Acoustics First® at ASA Victoria 2018

Fall is always a busy time of year here at Acoustics First®. Besides the AES, our folks have also been making the rounds with the ASTM and the ASA.  The ASA in Canada was particularly interesting, with much discussion about the use of computer modeling to predict the acoustic performance of sound diffusers. Our own Jim DeGrandis co-authored a paper with Dr. Hassan Azad and Ronald Sauro of NWAA Labs on using laboratory measurements to improve acoustic simulations.

The ASA also just released a promotional video for their meetings.

If you look closely, you can spot Jim 0:43 seconds into this short video from the ASA. Of course he’s instantly recognizable by his trademark hat!

(Bonus: Dr. Azad shows up @ 2:09!)

AES 2017 – Thanks from Acoustics First

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.

Thanks again!

Enjoy the spinners!

You don’t always hear what you see…

Acoustics First ArticleRecent Acoustics First article on PUPN!

Sometimes you enter a space that sounds amazing and wonder what treatments are being used.  Many times the treatments are behind the curtain… both figuratively and in reality.

 

Learn about some of the ways acoustic treatments are hidden in plain sight, obscured from view, camouflaged, or just displayed proudly – Nick Colleran points out the not so obvious.

You just might find – you get what you need.
