Auralex® Now Shipping SonoFiber™ Panels

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, JUNE 26, 2013 – Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments and currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, is now shipping its new SonoFiber™ Panels, available in charcoal gray and arctic white.

SonoFiber is the perfect solution for contractors and system integrators with projects requiring a Class A fire rating without the aesthetic demands of designer treatments such as fabric-covered panels. SonoFiber is ideal for nightclubs, restaurants, gymnasiums, houses of worship, multi-purpose rooms and any other commercial or industrial environment where aesthetic concerns are secondary to performance and safety.

SonoFiber is a 1″ thick natural fiber acoustic absorptive panel that offers significant advantages over the more traditional Class A melamine foam alternatives, including:
• Lower cost per square foot
• Sound absorption coefficients equal to or better than 2″ thick melamine products
• A flexible form that will not puncture or break like melamine panels
• Safe, easy, dust-free installations

RedNet® Selected by WH Platts for Atlanta Television Production Facility

Los Angeles, CA, June 13, 2013 – Focusrite®’s RedNet® networked audio I/O technology is being specified by a number of leading designers, contractors and system integrators – a recent example of which is design/build integrator WH Platts Company, who specified the RedNet system for a high-profile client in the Atlanta area. WH Platts was looking to develop for the client the ability to use pro audio gear in an interconnected network environment as part of this major production facility. They chose RedNet because it best suited the client’s needs and installed five different RedNet I/O units: RedNet 1 – eight-channel AD/DA; RedNet 2 – 16-channel AD/DA; RedNet 3 – 32 channel digital I/O; RedNet 4 – eight-channel remote gain control Mic Pre; RedNet 5 – 32 channel HD Bridge for ProTools HD, which streamlined the operation’s workflow. Paul Yurt, RedNet product specialist, flew in from New York to work closely with the WH Platts design team on-site and to oversee the installation and ensure that it was smoothly integrated and fully operational. All involved are fully satisfied with the result.

David Strupp, Sales Design Engineer for WH Platts, stated, “Our research team looked at all available options for networked audio and choose the RedNet system based on its quality, versatility and ability to scale to the scope of this project.”

Ralph Goldheim, Focusrite Director of U.S. Sales, stated, “We are extremely pleased that such a prestigious firm as WH Platts has chosen to employ our RedNet system for their client’s major production facility in Atlanta, based on extensive evaluation of RedNet’s reliability and performance. We look forward to working with them in the future – providing them the Focusrite products and support they need.”

Rednet is Focusrite’s flagship range of Ethernet-networked studio interfaces, based around the tried and tested Dante Gigabit Ethernet audio networking system. Focusrite’s RedNet is the first to offer IP network audio interfaces for the recording studio – or any application that requires moving high-quality audio around with ultra-low latency. The RedNet system is available now from RedNet Certified Dealers. To discover more about RedNet, head to www.focusrite.com/rednet, where users can sign up to receive regular RedNet updates.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, JUNE 4, 2013 – Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments and currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, offers its new ProGO™ Stand-Mounted Absorbers.

Auralex’s new ProGO baffle is a portable, lightweight and highly efficient absorber that’s effective on stage, in the classroom, in home theaters, in hi-fi listening spaces, in the studio and more. ProGO is short for Professional Gobo (a gobo is a freestanding acoustical treatment device usually used in studios), but clients shouldn’t let the name limit their thinking about this highly adaptable device. This portable absorber consists of a custom, two-sided ProPanel™ assembly fitted into a custom black melamine-laminated base that can be outfitted with optional casters for increased portability.

The ProGO, available in 2′x6′x8″ or 4′x4′x8″ configurations, rests in the included floorstand and is easily moved to accommodate any setup. It’s perfect for controlling early reflections and is also highly effective as a bass trap when stood across a room’s corners. The ProGO is an ideal solution for any space where boundary-mounted acoustical treatments might not be desirable.

The ProGO can be used to minimize sound leakage between instruments, amps and vocalists during recording sessions or live performances while retaining line of sight with performers. Users will be able to dial in just the right amount of room ambience by varying the position and number of ProGOs, and can quickly put together an enclosed booth within a larger space by utilizing multiple ProGOs in an array. Contractors and system integrators involved in the house-of-worship market will find ProGOs particularly useful for clients working with multiple worship and music styles.

Features:

Portable absorption treatment
Reduces excessive reverberation
Minimize sound leakage
ProGO is expandable for a wide variety of applications
Available in 12 Fabric colors to match any décor.

ProGO Absorbers are now available in both 2′ x 6′ and 4′ x 4′ models with optional casters. For more information, please visit www.auralex.com.

He later joined World Media Group as mastering engineer, then Plant Manager and VP of Operations. Starting in 2001, he served as studio manager and marketing director for The Lodge Recording Studios. In the spring of 2011 he decided to return to college to earn an associate degree in IT/Networking, which he completed in late 2012.

“I have known Andy and Dave for several decades, and I can attest to their status as experts in the audio industry, as well as being great friends,” stated Eric Smith. “We are excited to be working with them moving forward. On the same hand, Mark is an experienced business and management professional, and he and I have become close allies since before his appointment.
