Primacoustic VoxGuardTM Nearfield Absorber
- Controls ambient space around the microphone
- Creates intimate sound field around the mic
- Delivers cleaner more articulated voice track
- Allows you to add ambiance or effects as needed
The Primacoustic VoxGuard is a high performance ambient noise attenuator designed to surround the microphone and reduce unwanted sounds from contaminating the recording. This nearfield absorber works by creating an acoustic boundary around the microphone that at once contains the voice while eliminating room reflections from entering the mic.
Unlike other similar offerings that employ complex steel parts that are both heavy and cumbersome, the VoxGuard is light weight and extremely easy to use. It starts with a high-impact ABS outer surround shell that snugs onto the mic stand using the microphone’s clip to hold it in place. The light weight design makes positioning the VoxGuard easy without the usual fear of the stand falling over which could ultimately damage the microphone.
This makes the VoxGuard effective when used with round base stands, tripods and even with large studio booms. Once mounted, an innovative rear access cable port allows the microphone to be articulated and directed at a specific source, thus enabling the VoxGuard to also be used as an acoustic screen.
The acoustic ‘magic is performed with a high-density open cell acoustic foam liner. This effectively absorbs the voice range while keeping room ambiance out to produce a dry rendering. This is particularly important when attempting to recording in rooms with less than ideal acoustics or in noisy spaces. Since the VoxGuard is 50% larger than comparable products, noise flanking is significantly reduced and performance vastly improved.
The VoxGuard is ideal for recording studio vocals, voice-over tracks for film and TV post production, pod casting and field reporting.
Primacoustic VoxGuard Details and Specifications
The VoxGuard is a nearfield vocal screen designed to reduce the ambiance around a microphone when recording voice. This allows the voice to be captured while eliminating the echo and reverb, allowing the engineer to reintroduce the desired effects during post production.
The VoxGuard is unique in that it is larger than competitive products while being lighter. This makes it more stable on the mic stand and opens the door to a wide array of applications including shielding instruments from each other in the studio; as a desk top acoustic shield for pod casting and is able to be used with all types of mic stands.
The VoxGuard attaches to a mic stand with clip or with supplied stand adaptor. An open slot allows the cable through the back side while allowing the microphone to be articulated for optimum positioning.
