Auralex Introduces SonoLite Bass Traps at the 2012 NAMM Show

SonoLite Bass Trap Absorbers Offer a Cost-Effective, Easy-to-Install Low-Frequency Sound Solution

ANAHEIM, CA — Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, unveils its new SonoLite Bass Trap at the 2012 NAMM Show (Hall A, Booth 6798).

Auralex’s new SonoLite Bass Trap is a 3″ thick, 2? x 2? fabric-wrapped StudiofoamPro core absorption panel. SonoLite Bass Traps are the perfect solution for low-frequency sound control. The core of each panel is made of Auralex’s StudiofoamPro acoustical foam; the panel is then covered in a velour fabric to add a stylish appeal to accent the decor of any room.

SonoLite Bass Traps are reverse-beveled for corner mounting. The panel is plastic-backed for improved rigidity and durability. SonoLite Bass Traps are packaged with six EZ-Stick™ SonoLite Mounting Tabs for incredibly easy, removable installation.

Based on Auralex’s SonoLite absorption panels, which are designed to reduce unwanted reflections and flutter echo in critical listening environments such as control rooms, live rooms and rehearsal spaces, the SonoLite Bass Traps are also available in both black and tan finish.

“The SonoLite Bass Trap is the result of direct feedback from our customers — offering an incredibly effective, affordable and professional looking low-frequency solution to match our very popular SonoLite Panels,” says Mike Buratto, acoustical engineer at Auralex Acoustics. “At Auralex, we strive to meet customer demand in innovation.”

Quality bass traps that are substantial enough have always been expensive to buy or intricate and time-consuming to build, but not anymore. SonoLite Bass Traps are very affordable and easy to install. For a cost-effective yet tasteful way to improve the acoustics in any room, SonoLite Bass Trap absorption panels are the solution.

Vatican Television Center Chooses Clear-Com Eclipse and Tempest2400 for HD OB Van

Staff Coordinates Coverage of Pope’s Daily Activities and Events in Vatican City Using Clear-Com Intercoms

ROME, ITALY, 17 JANUARY 2012 ? Clear-Com, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, is pleased to announce that Vatican Television Center, known in Italy as Centro Televisivo Vaticano (CTV), the official broadcaster of Vatican City, has selected Eclipse-Median digital matrix and Tempest2400 digital wireless intercoms to help cover the official activities of Pope Benedict XVI as well as the ongoing religious events and services held at the Vatican. The extensive communication capabilities offered by the four connected Eclipse-Median, six I-Series intercom panels, two Tempest BaseStations and four Tempest BeltStations assure that CTV broadcasts have fast access to reliable, high-quality communications.

Since 1983, CTV, headquartered in Via del Pellegrino in Vatican City, has broadcast the Pope’s pastoral ministry and other activities of the Holy See. Each year, they cover about 200 events from inside the Vatican as well as during the Pope’s travels in Italy and abroad. The network’s footage is picked up via satellite by broadcasters, news agencies and editing facilities around the world. CTV has no production studios, as a majority of the broadcaster’s work is ENG. The new OB van, which has full HD capability, has become the central hub for critical operations at the network. Its four operating areas include the audio room, equipment room, primary and secondary production control with VTR and camera control.

“The combination of the Eclipse digital matrix with V-Series panels and Tempest2400 gives CTV a tremendous amount of communications flexibility, making it much less stressful to manage the broadcasting of the Pope’s ministry,” says Karlie Miles, Director of EMEA Sales, Clear-Com. “Our system has certainly proven to function flawlessly during critical situations. The signal transmitted from the Tempest2400 wireless intercom system easily penetrates the thick walls of the church and can travel far distances to the van. We are thrilled that CTV has entrusted Clear-Com to help deliver the Pontiff’s and Vatican’s message to worshippers around the world.”

The 112-port Eclipse-Medians, which interface with the I-Series intercom panels, provide the CTV team with fast audio routing, many communication paths and sophisticated features for ample flexibility and exhaustive functionality. Operating in the 2.4 GHz frequency band, the Tempest2400 utilizes patented Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum radio technology, which withstands frequency interference and maintains high quality audio for reliable communications. The two- or four-channel version Tempest2400 enables the employees in the CTV OB van to effectively coordinate between the OB’s production area and camera operators. Clear-Com improves the broadcasting experience of CTV by driving efficient collaboration with the robust Eclipse-Median and high performing Tempest2400 wireless system.

Auralex Custom Great GRAMMA Gives Oli Brown the Right Sound Clarity in Concert

GRAMMA Isolation Risers Decouple Guitar Amps on Stage

LONDON, JANUARY 11, 2012 — Every time award-winning British blues guitarist Oli Brown plays live with his band, he relies on Auralex’s Great GRAMMA (Gig and Recording, Amp and Monitor, Modulation Attenuator) isolation riser to decouple his guitar amplifier from the stage. The Great GRAMMA lets Brown deliver a clean front-of-house mix without the additional boom and swell associated with non-isolated instrument amplifiers. In addition, Auralex created a custom fabric covering for Brown’s Great GRAMMA.

Brown is one of the hottest young blues guitarists on the scene today. His latest release, Heads I Win Tails You Lose, won the 2011 British Blues Award for Best Album. Legendary British blues veteran Mike Vernon, known for his work with Fleetwood Mac, Eric Clapton and David Bowie, came out of retirement to produce the album.

During a recording session, Brown discovered Auralex’s Great GRAMMA, and he tried it out. He fell in love with the difference it made in the sound of his amp. “Hearing is believing,” says Brown. “The Great GRAMMA is amazing and it is now a main part of my stage set up.”

The Great GRAMMA, patented by Auralex, is an effective isolation device that is used to float an amp or loudspeaker, yielding nearly total acoustic isolation between an instrument amp or monitor speaker and the stage. By employing a Great GRAMMA, performers realize clarity of sound that honestly represents their artistic intent. The Great GRAMMA is 30 in. long x 19 in. wide x 2.75 in. high, with a maximum weight limit of 300 lbs. The Great GRAMMA also offers a 30 percent larger surface area to accommodate popular speaker configurations that feature 4 in. x 12 in., 15 in. or 18 in. speakers.

Brown took his custom Great GRAMMA on the road with him last month for his performances in Norwich, UK and Jakarta, Indonesia. He will also be traveling with his Auralex Great GRAMMA in 2012, as he already has several shows lined up throughout the UK and France.

Auralex ProMAX Panels can also be grouped together to form a portable vocal booth on the fly. They can also be positioned around a drum kit to “tune” room sounds in recordings and live performance venues. Able to be extended up to eight feet high, Auralex ProMAX Panels feature an adjustable contour for precision positioning.

“Based on the success of our MAX-Wall Mobile Acoustical Environment, we are proud to present this cost-effective portable absorption solution to the NAMM market,” says Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics. “As an extremely flexible acoustical solution, the ProMax is ideal for musicians and on-the-go recording applications.”
