MudGuardâ„¢ Isolates Microphones from Noise Bleeds and External Overtones
FRANKFURT, GERMANY, APRIL 4, 2011 â€“ Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, will debut its MudGuardâ„¢ microphone isolator at Musikmesse 2011 (Hall 5.1, Stand D43). Auralexâ€™s MudGuard, which will be on display at the booth of Auralexâ€™s German distributor ICM, is the newest member of the ISO Series family of products designed to help isolate monitors, amps, microphones and stands in recording studios from hard surfaces.
â€œExternal noise bleed and overtones can turn a recording session into a sonic nightmare, which is why Auralex developed the MudGuard,â€? says Eric Smith, founder and president, Auralex Acoustics. â€œIt is easy to use, portable, and engineered for maximum effectiveness, using StudiofoamÂ® to further prevent unwanted sound and other elements from leaking into a recording. Itâ€™s a great example of our continual efforts to design quality sound protection for our customers.â€?
The Auralex MudGuard, ideal for voiceovers and vocals, features the companyâ€™s well-regarded Studiofoam sound-absorbing acoustical foam, which helps to reduce excessive room ambience and off-axis sound. It mounts easily to most microphone stands and clips, and has an adjustable height. Included hardware allows the microphone to be moved closer to the MudGuard for a more controlled sound. More open sound can be achieved by moving the microphone away from the MudGuard. The highly portable MudGuard is easy to pack up and take to various recording sessions.
