The Primacoustic GoTrap is a combination studio gobo and bass trap that is designed to enhance the recording process by controlling spill between instruments, while passively removing excessive bass from the room.
It features two Broadway fabric covered high-density glass wool acoustic panels mounted on both sides that effectively absorb the sound. This is augmented with a heavy internal MDF board that adds mass to help contain spill between instruments. The MDF board also acts like a low frequency resonator that combines with the acoustic panels and the deep internal air cavity to absorb bass down to 75Hz.
Shipped flat to save freight, the 24″ x 36″ (609mm x 914mm) GoTrap is made from furniture grade multi-ply Baltic birch and engineered with dovetail joints for maximum durability in professional studio environments. This is particularly important when you consider that gobos tend to be tossed around or stacked to create walls and often employed as a bench for studio session players! Features include side access handles for easy handling and rubber feet to reduce wear & tear. The GoTrap is available with choice of grey, beige or black panels.
This makes the GoTrap an ideal studio device as it will be constantly used as a gobo to control spill from instruments to improve the recordings while quietly working to help control excessive bass in your studio.
GoTrap is a studio gobo designed to control spill between instruments that also acts as a combination broadband absorber and bass trap to help control excessive bass. Sound control is achieved by combining three acoustical principles into a single device:
1. To handle lower mid-range and upper frequencies, a set of 2″ thick absorptive panels are mounted on the front and back. These are made from 6lb per cubic foot (96 kg/m³) high-density encapsulated glass wool for maximum absorption.
2. Between the acoustic panels is a rigid membrane that acts as a sound block to control spill while also naturally resonating at lower frequencies. This helps absorb low frequency bass while providing sufficient mass to contain sound.
3. An 8″ air cavity between the acoustic panels is created by the plywood enclosure. This creates a natural bass trap that serves to further attenuate bass in the troublesome 100Hz region.
The GoTrap enclosure is made from Baltic birch plywood with dovetail joints and a durable natural finish. The GoTrap ships flat to save on freight and final assembly is performed using simple household tools in about 15 minutes from start to finish!
