QuickSoundField

Acoustic Sciences’ QuickSoundField: redefining world class recording environments to capture life-like musical experiences, regardless of room size or conditions.

Home Studio Tracking

There is no need for sound panels in locations where the sound doesn’t arrive. The QuickSoundField configuration of StudioTraps effectively “shadows” all the room surfaces. The bare room becomes a low level diffusive time delayed ambience deep in the background of the recording. Best of all, it works the same in any room.

It’s adjustable from the old standard studio-dead sounding track to a more live-studio sounding track and anywhere between. You’re mixing at the mic, getting the sound that needs to be captured on the first take. You have to hear it to believe it.

Eight is Great

Eight StudioTraps is all you need to hear the magic. Start with a 4 foot diameter circle of traps with the chrome buttons facing inward, omni mic just about in the middle. The talent goes in the circle and puts out their heart and soul, dancing and emoting like noone is listening. The sound is captured in a perfectly natural way, often requiring no equalization, compression, or artifical reverb.

Increase the size of the circle for larger instruments such as a drum kit. Then try moving the StudioTraps closer together by decreasing the size of the circle for even greater isolation against the room sound. You’ll notice the increase in presence as the bass and midrange stay clean and balanced. No more boxy vocal booth sound that needs to be fixed in the mix.

For a different sonic flavor, many more configurations using your 8-pack of StudioTraps can be found here. And here’s another added bonus: slide your StudioTraps over next to your monitor speakers and mix down your song in an AttackWall!

World Class Results

“Michael loved my TubeTraps – he was fascinated with them. We would try all sorts of different set-ups with the TubeTraps to get a sound field that was really interesting. They save a lot of time.”
