23 April 2007 — Sometimes the simplest of ideas proves to be the best which is the surely the case with sE’s Reflexion Filter. This “portable vocal booth” acts as a mini studio enclosure or live room enabling crystal clear recordings wherever you happen to be. When the Reflexion Filter was released a year ago it took the pro audio world by storm with the music technology press raving about it and producers the world over lining up to audition it, and then to endorse it! Just check out some of the comments the RF has attracted so far below…
Not surprisingly the Reflexion Filter has sold incredibly well around the world and it recently smashed through the milestone of 15,000 sales. James Young, sE’s MD says “There’s no doubting that the Reflexion Filter is simply one of those once in a lifetime products: a great idea, well executed, solidly built and, once tried, always used!”
“The beauty of it for us is that it’s a product which will remain an industry standard for years. We’ve already seen wannabe products appear, but none can hope to match the performance of the RF, as so many of the design features it took us almost 2 years to finalize, are very difficult to get right, and patented so they cannot be replicated. Some people thing that sticking a foam panel or pillow behind a mic will do the trick, but anything not extremely well thought out and engineered causes huge frequency peaks and creates more problems than it solves.”
“We’re incredibly pleased with the success of the RF. In fact the way things are going in 2007, the 20,000 mark is not far off! And look out for some fantastic new products from sE which are just as exciting…”
What the press and producers have said about RF…
“Every studio should have a Reflexion Filter” Stevie Wonder
“In my view this product really makes it easier to get a “pro-studio” sound at home.” Legendary producer Steve Levine
“My ears told me that it worked. Straightaway my voice sounded much cleaner and more focused. Once you’ve tried it you wonder why you didn’t start using it before.” Jerry Ibbotson, Audio Media
“Extremely good value when you consider that it might well make more difference to the subjective quality of your recordings than blowing an extra grand or two on more sophisticated mics and preamps!” Paul White, Sound On Sound.
“It really does make it sound like you have a very expensive booth.” Chris Porter, engineer Tina Turner, George Michael, Take That and many more.
“Very effective, well executed, a clever idea that will appeal to lots of people” Jon Musgrave, Future Music
“A must for anybody recording vocals or solo instruments at home. Now you can turn your living room into a professional vocal booth.” Sean Woolridge, Sweetwater.com
