Someone had mentioned our IsoThermal TubeTraps to him, for recording purposes, and that we were located in Eugene, Oregon, his home town…so he came by and picked up some TubeTraps and an AttackWall for his recording studio he is currently working on, and is 100% sold on them now!
He is trying to get a more acoustical, organic sound while he is building out his studio, and our products worked perfectly for him. These images were from a visit to his studio, while they were laying tracks down for a song that might be on his upcoming album.
Art Noxon, the inventor of TubeTraps and owner of Acoustic Sciences Corporation, offered some advice on the laying out his setup, for maximum results. It’s laid out diagonally across the room, to best utilize the combination of the AttackWall and TubeTraps.
I was there to hear them record, and can honestly say, that the sound coming out was absolutely incredible!
