Reflexion Filter PRO is the original portable acoustic treatment solution.
Designed to be used when you need to record in a space with ‘less-than-desirable’ characteristics, Reflexion Filter Pro stops room reflections from being recorded by the microphone.
The result is an intimate, clean vocal sound, to which you can add controlled reverb in the mixdown process.
What does it take to achieve this? The trick is to balance the absorption evenly across ALL frequencies, and that requires multiple layers of material.
The RF Pro consists of nine layers of sE's patented multi-layer technology, and is constructed by hand in sE's factory:
1. Punched Aluminium Diffuser
2. Acoustic-Grade Wool Absorber
3. Tensioned Aluminium Foil Membrane Diffuser
4. Isolating Air Gap
5. Tensioned Aluminium Foil Membrane Diffuser
6. Acoustic-Grade Wool Absorber
7. Polycarbonate Diffuser
8. Asymmetric Isolating Air Gaps
9. Patented Polyester Acoustic Fibreboard
How do sE Electronics Reflexion Filters work?
When you put a microphone in front of you, it doesn't just hear you - it hears the room around you.
Even if it's a cardioid mic and is listening mostly to just you, it's still picking up reflections from your voice or instrument that are bouncing off the walls and coming back to the mic. The goal of acoustic treatment is to minimise the pickup of such reflections so your primary sound source comes through as pure as possible.
So why not just put some cardboard or foam behind the mic?
Some materials are good at absorbing or reflecting particular frequencies - for example, foam absorbs highs really well, but does nothing for lows.
sE's patented multi-layer technologies absorb frequencies evenly across the whole frequency spectrum.
This is what makes the Reflexion Filter™ unique, and makes it the choice of the biggest recording artists in the world - whether they're working in untreated rooms, or working in a professionally-designed studio and just need a little more isolation.
