  • What do Wave Traps™ do?

  • How do Wave Traps™ work?

    Sound waves are created when sound excites and pressurizes air.  These waves bounce off room surfaces and return to you or your microphone in multiple layers. This creates a false and undesirable recording and mixing environment. This impedes an artist’s ability to produce an accurate and professional sounding recording.


    Wave Traps™ work by absorbing and diffusing these sound waves thus reducing their energy and stopping them from bouncing around and layering.  Wave Traps™ differ from typical acoustical products because they cover a broadband of frequencies and use a unique cylindrical design. This compact cylindrical design is incredibly effective due to its specific recipe of materials and proprietary design. The Original Waveforms, Wave Traps™ bring you the most acoustically effective room treatment on the market.
