Magic Garden Mastering Installs RealTraps Modules

RealTraps in New Milford, Conn., a designer and manufacturer of acoustic treatment systems owned by Ethan Winer and Doug Ferrara, announces that Magic Garden Mastering in Columbus, Ohio, installed RealTraps Modular Room Kits in its new 12x21x8-foot room.

According to Magic Garden Mastering owner Brian Lucey, “I prefer to work in an intimate space, and conventional wisdom says that a large room is needed to deal with a host of predictable issues. RealTraps Modular Room Kits, including Diffusor Modules and Mondo Modules, solve the difficulties inherent in small rooms and made setting up this room fast and easy. I couldn’t be happier working in here, and the transition from getting in to working was less than a day.”

The design for the room sees Mondo Modules in all wall-wall, wall-ceiling and wall-floor corners, HF Mondo Modules at the first reflection points, and Diffusor Modules in the rear of the room. There is additional treatment on the ceiling as needed. This strategy is outlined in detail in the video “Hearing Is Believing” on RealTraps’ Website.
