Acoustic Solutions, Treatment & Soundproofing
Acoustic Treatment Solutions & Materials
Acoustic Treatment and Soundproofing are two very different things but both can make a huge difference to your space - no matter how big or small it is.
Whether you want some acoustic solutions for the home, in the office, a school/university, a control room, a live room, a restaurant or a big church auditorium, our specially designed Auralex® products can be of service and will help you achieve the results you expect.
WHERE TO USE ACOUSTIC TREATMENTHere are a few situations where an acoustic solution might benefit you:
Small rooms will encounter different acoustic problems to large rooms, which means the solution will be different in every situation.
That is why there are different sizes, shapes and materials of acoustic products. Whether it's flutter echoes, excessive low end or unwanted ambience, acoustically treating your room will benefit you and your music.

ACOUSTIC TREATMENT MATERIALSWe are the official UK distributor for Auralex® acoustical and soundproofing materials – meaning only we can provide you with professional grade acoustic and soundproofing products.
Here are some of the acoustic treatment products that you can use to improve the sound in your space. Our experts can help you decide which products are suitable for your needs.
Auralex AbsorptionThe two most commonly-used sound absorption materials are high-quality acoustic foam, Studiofoam® and specialized acoustic fiberglass, ProPanels™ (and it’s not the stuff you can buy at the hardware store). For brevity, at times we'll generically call acoustic foam just plain "foam," although there are very dramatic differences in cell structure and density between acoustic foam and the thousands of other types we could manufacture. (This is why you can't just run down to the local shop and buy mattress pads with which to acoustically treat your studio).
In addition to Studiofoam and ProPanels, Auralex offers a variety of absorptive products, some of which are fire-rated. Auralex Studiofoam is well-suited to alleviate slap and flutter echo, the two most common problems in rooms not specifically designed for music recording and performance. In fact, Studiofoam can turn even the most cavernous warehouse or gymnasium into a suitable acoustic environment.
Auralex Bass TrapsLow frequency sound waves are extremely long - and thus very strong - they are the toughest to control. This is true no matter whether you're attempting to block their transmission to a neighboring space or trying to absorb them to clean up the low frequency response within a room.
Controlling low frequency sound is harder than controlling mid or high frequency sound and generally requires more effort and expense.
Luckily, the Auralex line of Acoustic Bass Traps can help: LENRD Bass Traps, VENUS Bass Traps, Metro LENRD, DST LENRD, Mega LENRD, Sono Columns, M224 ProPanels and SonoLite Bass Traps.
Auralex DiffusionAcoustic sound diffusion keeps sound waves from grouping, so there are no hot spots or nulls in a room. In fact, sound diffusion greatly widens the "sweet spot" and lends a strong, 3D sense of openness to a room, making it easier to hear "into" a mix. Diffusion obliterates standing waves and flutter echoes without simply removing acoustic energy from the space or greatly changing the frequency content of the sound. Some famous recording artists like to perform in strongly diffusive environments because of the openness they hear. Acoustic sound diffusion can make a small space seem large and a large space seem even larger.
Sound diffusion in a control room imparts the all-important Initial Time Delay (ITD) that keeps early reflections off room boundaries from getting to your ears too soon and smearing the direct sound you hear from your monitors. In conjunction with sound absorption, sound diffusion can effectively turn virtually any space into one that is appropriate and useful for the purpose of recording or monitoring sound with a high degree of accuracy.

Auralex ConstructionIf one of your main concerns in achieving studio acoustics is stopping sound from travelling in or out of your room, this is most likely addressed with a multi-layered studio construction approach - adding mass and/or airspace to your existing structure or better yet, building a room within a room.
Auralex Studiofoam acoustic absorption panels are not an acoustic sound barrier, so it will do little to stop sound from travelling through your walls, ceiling or floor. Auralex Acoustics offers numerous sound studio construction products to assist with your acoustic sound isolation issues, which are all outlined in our on-line document entitled "Acoustics 101" located in our literature section.
Products include: Mineral Insulation Fibre, U-Boat Floor Floaters, RC-8 Resilient Channel, SheetBlok & Sheetblok Plus, StopGap
Auralex Room Systems
Auralex took decades of our experience solving famous folks’ acoustical problems and packed it all into our Roominator kits. They look great, they’re affordable and they provide top-shelf results. These affordable kits can easily tame the sound problems that often plague commonly-sized rooms. They cover more square footage than competing kits that are comparably priced.
With the Performance series Roominator kits from Auralex, everyone from the newcomer to the most experienced pro can sound great without having to hassle with formulas or physics. Without fixing your room acoustics, your room isn’t letting your gear’s true sound come through. Get all the sound you have paid for.
Products include: D36, Alpha DST, Project 2, D108L, Deluxe Plus, ProPlus, SonoFlat SFS112 & SFS184
Auralex Portable Solutions
Auralex® Acoustics offers a variety of portable treatment options that allows you to reconfigure and tune your space for the ultimate flexibility in your room. Auralex® portable treatments are highly effective absorption treatments for recording and performance applications in the studio, on stage, classroom, in the home and more. They are perfect for the travelling musician and recording pro on-the-go.
If you don't work from a fixed location a permanent acoustic solution won't be appropriate. A temporary setup can be beneficial for places such as schools, business conferences - or anyone that wants something they can take with them and setup with little hassle.
