Auralex MudGuard: Keeping Your Recording Clean And Prestine One Vocal At A Time
What makes a great vocal recording? Is it the mic or the person singing? Is it the method of recording or the software, or is it the recording engineer? Well, it’s probably a combination of all of these factors that contribute to a beautiful vocal recording. Sometimes we take for granted the little things involved that make a big difference in the final product, one of which is the environment in which the vocal is directly recorded. We know that we need a mic, quality cables, and a way to isolate the sound in order to capture the true essence of the vocal, preferably in a vocal booth. But let’s turn it up a notch.
Introducing the Auralex MudGuard. This is easily mounted directly on the mic stand and provides further isolation of the vocal performance by creating a curved mini shell around the mic. This eliminates noise bleed that may otherwise reflect from behind the mic and it allows complete isolation of the vocal directly to the mic. You can use this with great result even if you don’t have a designated vocal booth. It is armed with the same award winning Auralex Studiofoam that you see in every professional studio. We gave it a spin on the Unique Mobile Studio for my mixtape. Check out the video and witness the strength.
