AudioTile can completely redefine the look of a recording studio or other sound-critical space. As we’ve all learned, taming the acoustics of a room with absorption is an essential element for capturing and reproducing high-quality audio performances and broadcasts. AudioTile accomplishes this quite effectively while offering eye-catching designs that will make any room stand out from the rest.
Make no mistake; while AudioTile’s coolness factor is high, there is still plenty of science behind the art. Varying thickness built into each patent-pending AudioTile deliver excellent broadband absorption*, while the design patterns allow a unique means of blending absorption, diffusion, and reflection for optimum acoustical balance tailored to any room.
As AudioTile’s tessellated panels are spread out, broadband absorption is maximized and the areas of exposed hard surface provide high frequency scattering. By doing this, we accomplish several major goals: providing a room with good low frequency control, creating a very tight sound in areas where drums or amplifiers might be placed, and simultaneously offering a nice reverberant sound in upper areas where overhead and/or ambient room microphones would be placed.
This design approach can give a room a very natural-sounding ambience while controlling undesirable acoustical anomalies. As you might imagine, AudioTile is perfect for a wide variety of aesthetic and acoustical environments. The result is a well-controlled space essentially void of reflection issues, but which is not a “dead space”, and a frequency response with minimal low-frequency modal concerns.
For voice, it can yield a “locked-on” fundamental of the voice talent- no hollowness, or resonance, simply a clear-open response. This is exceptionally suited for today’s broadcast standards that require the highest quality mics, mic preamps and processing. And there is still more science behind this great product: AudioTile uses our proprietary Studiofoam® formula. It’s the same formula that tens of thousands of our customers have entrusted to deliver Studiofoam’s superior durability and Class B flame retardancy for the past 25 years.
Back to the art part: AudioTile designs are fun and exciting and the possibilities are almost endless for you to create one-of-a- kind designs that fit the “personality” of your room. Just take a look at the pictures below to get an idea of the creative potential of the product.
