Indianopolis, IN–Auralex Acoustics has been featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, where a recent renovation included a home recording studio.
The “Kirkwood Family” episode, which aired last month, featured a young girl with a passion for singing. Auralex helped turn her room into a personal recording studio by providing acoustical treatment for her very own vocal booth.
“The AudioTile product that was featured on the show is part of our new pArtScience product line that blends art and science together,” Tracy Chandler, Auralex’s director of sales and marketing said. “AudioTile absorbs echoes and other unwanted sound reflections which is key to producing high-quality, accurate sound. AudioTile is a designers dream as well, because it is available in the widest variety of custom patterns on the market.”
The tessellated patterns of the AudioTile components allow for a custom-designed look, but also serve a precise acoustical purpose. The patterns consist of thicknesses ranging from one-inch to four-inches. The tessellated patterns absorb echoes and other undesirable reflections through a wide range of frequencies. These patterns also allow for diffusion and reflection, which adds a sense of “liveliness” to the room and allows consistent, accurate sound to reach everyone in the room.
“We were initially contacted by the show because one of their design team members was familiar with one of our products commonly used in professional recording studios,” Chandler said. “After a quick introduction to AudioTile, the designer knew it had the kind of eye-catching, high-end appeal they were looking for.”
Auralex’s Brian Wheat spent two days in Seattle, Washington working on the project for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
“To be involved with a show like Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is a great opportunity for a company like ours to gain exposure with the general public,” Wheat said. “It was an unforgettable experience just to be a part of such an enormous undertaking and such an incredibly generous gesture for a deserving family.”
