I’ve Died and Gone to Tube Trap Heaven

I moved into a new space about 6 months ago that afforded me with about 1800 sq feet of studio space (most of it a large live room). I finally got around to tuning my rooms. I looked into DIY tube traps and decided to take the plunge. I called my local pipe insulation dealer and was told that they had a literal semi truck load of overstock OC pipe insulation (in every imaginable size) that I could have for free. It’s truly a jackpot situation. I loaded up a truck bed yesterday and began the process. The results are truly astounding on the graphs and in the ears. I’m going to get as much in there as possible so I’ll track my progress and results in this thread. The plan is to leave them half covered in the ASJ cover and half exposed insulation (covered in fabric) so I can vary the sound as needed. New monitors coming on Tuesday so I’ll hold off on posting any measurements until they are setup.

Great find! I had good luck in a live room with those split in half over HVAC registers too, if you've got some noise from them.

So... They have any more? After you pick your fill you'd be doing them a favor...

Awesome! Just orders 8 studiotraps from ASC. Excited to utilize this method for tracking and mixing.

Every studio needs needs to yell “Score!” at least once. 🙂
