Atlanta, GA (July 13, 2016)—GIK Acoustics has introduced its latest sound booth: the PIB (Portable Isolation Booth).
Recognizing that typical small vocal shields of thin foam are limited in their absorption capabilities, the PIB is made of 2-inch thick rigid fiberglass which reportedly effectively absorbs down to 150 Hz for improved clarity.
The PIB’s size is variable, due to its ability to fold for portability. Folded up, it can be used around acoustic instruments, as it sits 4’ tall x 3’ 7” wide. Meanwhile, unfolded, it becomes a vocal booth; and unlike a mic shield, the PIB extends to 6’6” tall x 3’7” wide. That large surface area catches and absorbs more room reflections, while the PIB also surrounds the mic, making it more natural for a singer as opposed to singing into a U shaped piece of foam.
Its thin wooden face has cutouts that improve absorption while providing some diffusion. The wood side is intended for recording and tracking environments and is designed to diffuse high frequency content across the room.
The PIB (Portable Isolation Booth) is currently available in North America with worldwide rollout expected later in 2016.
