"The bass response has smoothed out measurably and audibly and there's not a bass note out of place!"
REVIEW BY BOB KATZ
The acoustics of my mastering room have been in continuous "development" since 1996. If I can find an improvement that makes the sound more linear, natural, dynamic and musical, I'm all for it. Last week I got a new listening couch and the sound became a bit too bright. But this was not caused by a change in absorption; I had to restore the tonal balance by simply raising the new couch two inches to put the listener's ears back on the mid-axis of the Lipinski loudspeakers. So the room is in continuous development. The sound quality and frequency response linearity is now an A+, thanks to the addition of some RealTraps MondoTraps.
Prior to the addition of the MondoTraps, I only had some acoustic
treatment to control flutter echo as well as spending much time on careful placement of
the subwoofers using time-domain analysis, and using tricks with the phase control of the
subwoofer to cancel a slight bass hump due to the room geometry. But eventually I reached
the limit of that approach and I sought out other ways to further smooth the bass
response. That's where RealTraps come in,
specifically the MondoTraps from RealTraps.
