THE NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 23, 2014 – Auralex® Acoustics, Inc. (booth 7424), the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments, is exhibiting its ProPAD™ and ProPAD-XL™ Monitor Isolation Pads from its ISO (Instant Sound Optimizer) line.
The ProPAD is a premium-performance variant on Auralex’s popular MoPAD™. The ProPAD features a durable, three layer highly damped construction with increased durability and structural integrity, and provides superior isolation from the vibrations and resonant energy created by studio monitors. The ProPAD prevents this energy from being transmitted into the supporting furniture, which would greatly color the monitors’ sound and degrade their imaging. The ProPAD is sold in stereo pairs and is designed to work with monitors employing up to 8" woofers. ProPAD’s updated design features a 0.75" layer of Melamine-wrapped MDF covered with a thick layer of Auralex’s proprietary IsoPuck™ isolation material, which is made of recycled rubber. Angle wedges are supplied with both models for flat or angled applications. The ProPAD is the perfect solution for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibration in all manner of sound-critical spaces, including recording studios, post-production/edit suites, mobile recording facilities, hi-fi listening rooms, home theaters or anywhere a monitor/speaker isolation platform is needed to improve sonic purity.
The ProPAD-XL speaker isolation product is a larger version of the award-winning ProPAD. The XL version is designed to work with horizontally oriented, twin woofer monitors and provides the same isolation qualities found in the popular ProPAD. ProPAD-XL is the perfect solution for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibration from larger format monitor speakers.
ProPADs and ProPAD-XLs are currently in use at House of Blues Studios and Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville and with numerous producers/engineers including F. Reid Shippen, Peter Moshay, Russ Long, Michael Lattanzi, Shane Wilson, Glenn Rosenstein and David Thoener.
Nashville-based engineer/producer Russ Long (Wilco, Dolly Parton, Steven Curtis Chapman) stated, “After making records in my studio for nearly 20 years, I added ProPADs to my configuration and my monitoring became more accurate than ever.”
Producer/mixer engineer Glenn Rosenstein (Madonna, U2, Talking Heads, Ziggy Marley) noted, “The Auralex ProPADs are unlike any other professional monitor isolators I’ve used. No harmonic Resonance... and no sonic artifacts!”
