Thanks to everyone who flooded our booth at the 2017 AES/NAB show last week at the Javits Convention Center in NY! We enjoyed all the enthusiasm of the attendees, and all of the conversations about projects, products, and acoustics!
If you kept your AES Dailies, you may have seen Jim and the Art Diffusor® Model D on Page 4 of the 2nd edition.
Enjoy the spinners!
(Note: Fidget Spinners are not an acoustic device… technically)

Be sure to stop and see Acoustics First® at the AES/NAB at the Javitz Center in New York, October 18-20, 2017! We are booth number 553 – Next to the “Mix with the Masters” and the “Mixer – Lounge and Bar” area.
You can’t beat Autumn in New York! See you at the show!
Acoustics First® has long been at the forefront of many exciting developments in the world of sound diffusion. In the spring of 2015, we created a method to evaluate sound diffusers using particle computer simulations. Then we utilized 3D printing technology to streamline the development of new diffuser prototypes. Recently, we received a patent for our innovative Art Diffusor® Model D design. Now we’re excited to announce the release of a new comprehensive data booklet for our entire line of sound diffusers!
In essence, this booklet represents an entirely new way to view and compare sound diffusers. “With technological advances accelerating at a staggering rate, we believed it would be advantageous to compile all of the measurable acoustic parameters of these devices, in order to develop an operating profile for each.” Since sound absorption and sound reflection can both be measured with great accuracy, we foresee a use for this data, or similar data, in virtual acoustic room modeling, along with other useful applications.
Contact us for your own print copy of the Acoustics First Diffuser Data booklet (or click here to download the PDF). The electronic data that was used to create the polar diffusion balloons is also available per request (Data compiled for Acoustics First by NWAA Labs in Elma, WA).
Currently, we are working closely with other members of the industry in an effort to develop a universally accepted standard for testing sound diffusion. In the absence of such a standard, Acoustics First is presenting this data in good faith as we believe it represents the best of what is currently available.
We look forward to sharing more advances in the field of sound diffusion!
As the summer of 2015 winds down, we here at Acoustics First thought we’d share our latest acquisition with our readers.
Meet the Gigabot™
(or as we call him “Gigglebot”).
This amazing large format 3D printer was developed by re:3D, an outstanding company whose principals come from varied backgrounds which include experience working at NASA, among other things.
The eight cubic foot build volume of this beast makes it ideal for the rapid development and prototyping of our industry leading sound diffusers! We look forward to using this wonderful device on many projects in the years to come.
Watch this short video we made during one of our trial runs. For this calibration test we chose to print a scaled down version of our patented Model D Art Diffusor®.
Who said manufacturing was boring?!?!

We are proud to announce that the Art Diffusor® Model D has been awarded the PUPN Dean’s List Gold Award for 2014!
While the Model D is one of our newest diffuser designs, it is also one of our most recognizable products and has heard the praises sung from video and audio recording and broadcast studios, editing and mastering suites, theaters and listening rooms, music rooms and practice spaces, schools and even acoustic testing labs!
