Leading Artists, Engineers and Producers Choose Auralex® ProPAD™ Monitor Isolation Pad

— ProPAD™ is designed for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibrations —

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, December 5, 2012 – Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments and currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, is proud that its ProPAD™ Monitor Isolation Pad, the latest product in its ISO (Instant Sound Optimizer) line, has been chosen by leading artists, engineers and producers as a vital piece of their recording setup. ProPAD provides superior isolation from the vibrations and resonant energy created by studio monitors, preventing this energy from being transmitted into the supporting furniture, which would greatly color the monitors’ sound and degrade their imaging.

Guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Adrian Belew is noted for his work with Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads and King Crimson, as well as his acclaimed solo career. He is blown away by the difference the ProPADs make in his monitor setup. “Once you listen to your monitors on the Auralex ProPADs, you won’t want to hear them any other way. They’re the best I’ve heard,” he states.

Producer/engineer Russ Long, whose credits include Wilco, Dolly Parton, Steven Curtis Chapman, etc., is also impressed by the contrast between his monitors with and without ProPADs: “After making records in my studio for nearly 20 years, I added ProPADs to my configuration, and my monitoring became more accurate than ever.”

Mixer/engineer/producer Peter Moshay has worked with such acts as Hall & Oates, Mariah Carey and Sean Lennon, and currently he serves as house engineer for Daryl Hall’s Live at Daryl’s House program. He states, “I never thought my monitors could sound better until I tried ProPADs. I’ll never be without them.”

Producer/mixer/engineer/songwriter Glenn Rosenstein’s CV features many of music history’s heavy hitters: Madonna, U2, Talking Heads, Ziggy Marley, etc. He adds, “The Auralex ProPADs are unlike any other professional monitor isolators I’ve used. No harmonic resonance … and no sonic artifacts!”

Paul Umbach’s tenure in the pop world has led him to a stint as a key producer at Jive Records, where he worked with superstars Britney Spears and ‘N Sync, to name a few. He has also collaborated with acclaimed singer-songwriter Matt White. He is similarly impressed with his ProPADs: “The new Auralex ProPADs are amazing. It’s like somebody pressed the clarity button.”

The ProPAD is sold in stereo pairs and is designed to work with nearfield monitors employing up to 8″ woofers. ProPAD’s updated design features a 0.75″ layer of laminated black MDF covered with a thick layer of Auralex’s proprietary IsoPuck™ isolation material, which is made of recycled rubber. Six stick-on feet, also made from IsoPuck material, are supplied for flat or angled applications. The ProPAD is the perfect solution for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibration in all manner of sound-critical spaces, including recording studios, post-production/edit suites, mobile recording facilities, hi-fi listening rooms, home theaters or anywhere a monitor/speaker isolation platform is needed to improve sonic purity.
