The ASC AttackWall is the perfect acoustic alternative to spending $100k on construction and special materials. You have your system, have started production and your mixes are taking shape, how your studio “sounds” and how your mixes translate become your next concern. If there were just someway to get the “world class” studio sound that you need but keep the costs reasonable... The AttackWall provides a world class mixing environment. It functions very differently than treating a room with “room acoustics”. The result is crystal clear imaging, clarity and an experience that can only be described as good as "on the sound stage". The result is saving time and money in both the mixing and the mastering of your project!
The system is completely modular, allowing you to “start small” and expand as the budget permits. AttackWall is portable and repeatable. You can take your system to the next session or your next studio. Each StudioTrap combines diffusion and trapping across the broad band of frequencies of voice and music. Placement and tuning is simple and intuitive with just a little bit of guidance from our technicians. RSPE Audio has 2 AttackWall systems, please contact one of our sales engineers to arrange for a demonstration.
The AttackWall wraps around the workstation and engineer so neatly that very little sound escapes outside of the Wall. Broad-band early reflections are controlled by the StudioTraps' absorptive sides, creating a reflection free zone (RFZ) right at the mix position, regardless of the room size. The diffusive sides of all StudioTraps (the side with the silver button) should face away from the mix position to create a true RFZ.
Time-Delayed Ambient Backfill
The AttackWall absorbs image-smearing early reflections, but lets others escape to provide time-delayed backfill. Without an ambient tail to the energy-time-curve, a reflection-free recording studio would be exhausting to work in. The ambience is provided by the diffusive sides of the StudioTraps, which scatter sound at 500 Hz and higher.
Vertical Mode Control
Studio monitors are nested between MonitorStand Tops and Bases, which are specially built TubeTraps, designed for rapid absorption of expanding wavefronts and strength to support heavy speakers. The MonitorStands upset the vertical symmetry in the room. The lower trap aggressively absorbs bass before and after the floor bounce. The upper trap also absorbs, but in addition, it vents bass into the low-pressure area outside the AttackWall, where the energy is dissipated and absorbed by nearby StudioTraps.
Wall Loaded Mains
The AttackWall loads bass just like the built-in mains found in a downtown studio. StudioTraps fit tight to the sides of the speaker to create a corner-loading short horn. This increases the efficiency of the speaker and projects the bass. With the absorptive side of the StudioTraps facing the mix position, there is no "horn coloration" added to the direct signal. The AttackWall setup results in a bass loading horn that is lined with treble range absorption.
