Weekly Rewind 2017: WK 21

This Edition Of The Weekly Rewind Covers The Twenty First Week Of 2017.

May 21st through May 27th.

Actually, it covers a good portion of May 2017.

I took a few weeks off of this here Weekly Rewind to work on a studio project. Not an audio production, but building some Broadband Traps, 6 in total. This is not the place for an explanation of what a Broadband Trap is or does. I highly recommend, if you are at all interested in audio quality, that you look at the link I just shared.

Broadband Trap prototype

This is what one of the finished ones looks like.

Measuring roughly 2′ x 4′ x 3 3/4″, it has a Redfir frame and Cedar grill. The cloth portion is Muslin, and directly behind it is the most important part. A two inch thick chunk of a product called Stone Wool or Rock Wool.

Specifically, it’s THIS product from Roxul, called AFB, Acoustical Fire Batts. These aren’t nearly as scary as Unfaced Batts, Batts flying around without faces. Those kind of Batts are the thing nightmares are made of. These Batts are for superior acoustics.

I just started the editing process for a DIY video, as I wanted to share this project with you, and I want to inspire those of you that wanted to make some of your own. Stay tuned for that, I have to distill about 8 hours of video into something easy to digest.

I’ll put it this way, If a Plumber from Northern Idaho can figure this out, so can you. Please don’t accuse me of being smart. The only difference between you and I, if you aren’t familiar with Acoustics, is the time I have invested in Self Learning on the subject.

But, you aren’t here for Acoustics,

you are here for the links.
