Let’s talk about ASC and live sound. On the stage or at the practice facility performers depend on the surrounding acoustics for cues, synchronization, and envelopment.
Each venue is different — from performance hall size, flooring, seating, stage size, and ensemble configuration. Each of these factors contribute, in some way, to the overall sound the performers hear themselves–and the sound that they project to the audience.
Timing and Cohesion
Both early and late reflections, combined with hall reverberation, affect synchronization and cohesion of the group. Careful control of these acoustic artifacts can lead to a ‘tighter’ performance, and higher performance satisfaction.
Balanced Reference Cues
While a performer is taking cues from other members of the ensemble, they also must be monitoring their own performance–adjusting volume, timing and tonality dynamically with the group. An optimal balance between their own sound and the rest of the group should be the goal on stage. Too much direct feedback of their own sound, and a performer quickly loses connection with the group. On the other hand, lack of supporting reflections and will often cause overcompensation and balance is quickly lost.
The versatile StudioTrap can be adjusted to either absorb sound or provide diffusive feedback–as needed. It is mounted on a height-adjustable stand to accommodate a variety of configurations for nearly any venue.
