REDI Acoustics™, LLC is a company specializing in providing solutions for a range of Acoustical Research and Development Initiatives.
The long-standing impediment to accurately predict the acoustic qualities of small critical listening environments (such as pro audio control rooms, broadcast production suites, home theaters and corporate conference rooms) has been resolved by NIRO™.
Created by acoustic R&D firm REDI Acoustics™, NIRO™ is a groundbreaking wave-based, computer-modeling software tool. REDIacoustics is now offering a gold standard consulting service using this research. NIRO™ facilitates the predictive, iterative analysis required to optimize the acoustic qualities of compact studio control rooms, home theaters, and audiophile listening rooms, and is particularly accurate at low frequency analysis (specifically below Schroeder frequencies).
There are sonic benefits when listening to music indoors. The room introduces a warm reverberation, and the internal reflections create a sense of envelopment or immersion.
However, the room has the potential to introduce different forms of Acoustical Distortion. The distortion is resulting from interfering reflections and poor diffusion, which occur above the transition frequency from wave to geometric acoustics, and room modes, temporal decay, and the Speaker Boundary Interference Response (SBIR) which occur below.
In control rooms, which should be acoustically neutral, this potential distortion jeopardizes the transferability to other listening environments. For example, if the room is bass-heavy, it will appear bass light in other environments.
“If you can’t take the room out of the mix, you can’t take the mix out of the room.”
REDI Acoustics provides a solution to the modal resonances, temporal density, and SBIR resonances, by iteratively optimizing the room geometry, the locations for speakers and listeners, and applying Acoustical Parametric EQualizers™ in the Geometry and Damper Modules. It also minimizes interfering reflections in the Reflection Free Zone and optimizes diffusion in the Diffuse Field Zone using the Reflection Module.
The growing use of DSP for “room tuning” attempts to address acoustical problems with electronic solutions, which has limited potential for success, because it alters the flat magnitude and phase response the speaker manufacturer created. We aims to provide "acoustical solutions to acoustical problems" in order to perfect the acoustics of the room without introducing electronic equalization.
NIRO™ is the latest development in iterative optimization for small rooms. REDI Acoustics offers three different modules and provides advanced consulting using any or all of the three modules to optimize your room.
The Geometry Module simultaneously optimizes the room shape, loudspeaker, and listener positions to achieve an optimal acoustic response within the architectural constraints. Find the best layout for your room.
The Damper Module uses APEQs™ (Acoustic Parametric EQualizers) to adequate the acoustical performance of your room. It controls the temporal decay of the sound in the room to achieve a tight and precise response.
You send us the information, we do the work. Our process involves distinct steps in between each part of the acoustic optimization to accommodate both architecture and audio requirements. We'll tailor the use of each module according to the acoustic needs of your room.
