I recently decided to upgrade my home studio by adding acoustic panels to the walls.
(links to all sites and products are in the below text – feel free to click away!)
The idea of putting in a booth seemed to be a bit much for my space, and from the recommendation of another VO Pro, I took a look at the AudiMute line of products. They have a wide variety of panels, baffles and other sound-dampening materials. Different color options and even custom print pictures are also available for an additional fee.
Who knows what the future will bring?
Well, here at Joe’s Dump Labs, we do!
Follow me on an investigation of new areas of scientific research that may forever change the studio of tomorrow…
In The Not-Too-Distant Future:
Imagine a light, flexible material that you could easily apply to walls, or even just hang from the ceiling – that would completely change the acoustic shape of your room!
Enter Acoustic Cloaking!
Using a material made from plastic sheets with a precise array of holes, Dr. Steven Cummer of Duke University was able to effectively make an object invisible to sound!
