Auralex Acoustics is now shipping products from its Carl Tatz Signature Series, developed with Carl Tatz, the award-winning studio designer/acoustician and owner of Carl Tatz Design. Working closely with Carl Tatz, Auralex now offers audio professionals a turnkey acoustical treatment system that emulates the look and performance of Tatz's custom-designed control rooms.
Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics, told us, "We have been honored to work with Carl Tatz, one of the top studio designers in the industry, on this exciting Auralex offering. This series is the perfect combination of Carl's design experience with Auralex's expertise and commitment to providing high-quality and innovative acoustical products. Now virtually any room can benefit from the same aesthetic and sound control enjoyed by top hit makers worldwide."
Carl Tatz added, "I am excited to have had the opportunity to partner with Auralex on this series of high-end acoustical products. When you think of acoustical treatment, you think of Auralex, and I am glad we are able to offer the market a turnkey solution that can improve any acoustic environment."
Here's the full details in Auralex's own words:
Tatz and Auralex's R&D department co-developed the series, which is a collection of fabric-wrapped fiberglass acoustic panels hand-selected by Tatz. Designed for the high-end personal or commercial control room, the new series consists of six custom-built panels available in 32 color options and combines Tatz's expertise with Auralex's well-established manufacturing and distribution chains to bring this new line to the masses. Tatz, a Nashville, Tennessee-based acoustician and former recording studio owner who received a Grammy® nomination for his production of Jack Jones' Tribute to Tony Bennett LP, is a renowned figure in the audio industry with extensive experience in studio design and acoustics.
The series has proven to be a hit since its introduction in 2012. Tatz recently helped design Multi-Platinum, Grammy Award–winning engineer/producer Bob Bullock's new personal mix room in Nashville, featuring a Carl Tatz Design PhantomFocus™ System monitor tuning protocol, as well as Auralex Carl Tatz Signature Series acoustical treatment. The series has also recently been employed for the renovation of Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) Studios D and E control rooms, as well as GO Media in Olympia, Washington, Avid's premiere Pacific Northwest Pro School Training Center and most recently, a 2012 TEC Award™ nomination for his studio design of the MontAnna Mix Room.
These custom-built panels are available in 32 rich fabrics to complement any decor or to create a completely unique look. Auralex's Carl Tatz Signature Series includes:
CTD Attenuation Cloud - Consists of two or more 2'x4'x2" decorative, fabric-wrapped Class A absorptive fiberglass CTD ProPanels™ mounted together. The Cloud is specifically designed to be hung over the mix position for an improved soundstage and can be configured in 4'x4', 4'x6', 4'x8' and 6'x8' sizes depending upon room size and application.
CTD Corner Trap - 2'x4'x2" CTD ProPanels™ with beveled edges and proprietary mounting hardware are used to bridge across the corners of the room to provide low-frequency control.
CTD Acoustic Lens - Designed for side-wall applications, the 5'x4"x8" or 5'x2"x8" lens columns feature both absorptive and redirective facets that provide low- and mid-band frequency absorption, enhancing aural spatiality while controlling reflections to the right and left sides of the mix position.
CTD Soffit Trap - 2"x4'x2' CTD ProPanels™ with beveled edges and proprietary mounting hardware are used to bridge across the ceiling/wall corners of the room to provide low-frequency control, complementing the Acoustic Lens™ and achieving a harmonized aesthetic with the system's panel design.
CTD ProPanel - This 2'x4'x2" fabric-wrapped Class A absorptive fiberglass ProPanel™ is effective at controlling critical mid- and high-band frequencies, but with optional mounting methodology can also offer increased low-frequency control. Useful for both walls and ceilings.
CTD Rear Wall ProPanel - This extra-thick 4'x2'x4" panel is installed on the rear wall to improve low-frequency absorption throughout the room and to control front-to-back axial mode anomalies that would otherwise degrade accuracy at the mix position.
