Acoustic Consulting

Fundamental to all the work SoundAround does is an understanding of how materials reflect, absorb, and transmit sound.

An acoustic analysis can help you to understand the behavior of sound in your room, and a sound plan can help you take steps to improve its performance for your customers and employees!

Sound Installations

SoundAround can help to calm your space with room treatments from well-known suppliers.

The difference is, you have SoundAround to specify, source, and install sound treatment that gets you maximum bang-for-buck.

“My home studio, like those of many other musicians, is located in a bedroom. Jay took this boomy, hard-surfaced room and tamed it. He is scientific and intentional where sound is concerned. Now the room—which contains a full ensemble’s worth of instruments: acoustic drums; electric and acoustic guitars; electric basses; amplifiers of various types and sizes; a full midi-keyboard, etc.—is sonically alive. Thanks to Jay’s expertise and care, I now am capable of recording any instrument without worrying that its sound will control me. And he also is aware that the panels have an aesthetic as well as acoustic responsibility, so he makes them look good, thus creating an ambiance that makes the space comfortable and visually pleasing to work in. Couldn’t be happier with the tonality of my new studio.
