What’s Tracking – Featuring QSF, Episode 5 Featuring Brian “Dr. Vibb” Vibberts, Miles Mosley, and the QuickSoundField
Brian Vibberts uses his portable QuickSoundField to record Miles Mosley on a 250-year-old upright bass for “What’s Tracking – Featuring QSF” 5th webisode. The QuickSoundField provides an acoustically controlled recording space, which Brian uses for all of his recordings. In this episode of “What’s Tracking,” Brian uses the technique to while demonstrating various mics and filters for the show.
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
Make a circle with 8 StudioTraps, so that the traps are spaced close together. Step into the circle and pull each StudioTrap in towards the center 6 inches or so. You’ll need to keep the opening for the talent just about the same size, but the rest of traps will be almost touching.
By moving the StudioTraps closer together, more sound is kept inside the QSF and less is allowed to leak out. The strength of the brightness increases. There are many more configurations in addition to this one to accommodate your acoustic needs
