becomes a serious issue. Noise nuisance complaints are on the rise and litigation is increasing. The problem is not limited to wild parties or garage rock bands. Noise that ordinarily wouldn't bother anybody, like ringing phones, pool pumps, or a TV, have now become the sound-track of modern living.
The TowerTrap is a corner loaded bass trap that was designed to resemble a hi-fi loudspeaker. It was developed specifically to address those customers looking for high performance audio with a designer look that is so subtle, it nearly disappears.
The ASC CeilingPanel is another acoustic building block for creative architects and designers that are concerned with large room acoustic control. The science behind the CeilingPanel is simple: control of directional noise by creating an acoustic speed bump.
Retain the ambience of hubbub, enhance the clairity of table top conversation and quiet intrusions from across the room. Perfect retrofit for restaurants and coffee shops, fellowship and activity halls, meeting and conference rooms and specialty rooms such as home theaters, museums, and art galleries.
MixClouds offer studios the broadband acoustic control and noise reduction they need to control flutter while mixing tracks. This is more than an easy to hang flat panel product. ASC includes the MixCloud as part of an overall custom acoustic plan for your studio, so there’s no guesswork. The end result will clearly sound better because it was heard better in the first place. Resonance coloration, sound cancellation and room ringing are minimized by ASC MixClouds.
The latest acoustic innovation at ASC is the CoolTrap, which provides 75% specular diffusion and 25% bass absorption. ASC's Engineering Department wanted a basic “building block” for architects and interior designers concerned about the acoustic properties of their designs. The modular 12” x 12” size opens up nearly unlimited possibilities for use on walls and ceilings.
Sound waves emanate from a loudspeaker in much the same way as a beam of light radiates from its source. And, like the beam of light, will be reflected off nearby surfaces. These reflections can be beneficial or deleterious depending upon their intensity and time of arrival, in relation to the direct sound from the speaker. Reflections arriving too soon (early reflections) after the direct sound, confuse the ear/brain, creating chaos in the image, defocusing and confusing the three dimensiona...
The MatrixPanel, designed to be used when your listening position is near a wall, will soften the sonic reflection of the wall without deadening the sound.
Architects inspired our engineering department to search for a Panel design that brought calmness, blending well into the home theater, pleasing the whole family. We tried dozens of ideas, designing by feel and visual aesthetics. Ultimately we arrived at the CinemaPanel as the Panel of minimum intrusion, perfect for home theaters.
A huge improvement to ceiling suspended baffles, the SoundFlag takes advantage of the increased sound pressure found in room corners. For the large space with high RT-60, a simple installation of SoundFlags is often all you need. With SoundFlags you won't have to move lights, sprinklers, and security devices to achieve a better sound.
Acoustic engineers often specify baffle systems in large open spaces where the walls can’t be used for acoustic control. Baffle systems maintain bright local ambiance while limiting noise from across the room
The PCAD allows you to fine-tune the performance of your room by providing broadband absorption to reduce the "echo" in the room. These unique panels have the added benefit of treble reflectors distributed evenly throughout the panel. This is the perfect product for fine tuning your listening room, calming the room just enough without overly deadening the sound.
With the OfficeQuiet system, productivity goes up as the noise goes down.
If you have outdoor compressors, transformers or HVAC equipment in close proximity to residential areas, odds are good that you need an ASC SoundFence. There are many types of noise barriers available, but none of them absorb noise like the SoundFence. They also share a common theme: high cost. The SoundFence gets the job done better while costing a fraction of comparable barrier systems.
Recording Studios, and particularly live rooms need quiet HVAC supply and return ducting. ASC designs and manufacturers in-line mufflers and inlet/outlet baffle diffusers. Most residential and commercial HVAC equipment creates too much noise for use in recording studios. We build specialty mufflers that combine built-in bass traps with standard treble range absorbing panels. We not only deliver silent air into rooms but we reduce the acoustic crosstalk between rooms through the HVAC ducts....
The ASC Planar Trap is a freestanding acoustic room component designed to control strong boundary reflections off side, front and back walls - while also providing an added degree of low frequency bass absorption.
A free-standing, re-positional absorber, combined with a poly-diffusive back panel is ideal for controlling strong boundary reflections off walls, windows and doors.
The MixStation was engineered by Art Noxon specifically for the small to mid-sized mixing room. The SoundPlanks are an essential addition to deal with the wall opposite of the listening position. There are two variations in the layout of SoundPlank arrays for the Mix Station. The front of the room is always the same but the back can be altered without degrading the sound for the engineer
With a playing time of over 74 minutes, the disc should prove an invaluable tool to help audiophiles optimally set up their systems and rooms by ear—and the music's pretty good, too!—John Atkinson
The ASC BaffleCloud is yet another acoustic tool for reducing RT-60 in large spaces with high open plenum ceilings. The BaffleCloud, when suspended in a grid, can reduce the noise buildup typical in large spaces with lots of people.
Initially concieved of as an ambience alignment tool for the front end and rear walls of high performance high power audio playback rooms, the Bastoni product line has expanded to include less expensive, small Bastoni panels and even smaller ones, sized to drop into acoustic tile ceiling T-bar grids or be flush momunted to walls.
The IsoTile Ceiling Panel is designed to isolate and absorb ceiling transmitted noise in both directions. Just drop in place on top of your existing acoustic ceiling tiles. ASC’s IsoTile is engineered to block and absorb sound.
When the first ASR-9 site was being set up at LAX in 1990, the noise level were found to be totally objectionable -upwards of 82dBA in the equipment room. ASC was contracted by FAA site technicians and we provided temporary noise barriers. After extensive engineering analysis, working closely with FAA engineers, we developed our first air breathing baffle system, the NCP-10. This was in response to the FAA request for the "the finest system you can provide".
