the vault
vault isolation cabinet v1.0, Ⓒ 2015, j.banner

Sound leaks everywhere. In a small recording studio this can be a big problem. The vault can help.

This cut-away view shows the concept- a box within a box, isolated and floating in a bed of sound-energy absorbing material.

With a guitar amp and microphone inside, a guitarist can play it loud and still co-exist with the vocalist.

Plus, it looks like a caveman did it.

I loaned out the studio when a band needed a place to rehearse for a tour. I was delighted to find that they'd left me this poster as a gift.

A time-honored way to control sound in the recording studio are the baffles known as gobos. If a sound source is too big to fit in the vault (say, like a drummer) you put a couple of these up around it.

Shown here is a gobo with a built-in camera and display, so everyone can see what's happening on the other side.
