AURALEX ACOUSTICS HELPS SOUNDCHECK REPUBLIC

EAST GREENBUSH, NY, MARCH 1, 2012 – When Seth Powell, owner and engineer of SoundCheck Republic Recording Studio, enlisted the services of Dominick Campana, owner of Pro Sound Associates, to partner with him on the design of his newly relocated facility, Campana turned to Auralex Acoustics, the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, for the studio’s sound treatment needs.

A range of Auralex products were utilized, both in the construction phase as well as for post-construction wall treatments. To ensure maximum isolation, Auralex’s SheetBlok™ Sound Isolation Barrier, RC-8™ Resilient Channel and U-Boat™ Floor Floaters were installed. Wall treatments include Auralex’s WavePrism™ and QuadraTec™ bamboo diffusors, along with the company’s environmentally friendly four-inch Studiofoam® Metro™ acoustic foam.

As the studio is located on the second floor of a large historic home in a residential area, sound isolation was key for the SoundCheck Republic project. In order to provide a space that was acoustically accurate, the room was completely gutted. The room was then redesigned to ensure the flow and wall configurations were correct. The main isolation component was Auralex’s SheetBlok. Made of a dense, limp-mass vinyl material, SheetBlok is about 6dB more effective than solid lead at stopping the transmission of sound. It acts as a thin, dense sound barrier layer in walls, ceilings or floors and is most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme.

“The use of the Auralex SheetBlok made a huge difference in keeping the sound isolated to the studio,” adds Campana. “We pretty much went all out in sealing the room and even created custom inserts for the windows. After installing the SheetBlok, we had a full rock band practice in the studio and it measured 124 DB inside the room and there was absolutely no sound outside. The materials just worked awesome and Seth is very pleased.”

In order to make sure the walls were separated from the actual structure, Auralex’s RC-8™ 24′ x 8′ resilient channels were used. On the floor, Auralex’s U-Boats™ were used to support the framing, and isolate and decouple them from the surrounding structure.

SoundCheck Republic also features Auralex’s WavePrism and QuadraTec diffusors, part of Auralex’s Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series, along with Auralex’s environmentally friendly four-inch StudioFoam Metro throughout the space. The QuadraTec’s unique tiered design provides excellent scattering properties, resulting in a warm, musical character to the dispersed sound. The Auralex WavePrism eliminates flutter echoes and other acoustical anomalies without removing acoustical energy from the space. The differing heights of protrusions of the acoustic Studiofoam Metro products serve to spread sonic energy out in the time domain, as well as each absorbing a slightly different slice of the frequency spectrum

“A predominant feature of the studio is its use of bamboo,” says Campana. “The Auralex bamboo diffusers were the perfect match both aesthetically and acoustically for the project. The use of the diffusers provides the ability to open the space up in a really natural way, resulting in a response associated with much larger rooms.”

Campana was so pleased with the finished product that he plans to use the studio as a showcase, bringing in potential clients to show them studio construction examples and the different uses for the Auralex products and product line.

“Auralex’s ability to provide a wide array of top-of-the-line products that are easy to install make them the obvious choice for me,” adds Campana. “From bass traps and corner traps to regular metro foam and the different types of diffusers, they provide all sorts of options that all can make a bad space sound great. In addition, Auralex’s customer service is consistently excellent and in Charlie Eaton, we have a very good rep in upstate New York.”

SoundCheck Republic’s state-of-the-art facility comes equipped with all of the latest equipment and has been used by such recording artists as Graham Parker, The Figgs and The Charlie Watts Riots.

RTW And HARMAN’S Studer Announce Collaboration at CABSAT 2012

RTW TM7 To Be Integrated Into HARMAN’S Studer Vista Range of Digital Consoles

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, 28 FEBRUARY 2012 – RTW, a leading manufacturer and distributor of professional audio metering and control devices for studio recording and radio and TV broadcast applications, and HARMAN’s Studer, manufacturer of digital mixing consoles for the broadcast, production and live application markets, are jointly announcing at this year’s CABSAT show that the RTW TM7 TouchMonitor will be fully integrated in the Studer Vista range of digital audio consoles.

As a result of this partnership, RTW will provide a special version of the TM7 TouchMonitor touchscreen loudness meter that will be built into the meter bridge of the Vista 9 and Vista 5 M2 consoles. Studer chose the TM7 meter because it perfectly complements Vistonics(tm), the simple and elegant touchscreen user interface that Vista customers know and love.

The TM7 will include custom meter presets offering loudness metering that meets the EBU R 128 and ITU BS1770 standards as well as traditional bargraph and moving needle metering to comply with additional international standards. The TM7 will also be available for retrofitting to all Vista 9 consoles.

“We were thrilled when Studer approached RTW with its desire to introduce loudness metering to all of its Vista consoles,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “RTW has provided traditional meters to Studer for many years and we are happy to now supply its customers with the modern technology necessary to comply with new loudness regulations and improve their services overall.”

The TouchMonitor is RTW’s response to growing demands in modern production, post-production and broadcast environments. With its high-quality 7- or 9-inch touchscreen and intuitive user interface, the TouchMonitor breaks new ground in professional audio analysis for accuracy, performance, efficiency and flexibility.

RTW’s TM7 and the entire TouchMonitor family of loudness metering products will be on display during CABSAT at the QvestMedia stand (S2D3) in Hall Sheikh Saheed 2. The Vista family of products can also be seen during CABSAT at the Studer stand (S3-6) in Hall Sheikh Saeed 3.

COLOGNE, GERMANY, 15 FEBRUARY 2012 – RTW, a leading manufacturer and distributor of professional audio metering and control devices for studio recording and radio and TV broadcast applications, has appointed Daniel Wang Zherun as the company’s new Sales Manager for China and Southeast Asia. Wang Zherun’s top priority will be the establishment of a new representative office in Beijing.

In 2009 and 2010, Daniel Wang Zherun worked as RTW’s business development manager in Beijing, which has provided him with a deep understanding of both the RTW product range and the market environment in China and Southeast Asia. As sales manager, he will now assume additional responsibilities for developing those markets and establishing a more efficient sales infrastructure.

“We are very happy to have Daniel Wang Zherun back on our team,” says Mahmoud Chatah, RTW’s Director of Marketing and Sales. “While the local presence of the RTW brand on the Chinese and Southeast-Asian markets is currently strong, Wang Zherun will continue to expand our options in those markets. The establishment of a representative office in China is a significant advancement for us in that region. RTW has already seen much positive feedback from Asian retailers and users.”

“In the future, RTW’s market-leading metering and monitoring systems will play a much greater role in China’s fast-evolving broadcast market,” adds Wang Zherun. “This is particularly true with regard to the rise of HDTV and the loudness war, which is a widely discussed issue in China, too.”
