Auralex Aural Xpanders. In the art of audio sound capture, the recording engineer must contend with and balance many sonic issues (external noise bleed, structure-borne resonance, off-axis colorations) in order to arrive at sounds that are truly sonically robust.
In the art of audio sound capture, the recording engineer must contend with and balance many sonic issues (external noise bleed, structure-borne resonance, off-axis colorations) in order to arrive at sounds that are truly sonically robust.
Aural•Xpanders give the recording engineer a high degree of control by providing the capability to filter the undesirable external overtones that tend to push the engineer to over-process on the back-end during the mixing stage.
Aural•Xpanders offer the recording engineer a means of tonal control and passive filtering before the sound ever hits the signal path and before ever reaching for a knob or booting-up a plug-in.

Provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, Instantly improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system.
Your loudspeakers are the most critical components you use to verify the quality of your work. No matter how good your mixer, mics, preamps, cables, and other pieces of gear that you've invested in, you're not truly hearing what your recordings sound like until you isolate your monitors from their environment.
This is where the Auralex MoPADs come in. MoPADs provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, Instantly improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system.
MoPADs are affordable, easy to implement and really effective at decoupling your monitors from your room and all its contents. You've gotta get some! Until you do, you'll never know what your recordings really sound like.
- Dimensions: 12" long x 4" wide
- Weight Limit: 100lbs.
- 4 pads per set.
"...MoPads can tighten up the transients and upper-bass frequencies to a greater extent when used with high-end monitors ... but you should also hear a noticeable improvement in your monitoring environment even when MoPads are used with low-cost monitors. In short, MoPads are an inexpensive, simple solution to a widespread problem shared by most studios."
- Electronic Musician, July 2003
"...If you place your monitors on a desk or table, or - probably the most common scenario - on top of one of those studio furniture desks where there's a rack on either side of your computer monitor, purchase MoPads. The reduction in resonance in your studio furniture will likely be immediately apparent, and is well worth the price of admission."
- EQ Magazine, May 2002
"As I toted the MoPads from studio to studio for evaluation, I was impressed by the range of audible improvements realized. By decoupling the monitors from other objects, speakers are free to perform as originally designed. In most cases speakers immediately sounded better. The most common improvement was a tighter, more focused bass response. ... In all cases, the MoPads were an easy-to-implement step towards monitoring accuracy; do not rely on the resonance of others!"
