OVERVIEW

Record vocals, guitars, and more with a 'drier' sound without an acoustically treated room.

The Reflexion Filter 3.5 is a portable device for recording live sound sources with reduced room ambiance. 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.

The Reflexion Filter has 6 main layers. Firstly, a strong layer of punched aluminum which allows sound waves to pass through it, diffused, to a layer of absorptive wool. The sound waves then hit a layer of Aluminum foil which helps dissipate energy and break up the lower frequency waveforms, and from here they 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 an outer, punched, aluminum wall which further serve to absorb then diffuse the remaining acoustic energy.

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 is composed of 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.

The various layers both absorb and diffuse the sound waves hitting them, so progressively less of the original source acoustic energy passes through each layer. This reduces the amount of energy hitting untreated walls and other surfaces so there is less of the original source reflected back as unwanted room ambience to the mic. The Reflexion Filter also helps prevent any reflected sound reaching the back and sides of the mic. Its shape and size have been carefully tested to maximize absorption while keeping 'coloration' down to only around 1dB, and leaving the microphone's polar pattern unaffected.

I purchased the Reflexion Filter to reduce the unwanted reverb effect we were experiencing in our study. The study is not sound treated, so anything I could get from the Reflexion would have been great. I'll tell you what, it made our jaws hit the floor. The vocals coming through our AKG C 414 B-XL II were absolutely incredible. For the most part, perfectly dry. You need to follow the instructions on mic placement within the Reflexion carefully, but it is not all hard to set up. Did require a weighted mic stand...but hey, all well worth the cost! I'd buy another in a heart beat!

It is a simple product, with a difficult set up,
and kind of gives you a pain if your new to Reflexion filters, but with time you can set it up nice and start recording, now with this filter it only blocks out the back of the microphone, so it does half of the work for you, but you have to figure out the other half for yourself, not really worth the money, I would say this costs about 150.

Heavy

Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

It certainly does what it's supposed to but I would pay more for one made of some alloy that's not 50 lbs! Do not assume that you can put this thing on a simple mic stand, you need something that's cemented into your floor so it doesn't topple over and ruin your mic.

Amazing!!

By Mike Moore-vipsN

from Inkster, MI

Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

This product is amazing, you can REALLY tell the difference. I solved the weight issue by putting the mic holder in upside down and then flipping the arm over past the mic stand thus moving the center of gravity closer to the stand.

Works great, heavy

By Jeff-caT-u

Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

Does exactly what you'd assume it would do. Great for vocals. I upgraded my stand, because I read it was rather heavy, and still needed to support the base with two dumbbells. It's going to make your stand top-heavy to one side, so just be prepared for that. Definitely worth purchasing barring that minor inconvenience, though.

Great addition to studio

By Dan2Deg

Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

This is really great addition to my studio. Allowing me to use an area of studio that is untreated for recording. As has been said previously, is heavy. I use a tripod stand, which works well. It does tilt easily from side to side, but very workable. Would buy again. Great sound.

Now I have a vocal booth

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

Just got it a few days ago and I am very pleased to say the least.. Not using it on all the songs cause I already have a treated room and the vocals I've recorded still sound good but with this they definitely sound better so using it on the rest of the songs. very cool product if you have the money get it.

Satisfied

By Melodyman-ivr-M

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

I recently purchased the sE Electronics Reflexion Filter, and I'm very happy with the sharper difference I'm getting from my vocal recordings, even I have to purchase a more sturdy mic-stand, but that's ok. I do wish that the sE Electronics Reflexion Filter can with its own stand, that wouild hit the floor, and be in front of the mic-stand, but again I'm very satisfied with what I'm hearing from my vocal recordings.....

    Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO:

    This product does a good job of killing the sound that would otherwise be present behind the mic. However it does nothing for ambient sounds arriving at other areas of the mic (nor could it). If used in a loud environment (e.g. a single space with drums and other instruments) it will be completely ineffective at limiting the amount of bleed from those other instruments. This is not a mic isolation tool. It should be used, after the mic is isolated, to control acoustic reflections from the nearby surfaces
