Chicago, IL (August 17, 2016)—Hawon Jung, partner and engineer at Chicago’s Sound Vault Studios, brought in John Calder, director of retail sales at Acoustic Geometry, to help balance the sound throughout the studio.
Sound Vault Studios is a new facility that will focus on the music and film industries in Chicago. The studio is outfitted with a total of three booths, two live rooms, two control rooms and an edit/post room. The rooms were built without any parallel walls, which removed any standing waves and created a workable starting point for room acoustics.
“When creating an acoustically-balanced room, it is extremely important to have a good foundation,” says Jung. “Before treating the rooms, they were filled with reverb and slapback. Once I spoke with my colleagues for their input, Acoustic Geometry became my go-to solution. By strategically placing diffusors and absorbers throughout the rooms, we managed to create natural-sounding control rooms and live rooms with proper acoustical properties.”
Jung and his team placed 26 Acoustic Geometry medium curve diffusors and 33 two-inch-thick 2-foot-by-4-foot fabric-wrapped absorber panels on both the walls and ceilings throughout one control room, two live rooms and the edit/post room.
“There are many other choices on the market, but we chose to go with Acoustic Geometry because of its high-quality, easy-to-install and uniquely designed curve diffusors. The curve diffusors function as a diffusor and bass trap/low-frequency absorber. This one-of-a-kind product helped my team achieve our goal of creating a great-sounding and aesthetically-pleasing room, without emphasizing or canceling any frequencies. The Curve Diffusors helped my team create an exceptional-sounding room, without the hassles that typically come with installing acoustical products,” says Jung.
