Primacoustic’s VoxGuard VU Features See-through Window

February 13 2015, 03:00
Vancouver-based Primacoustic (a division of Radial Engineering) announced an update to its popular nearfield absorber VoxGuard. The new VoxGuard VU now features a window for improved sightlines and still retains its main properties as an effective portable acoustic screen.

The Primacoustic VoxGuard VU was designed to reduce the ambient noise around a microphone when recording and helping to eliminate excess echo and reverb. According to Primacoustic’s Jay Porter: “The VoxGuard is one of the most popular products in our line of Iso-Tools. With thousands shipped world-wide we heard feedback from customers who suggested the inclusion of a viewing window would allow for eye contact and improve the recording experience. This simple solution can now be found on the new models that begin shipping this month.”
Re-named the VoxGuard VU, the improved product features a 3” X 7” window but retains all of the benefits of acoustic isolation for use in a recording studio. The lightweight design also makes it an ideal tool for mobile recording. The VoxGuard VU’s high impact ABS outer shell keeps unwanted noise out while innovative slotted ports prevent excess bass buildup.

The VoxGuard VU features high-density open cell acoustic foam that provides maximum absorption throughout the vocal range. Unlike other similar offerings that employ heavy and cumbersome steel parts, the VoxGuard is lightweight and easy to use. The outer shell simply slides over the threads of the microphone stand and is held in place by the clip, shock mount, or included threaded adapters. For additional flexibility, an extension bar is included for infinite mic placement possibilities.

The lightweight design and simple mounting hardware makes positioning the VoxGuard easy without the usual fear of the stand falling over and damaging the microphone while a rear access cable port allows any hand held or studio microphone to be articulated and directed at a specific source.

Thanks to its simple and lightweight design, the VoxGuard can also be used as a portable acoustic gobo in front of amplifiers, acoustic instruments, or anywhere that basic isolation is required. This makes it and ideal tool for recording studios, film and television, podcasting, and mobile recording.
MAP for the VoxGuard VU is $99.99 USD.
