INDIANAPOLIS, IN â€“ WAV Mastering, a professional audio CD mastering studio, located in Limerick, Ireland, recently turned to Auralex Acoustics, Inc. to pull off a sound act. The industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, recently assisted WAV Mastering with balancing the sound waves in its studio space, through its state-of-the-art acoustical treatments.
The roomâ€™s unique architecture, featuring a prevalent amount of stone and glass work, as well as a wooden pitched ceiling, presented several acoustical challenges. Auralex suggested several movable products as an efficient way to address the these issues while giving the space the flexibility to open up the sound and create a tighter, more modified sound, when needed.
â€œFor a mastering studio, the preference typically is to have a very controlled sound and an even response, enabling the user to hear the most accurate audio possible from the monitors,â€? says Dave Paxton, director of operations, Auralex Acoustics. â€œThis often equates to heavy coverage; however, in a room this size, incorporating a portable treatment, such as Auralexâ€™s MAXWall and MegaLENRDs, is an ideal solution because the room can be acoustically adjusted based on specific project needs.â€?
Auralex suggested  boxes 3â€? StudioFoam wedges which include six 2â€™X4â€™X4â€? StudioFoam wedge products in each box;  boxes MegaLENRD bass traps including two 2â€™ MegaLENRDâ€™s each and  MAXWall 1141VB kit which includes 12 MAXWall panels and 4 MAXWall stands.
â€œAuralexâ€™s MegaLENRDs are definitely the best way to achieve low-frequency control,â€? says Richard Dowling, owner of WAV Mastering. â€œThe placement of the mega’s on a parallel axis to the speaker gave me better bass in the sitting position. Having an acoustically balanced space with a reduced reverb time has really improved the accuracy of my projects.â€?
