The Pro Audio Suite

According to Wikipedia, Room modes are the collection of resonances that exist in a room when the room is excited by an acoustic source such as a loudspeaker. These resonances affect the low-frequency low-mid-frequency response of a sound system in the room and are one of the biggest obstacles to accurate sound reproduction.

The Pro Audio Suite

Microphone placement is critically important to acoustic quality during live performances and recordings. Microphone placement alone contributes to around 20% of the overall sound while the person, instrument, setting, and microphone choice contributes to around 50%, 20%, and 10% of the overall sound respectively.

More than a USB microphone, Revelator features compressors and EQs modelled on world-class analogue processors.

We wring our hands and tap our fingers when it comes to making a decision on the Mic we are about to spend a large chunk of cash on for our studio. But when it comes to the Mic Pre, we sometimes don't spend as much time procrastinating.

When you talk about pedigree, Des Decean is the antipathies when it comes to building Radio studios...

Des is one of Australia’s most qualified and respected engineers. He has been instrumental in the introduction and launch of Digital Radio in Australia, and back in 1980, Des was the very first employee of Austereo when commercial FM radio was first launched in Australia.

As chief engineer, Des built SA FM in Adelaide into one of Australia’s first FM stations. He was a member of the Acquisition Team when Austereo acquired Fox, B105, 2DAY FM and the Triple M network. With the merger of the Triple M and Austereo networks, Des project managed the simultaneous relocation of Triple M Adelaide, Triple M  Melbourne and 2DAY FM Sydney studios.

In 1988, Des was appointed to the first Ministerial Committee on Digital Radio as the representative for Commercial Radio Australia and he was inducted into the Australian Radio Hall of Fame in 2009.

So when we wanted to do a show on Room ratios, and building challenging rooms in general, where did we turn? Where else...
