"I was suspect at first, but after a few minutes with the Recoil Stabilizers I realized how much difference they made. Especially on the low end. I'm keeping these. They work."

London 12 Install ~ Before and After Treatment

Primacoustic Product Review
 

"We have recently installed Primacoustic London 12 kits in four almost identical [NLE editing suites] rooms in the new Gold Coast Institute of TAFE's campus at Coomera. This gave us the opportunity to do a "before and after". Check out these two iPhone videos."

London 12 Room Kit

Primacoustic Product Review
 

"I installed the London 12 kit in the shell of what will be a studio control room (14m2). Basic measurements were made at nine points around the room before and after the installation with slow sine waves sweeps and white noise as well as standard listening tests. The resluts were positive and essentially fulfilled the design criteria for the kit. .. And at this price it's an instant, controllable and worthwhile solution with zero guesswork or fuss."

London 12 Room Kit, Stratus & MaxTrap

Primacoustic Product Review
 

"With Primacoustic [Broadway Panels, Stratus Cloud and MaxTrap bass traps], my audio workspace sounds like I never imagined it could. As a result, my work has never been better or more satisfying. Without a doubt, the Primacoustic system is the most significant pro audio investment I have ever made."

London 10 Room Kit

Primacoustic Product Review
 

 

The panels really made a difference. From the scientific side, I plotted various listening points in the space, taking measurements before and after the installation of the panels. The kit smoothed room response between 80Hz to 500Hz, and from 1.6kHz to 4kHz. The kit also minimized some of the peaks in the room from 4k to 6.3k.

Having optimized my system before the installation of the London 10 kit, I expected to hear only a small improvement in sound quality. I couldn't have been more wrong -- the improvement was huge. Even as James Wright pulled the panels from the box and leaned them against the walls, I could hear the reverberation decreasing -- no music was playing, but as we talked, our voices grew clearer and easier to understand. And when I settled in to watch movies and listen to music, it was clear that the many improvements spanned all facets of sound quality.

KickStand

Primacoustic Product Review
 

"I was able to test the KickStand's isolation perhaps not with total scientific precision, but with enough predictability to find out what I needed to know: This really works. If you're miking kick drums, for about $75 KickStand is a great addition to your toolkit."

FlexiBooth

Primacoustic Product Review
 

"FlexiBooth is an acoustically absorptive vocal booth in "cupboard" form. It is designed to hang on the wall of your audio workspace. Closed, its casing — made of black melamine-coated MDF (medium-density fiberboard) — measures 2 feet wide, 4 feet high, and a bit over 5 inches deep. With both 4 x 1-foot doors open, the FlexiBooth becomes a 16- cubic-foot VO environment."

Recoil Stabilizer

Primacoustic Product Review
 

"Bass is better defined - actually sounding like you've dropped in a high-pass filter that's clearing all the mud below about 40Hz... For me, the most obvious sonic difference was a very noticeable increase in the definition of the mid-range, with a hugely increased depth of field. And these differences aren't slight - it's a very apparent shift in response... they are worth their (considerable) weight in gold."

Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer Review

"In A/B comparisons using a variety of studio near-fields - Mackie HRM8s, Meyer HD-1s and Dynaudio Air6s - the difference was clearly discernible. In every case, the stereo soundstage was improved, as was the reproduction of HF transients. Recoil's secret is nothing more than basic physics: it's all about mass."

Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer Review

"Tests with my Mackie HR624s produced noticeably better stereo imaging than mounting the speakers directly on the shelf surface, and the low end seemed much better controlled. Next to sorting out any basic acoustic problems, mounting your speakers correctly is probably the most important thing you can do to improve your monitoring accuracy, and if you're desk-mounting [console-mounting for us on this side of the pond. - Primacoustic Editor] them, I can't recommend highly enough using some kind of isolation pad. The Recoil Stabilizers are the best I've tried..."

Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer Review

"When the recommended ratios were maintained, bass performance in particular was enhanced—tighter low end with improved clarity on the lower mids and detail in the bass and kick, particularly on the attack. Phantom center was tighter and overall imaging improved. The effect was particularly pronounced on desktop, and less so on a good set of massive speaker stands, but still apparent. At a street price of $99 for the tested RX7 pair, you cannot go wrong—the performance improvement is decidedly more significant than a corresponding increase in your loudspeaker budget."

VoxGuard Portable GoBo

Primacoustic Product Reviews
 

"The resounding view in the control room was that it sounded wonderful, really tight, brighter than version one [sE version - editor] and basically delivering exactly what is says on the box; controls ambient space around the mic, creates an intimate soundfield and delivers a cleaner voice track. I also tested the VoxGuard in my own studio and again it sounded excellent, tight and clean, helping to cut out the background fans from my various hard drives and computers, a common problem in many home and project studios. In conclusion I would say that in my role as producer, often recording vocals in other peoples properties, I would purchase the VoxGuard to guarantee a clean, tight and separated vocal sound. I would recommend the VoxGuard to anyone recording vocals on location or in an acoustically untreated environment."

Primacoustic VoxGuard Review

"Of course, this is by no means a unique invention, several similar products have used the same principle of a mic-stand mounted near-field sound absorber before, but they all tend to fall into the same trap. They're either very expensive, too heavy (which threatens to send your expensive mic toppling to the floor) or simply ineffective. The VoxGuard however, manages to avoid all of these slip ups by striking the perfect balance of sturdyness and lightness, as well as being large enough and thick enough to provide a noticeable 'flatter' sound with vocals in testing."
