What is Soundproofing?


Appropriate room treatment is a standout amongst the most essential things you can do to take control over the sound of your studio. When you initially set up a space, your music may not sound great.

There is a wide assortment of studio treatment items—boards, bass traps, wedges, diffusers—in an assortment of shapes, sizes, surfaces, and densities, all of which are proposed to control some part of the room's sound. While we don't have space here to do even a fundamental "Acoustics 101" breakdown, we would like to specify the distinction between sound treatment and soundproofing. The acoustic froth items we offer are intended to control reflections and recurrence reaction inside a room, not soundproof it (keep sound from getting away). Genuine soundproofing requires particular development strategies and materials. In the event that your neighbors are griping about sound levels, none of these items will help tackle that specific issue.

Acoustic froth items are intended to diffuse sound waves to stay away from problem areas and nulls. Doing this can augment the listening "sweet spot." Acoustic items are additionally used to control reflections that can bring about ringing, vacillate reverberations, low recurrence standing waves and spreading of the stereo picture. Bass traps, for the most part, go in corners to lessen the likelihood of standing waves, and diffusors and ingestion boards are put on the dividers to help control mid-and high-recurrence reflections. Each room is distinctive, and unless you're sufficiently lucky to have the capacity to have an acoustic master outline it without any preparation, you'll have to invest some energy counseling with one of our sound geniuses to make sense of the most ideal approach to approach upgrading your room.

Go ahead and buy that soundproofing foam.

Ballad



Hear the ballad “Murdered WomanSuddenly Gets Up from Chair.”It’s an honest ballad, pennedneither to shock nor to offend.The thing happened fair and square,with curtains open, lamps all lit;passersby could stop and stare.When the door had shut behind himand the killer ran downstairs,she stood up, just like the livingstartled by the sudden silence.She gets up, she moves her head,and she looks around with eyesharder than they were before.No, she doesn’t float through air;she steps on the ordinary,wooden, slightly creaky floor.In the oven she burns tracesthat the killer’s left behind:here a picture, there shoelaces,everything that she can find.It’s obvious that she’s not strangled.It’s obvious that she’s not shot.She’s been killed invisibly.She may still show signs of life,cry for sundry silly reasons,shriek in horror at the sightof a mouse,Ridiculoustraits are so predictablethat they aren’t so hard to fake.She got up like you and me.She walks just as people do.And she sings and combs her hair,which still grows.— WisÅ‚awa Szymborska

The Best Headphones For You



If you're like me, listening to music is a daily habit. Whether I am travelling and want to send a don't-talk-to-me signal or relaxing at home, I alwasy prefer listening to music through headphones. But did you know that there are different types of headphones?

In-ear monitors (IEMs) and earbuds

Most sports headphones fall into the IEM category. In-ear monitors (or IEMs) are headphones that fit inside each ear canal. Earbuds, on the other hand, feature small drivers that rest on the ridge of your outer ear. They usually deliver lesser fidelity and isolation than other types of headphones.

They are cheap, very small and offer good sound quality for an affordable price.

On-ear

This is the type of headphones which sit right over your outer ear. On-ear headphones are similar in design to over-ear models, though the cushions sit on the outer ear rather than enclosing the ears. When you are wearing on-ear headphones, you can still hear outside sounds, and others nearby might be able to hear your music.

Over-ear

Also known as "around-ear" or "full-size" headphones, over-ear headphones have cushioned earcups that enclose the ears. Usually considered the best headphones for sound quality, most over-ear models also do a good job of isolating the user from outside sound. This feature is sometimes called "passive noise reduction."

If you're looking for topnotch headphones, Guitar Center has, shure headphones at a great price!

5 Reasons Why You Should Have Musician Friends



1.  You may have a talent in music that you have yet to discover. Having muscian friends can help you unlock that potental. They can guide you in choosing the best gears to start with. Or you yourself is already playing an instrument. Your musiccian friends can help you hone that talent.

2. Having musician friends means always having someone with a unique taste to enrich your playlist. You do not have to rely on radios that usually fill your playlist with whatever that is popular.

3. Having musician friends means having instant entertainment all the time. You can't possibly get bored when in the company of people who can provide live entertainment any time.

4. Musician friends live for emotions and feelings. That means you can be honest with them with your truest self. Who knows, your story can inspire them to write a song or a melody. 

5. They will teach you living life in the moment. Musicians feel deeply. They have a grasp of reality that is different from regular people. Thus, having them around makes life so much more liveable and interesting.

Two Famous Guitars I Covet


In the world of music, an artist's  instrument can become as icinic as he is. It's like the guitar becomes one as the artist that one cannot exist without the other. The choice of guitar conveys much of the artist's personality. It is an extension of himself.

Let's take two famous guitars in history that I covet:
Prince’s “Cloud” which was originally custom-built by Minneapolis luthier David Rusan in 1983, the guitar was featured prominently in Prince’s Purple Rain film. Though some fans might argue in favor of his symbol guitar, the Cloud just looks sexier, more like something a regular musician might actually want to play.
Kurt Cobain’s Fender Jag-Stang had a fair share of guitars played throughout the band’s career, a couple of the Fender models he played tend to stand out: the Jaguar and the Mustang. Rather than having to pick either one of those, it’s only natural to feature the Jag-Stang, Cobain’s very own combination of both guitars. As the story goes, Kurt designed the guitar himself via a montage of polaroid photos.
It is clear that choosing the right guitar is important. But where do you look? You can start by searching for a reputable guitar store. Some even offer classes to help you in your craft.
