Thank you Exactly, When I don't use it for recording I put it in the corner and it acts as a giant absorber

I think these would be cool for recording live guitar cabs?

Yes but I personally like the room sound when micing guitar cabinets. Even an average sounding room might add a nice room ambience to the sound of the cabinet..But if you want some seperation between cabinet vs other microphones, yes it should help..maybe a 4-way configuartion and one on the top as well..

EDIT: If of course you were talking about my bass trap above, if its the reflexion filter, I haven't tried it..I am only guessing that it might be a bit ineffective due to loud cabinet sound..

I have the SE Filter. It works and does make a difference. You need a heavy duty mic stand to hold it. I have mounted it to the Heavy duty Atlas boom stand (as in the monster one) however it is not ideal.

I feel the Glen or Ethan's products are superior and will yield a better sound in a small room than the SE Filter.

Even in a live situation you want drum bleed and monitor bleed? I agree about room sound and im sure there is some sort of config. that would allow the user to obtain the sound and tone they desire yet isolate stage bleed from the mic. I have yet to get my hands on one but if we pick up a studiolive or something soon i would like to mess with 2 of them for recording on stage.

What's the major difference between the "portable studio" and "professional studio" models? Other than the plastic-to-aluminum cosmetic difference?

I have a basement studio that is not well acoustically treated. I could not treat the whole space as the basement also serves as a second living room and a play room for the kids. I am an amateur recording hobbyist and the only person I record is myself playing mostly acoustic/electric guitar. As I do everything ( performer, sound engineer and cue man) during the recording process, there could be no separate control room and recording booth. Everything should be in one room. With this recording set up, most of the time, I do not get a clean sound as I end up recording extraneous noises from the computer hardrive and surrounding area. To alleviate this problem, I decided to try the reflection filter. I bought the vocal reflection filter and not the instrument one as the latter could only hold one pencil mic. The darn reflection filter is heavy and so clunky that it would topple most mic stands. I had to modify the connections so the filter could be attached to a table top mic stand. With this arrangement the filter is more stable and flexible for recording acoustic instruments. The set up is also good for miking small amp cabinets. Soundwise - recordings do sound cleaner and drier.

A lesser talkback mic might do?

Hey emftbmd, how do acoustic guitar rythm tracks sound when recorded with the reflexion filter? Does it keep bass build up from the room from reaching the mic and making it into the recording?

This thing didn't even last a day with us. Really disliked it and there's much better solutions for less - that you don't have to buy a behemoth boom stand to use it I might add

Hello!
How does BABY RF compare to RF-X - what would be sound differences between those two?
I understand that RF-X is cheaper (but also wider 41 to 39 cm)..

Thnx for help
