Primacoustic releases IsoTools studio solutions
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-07-02)
Isolation of sound in the studio and even in live venues is critical for the best overall sonic picture, and it's often a difficult task with today's high volume levels.
For over 10 years Primacoustic's new IsoTool™ range
has addressed many unique acoustic attenuation and isolation problems
that are common where capturing pristine sound is essential.
Whether isolating vocals with Voxguard, reducing mic stand vibrations
with TriPad, or incorporating an iPhone or iPod Touch into your stage
set-up with TelePad. See below for more details on each of the five
products in the new range.
Peter James, Shure Distribution Managing Director, said: "At Shure
Distribution we strive to partner with companies that are pushing
boundaries and innovating for recording and performing musicians.
Primacoustic has been at the forefront of acoustic treatments for many
years, and this latest range shows that they're still right on top of
Peter Janis, President of Primacoustic added: "We're delighted with
this new range of products. Primacoustic is already a byword for
innovation, and this latest range can only improve the quality of
sound right across the board, from studio or location recording
through to live sound and spoken word."
The new IsoTool™ range in full:
A high performance ambient noise attenuator, Voxguard (Pictured: $120 USD MSRP)designed to mount on a
microphone stand and surround a recording microphone, to help control
the sound from entering the microphone by minimising the reflections
in the room.
Crashguard ($40 USD MSRP) is designed to shield a drum mic and attenuate the sound of
cymbals during recording. Small enough so that it will not get in the
way and durable enough to sustain repeated abuse from drummers.
The TriPad ($25 USD MSRP)is a tripod mic stand isolator designed to prevent
vibrations from the stage and floor from entering the mic. By
decoupling the mic stand from the floor, the TriPad can significantly
reduce the resonance created by drums, bass, foot-falls. Fits all
popular tripod mic stands.
The KickStand ($90 USD MSRP) is a microphone boom stand isolator designed to
eliminate resonance vibrations from the stage, drum riser and studio
floor from entering the mic. The KickStand helps eliminate resonance
by both decoupling the mic stand from the source, and introducing a
stabilising mass to hold the microphone in place
Designed for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch, TelePad ($35 USD MSRP)allows the
on-stage musician to position this 'application-rich marvel' right on
the microphone stand so that it can be used as a teleprompter for
lyrics, song chords, playback, charts and set list. TelePad can be
used for portrait and landscape viewing.
