SE Electronics Professional Reflexion Filter Portable Vocal Booth
The Professional Reflexion Filter is a ‘portable vocal booth’, a revolution in recording technology. The Reflexion Professional Filter is a portable device for recording live sources with reduced room ambience. It is an advanced composite wall which is positioned behind any microphone by means of a variable position stand clamp assembly which ships with the product. The main function is to help obtain a ‘dry’ vocal or instrument recording. This is especially useful in studios without proper acoustic treatment, but can also be used to help record takes in control rooms, where the performer also has to operate the recorder, or in rehearsal studios to reduce ambient noise. The Reflexion Filter also helps prevent any reflected sound reaching the back and sides of the mic. Its shape and size have been carefully tested to maximize absorption while keeping ‘coloration’ down to only around 1dB, and leaving the microphone’s polar pattern unaffected.
After 3 years and many poor imitations of our now industry standard design, we have gone back to the drawing board to produce what many budget concuss customers have so desired... an entry level Reflexion Filter product which actually does the job properly! Due to patents pending on our original design, competitors who have tried to emulate the success of the original RF Pro have not managed to do so successfully since their designs are limited, and as a result, so are their performances.
The Project Studio RF uses the same basic design as the Pro version, and while it can never be fully as effective as its more expensive big brother, it easily out performs copies and for project studio use is just the job. The metal frame is lined with the same patented polyester fiberboard as the Pro version uses for its outer layer. This material has extremely good acoustic absorption properties; much better than simple foam products. This is then further lined with a high density 'crystal' foam with curved undulations rather the cheaper and less effective ribbed, medium density foams that are widely used by other companies. The result is a product which looks fantastic and 'sounds' even better when recording vocals and acoustic guitars... its not an RF Pro, but it's the best of the rest!
