Philadelphia, PA (October 2, 2017)—When Derrick Wright needed to isolate his drums for quiet songs on Adele’s recent world tour, he went to an off-stage isolated drum room carried by the tour, created with an Auralex HoverDeck under the kit and ProMAX V2 panels surrounding it to ensure a consistent acoustical environment from show to show.
He dug the result so much that he’s since decked out his personal studio with Auralex as well. There, Auralex HoverMats and HoverDeck are placed under the drums and the upright piano; ProPanels are secured to the walls; Sustain Bamboo Diffusors are on the walls and the ceilings; and SonoLite panels line the walls of the of the studio’s vocal booth.
Under the control room monitor speakers, and under the guitar amps in the studio, Auralex ISO-Series ProPAD and GRAMMA v2 isolation platforms keep them fully isolated from the space’s natural vibrations.
Wright says the Auralex products in his studio connect to his live work with Adele and other artists that he’s toured with, including Toni Braxton, Babyface and Thalía. “The way I’m using these panels, I have a consistent acoustical environment that extends from the studio to the stage,” he said. “Adele or anyone else could send me a rough mix and I can add drum and percussion parts, and it would have the same sound and feel as I do on stage with them. Auralex has now become part of my sound, on stage and in the studio.”
