The sE Electronics Reflexion Filter Pro is a portable device for recording live sound sources with reduced room ambience. It is an advanced composite wall which is positioned behind any microphone by means of a variable position stand clamp assembly which ships with the product. The main function is to help obtain a 'dry' vocal or instrument recording.
This is especially useful in studios without proper acoustic treatment, but can also be used to help record takes in control rooms where the performer also has to operate the recording device or in rehearsal studios to reduce ambient noise.
Reflexion Filter Pro Design
The feature that sets the Reflexion Filter Pro apart fromt the rest is its nine layer patented multi-layer air gap technology. The outer shell is a strong layer of punched Aluminium which allows sound waves to pass through it, diffused, to a layer of absorptive wool.
The sound waves then hit a layer of Aluminium foil which helps dissipate energy and break up the lower frequency wave-forms. From here the sound waves hit an air space kept open by rods passing through the various layers. The air gap acts as an acoustic barrier. The sound waves then pass to a further layer of wool and then through further air gaps before the segmented polyester fibreboard panels come into play.
The main absorber has 4 formed pieces of state-of-the-art specialist acoustic absorptive material attached to its face via the extended separation rods, which further serve to absorb and then diffuse the sound waves as they pass to the main filter.
The stand assembly comprises a mic stand clamp fitting, which attaches by means of a vertical joint to the horizontal bar assembly onto which both the Reflexion Filter, and any standard fitting shock mount can be fixed. The microphone (in its shock mount) can then be moved both vertically and horizontally along the bar, and the Reflexion Filter itself can be moved vertically to obtain the optimum working position.
