How can the Sound Shield Live help my recordings?

In a non-acoustically treated room there can be a lot of unwanted sound interference while recording, such as echos from the singers voice reverberating off the surrounding surfaces.

These reflecting sound waves can ruin recordings of even the best performances, but the can be minimized by absorption and diffusion panels on the walls and ceiling of the recording room. Sound treating a room this way can be rather costly and requires a vast knowledge of how the sound interacts with surrounding surfaces.

The Sound Shield Live is the cost effective solution to these recording issues.

It is composed of two key components: the folding diffusion shell, and the foam absorption lining. The outer shell is composed two curved metal plates are vented with small holes designed to redirect unwanted audio from reaching the microphone. The inner walls of the diffusion shell are lined with high quality foam used to absorb the source's reflecting audio waves that are being recorded after they reach the microphone.
