This is the new acoustic foam from Acoustic Fields. Designed with the human voice in mind, this foam targets and absorbs reflections from the walls and ceiling of your room, leaving behind just what you intended – the sound of your voice.
Get Out Of The Closet
Those of us recording our voices in home studios and offices – say for voice over work, podcasts, video narration, talking-head videos, singing, etc. – are often plagued by all the reverb-y and echo-y sound that their rooms add to to their voices. Most of the time, people end up buying (or building) baffles – semi-circular bits of foam or other kinds of material they can place behind their mics when they record. Of course if you have your mic on a desk boom, this won’t work very well. And even if you use a free-standing mic stand, you have to have ANOTHER mic stand with this baffle on it set up behind the mic. And then guess what? It STILL doesn’t eliminate room echo.
Others procure boxes stuffed with foam all around the sides and place their mics inside. That still does not eliminate room sound, and it is difficult to deal with, logistically. Plus, if you’re reading a script, it’s not at all convenient. Aaaaaand – you can’t use something like either of the above for shooting video in your room.
Some folks spend thousands of dollars on vocal isolation booths. These work – assuming they have the proper acoustic treatment on the inside, but what a way to spend your day! And they take up a huge amount of space, so forget about doing much else in that room. And unless it has air conditioning/ventilation, it can get pretty uncomfortable in there, even assuming you don’t already feel uncomfortable in a tight space like that. And you can never use that booth to record more than one person at a time, or a small vocal group. Some people record in their closets to do the same thing. If it’s stuffed with coats and/or blankets, you CAN eliminate the room sound. But more often than not, it still sounds like, well, you recorded in a closet. Even if you do manage to get a pure vocal sound, you still have the same limitations of a booth.
Acoustic Fields Acoustic Foam lets you get out of the closet! When your entire room is an asset – a partner in your vocal recording projects, you can actually use the room!No more setting up of bulky baffles or stuffing your mic into boxes. Wherever you are in the room, just put up a mic and hit “Record.”
