Hi Mikron,

Yes the anechoic chamber was used - old SABC building.. There are several thousand readings taken from Pro Tools and typed into a spreadsheet so it's all taking longer than expected. As soon as it's wrapped up I'l post a link here :)

Do you have some preliminary results to share?

It'd just be nice to hear the room acoustics in a rehersal space like with The CliffCentral one. If it works for your target market: great...but it doesn't showcase your product.

Product demos from some of the reputable acoustics companies showcase the effect of the product clearly.

Agreed - but few bands of that caliber would agree to that as they almost always lip sync their live shows.. Time is also a big factor - the guys are on tight schedules with one band member having to fly in specially from Durban. The band is moving into a new studio soon which we'll be treating for them. I'd like to then ask their lead singer to maybe do an acoustic version of a song for us so we can better show off the rooms acoustics post treatment... Whether he'd be agreeable though waits to be seen.. Anyway, we have some other bands like Monark we're trying to work with now as well.

Just vocals would skew the perception, but would be good for promoting your product. Could you play back some music in a treated room perhaps where there is a full range of frequencies present?

You could always send me a wav file of an impulse response of a room you've treated and I could plot some data off it?

Doesn't this thread jack belong in vendors faire?

Ethan Winer's company, Real Traps, have some good marketing videos demonstrating their acoustic treatment products and related concepts that can be viewed at the following link - http://realtraps.com/videos.htm. Beware, cheesy intro music to the videos, but don't let that fool you - Ethan is a reputable authority in the audio engineering field.

Ethan Winer fan over here btw!

Sure I would - I invite everyone's professional opinion, hence the post, and continue to do so.
