As a private music production teacher I love hearing about new concepts and ideas that change the way we think about music production, and this one blew my mind. I first heard about Dleta H Design through Lynda.com an education company featuring online video tutorials. I learned about acoustics in a more traditional way making use of absorbers, diffusers, and bass traps, all the old favourites. Although I haven’t tried any of the products from Delta H Design myself I’m truly amazed by the work this company is doing.
As much as I’d love to explain these products, you really have to visit the company’s website to get a detailed view of what they’re achieving. Most of us working in our home studios are dealing with foam panels attached to the walls, ceilings, or both, and bass traps in the corners as an attempt to deal with our studio’s odd frequency responses. ZR products from Delta H Design are as far from foam panels as you can get, they’re more like modern art. This company has done something that’s truly amazing, they’ve made studio acoustic treatment artistic. They have several different products, ZR micro technology, sample rate technology, hybrid technology, prefab technology, SMD packages ready made designs, Nomad technology, and studio in a box.
I’m not even going to try and explain these products or what they do, it’s truly much better to head over to their website and see the photos of their products in use. I can imagine these light weight low profile products are ideal for home studios, and they are not unreasonably priced. While this may not be a financially struggling students go-to option, the price is affordable for those more established home studio enthusiasts. Especially because according to the interview on Lynda.com even a few panels would make a noticeable difference in the way your studio sounds.
