Auralex Acoustics was founded back in 1977, born out of the simple fact that President Eric Smith sensed that the acoustical products available at the time were priced beyond big-budget professional broadcast and recording facilities, never mind the more meagre means of garage-based bands.
Today the cost and size of professional recording equipment has dramatically decreased during the last decade, so producing professional recordings at home has never been easier or more widespread. While this is good news for anyone with professional-sounding recording aspirations, residential properties remain notoriously inaccurate acoustical environments if left untreated — which is exactly why Auralex is perfectly positioned to step into the breach.
By offering a wide range of sensibly-priced products designed to solve almost any acoustical problem — regardless of room size, shape, or function, Auralex can help anyone make their recording or monitoring environment truly fit for purpose — purpose being the sound that is captured, crafted, and monitored must be as accurate as possible. After all, any aural decisions made by engineers and producers should translate to the rest of the world without any sonic surprises!
Surprisingly, the Real-World Acoustics™-practicing Indianapolis, Indiana-headquartered company even goes as far as offering personalised room analysis services ranging from filling out a free digital form — to provide room layout information and receive a suggested plan of acoustic treatment and placement — to recording a frequency sweep in your room and sending the WAV file back to Auralex to obtain problem-solving frequency response and impulse data.
Even easier, Auralex offers four Roominators™ Complete Acoustical Sound Control Systems, each with a selection of acoustical products to tame the sound control problems typically experienced in commonly-sized rooms. Recording environments have certainly come a long way since 1977!
