    Patented Multi-Layer Technology

    Unlike cheap foam RF imitations, sE’s patented multi-layer technology works evenly across the whole frequency spectrum to ensure a balanced, even sound with no coloration at all. This is what makes the Reflexion Filter unique, and makes it the choice of the biggest recording artists in the world – whether they’re working in untreated rooms, or working in a professionally-designed studio and just need a little more isolation.

    How it Works

    When you put a microphone in front of you, it doesn’t just hear you – it hears the room around you. Even if it’s a cardioid mic and is listening mostly to just you, it’s still picking up reflections from your voice or instrument that are bouncing off the walls and coming back to the mic. The goal of our multi-layered design is to minimize the pickup of such reflections so your primary sound source comes through as pure as possible.

    Ultra-Stable Hardware

    In 2016, we completely redesigned the RF Pro’s mounting hardware to increase stability, simplify ease of use, and provide an updated level of performance, durability, and aesthetics. It allows panning and tilting for maximum flexibility, and all moving parts are chromatized to ensure low wear. The extra stability means that your RF Pro can be positioned solidly at any angle to help provide a “dry” sound when recording any source – vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, amplifiers, drums, room mics, strings, and countless other instruments.

    — Scott Hendricks, EVP A&R Warner Music Nashville / producer (Blake Shelton, Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn) - sE Artist
  • "I don’t notice a change in the tonality at all when recording vocals with the RF. It’s the most consistent piece of gear that I've found for recording in different environments!"

    — Scott Hendricks, EVP A&R Warner Music Nashville / producer (Blake Shelton, Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn) - sE Artist
  • "I use it to keep the bad out and the good in. On vocals in certain rooms, on guitar cabs, and even on drums (floor toms and kicks)."

    — F. Reid Shippen, GRAMMY®-winning Mixer / Engineer / Producer (India.Arie, Ingrid Michaelson, Jonny Lang) - sE Artist
  • "I like recording vocals in the control room, it's a much more collaborative experience with vocalists and the RF works perfectly in that setting."

    — Lenise Bent, Producer / Engineer (Blondie, Steely Dan, Supertramp, The Band, Fleetwood Mac)
  • "I also think it's a wonderful device for students to know and learn about, to hear the difference with and without the filter. All audio schools should have them."

    — Lenise Bent, Producer / Engineer (Blondie, Steely Dan, Supertramp, The Band, Fleetwood Mac)
  • "The Reflexion Filter has made a big impact on the quality of our home recordings. Never again will an amazing vocal take be marred by intermittent meowing or the sound of the fridge!"

    — Tegan and Sara, pop musicians - sE Artist
  • "The Reflexion Filter makes a huge difference in small recording spaces that are more and more the norm..."

    — Andy Bradfield, Producer (David Bowie, David Gray, Rufus Wainwright)

    — Brian McKnight, R&B Singer-Songwriter / Arranger / Producer / Musician (watch video here)
  • "I’ve used RF's on vocals and instruments alike where I either need more isolation from other sounds/instruments in the room, or I don’t like the character of the room and I’m trying to minimize the amount of room sound pulled into the mic."

    — Neal Cappellino, GRAMMY®-winning producer/engineer (Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss & Union Station) - sE Artist
  • "You can never have enough tools and tricks to get the job done. This is exactly the kind of tool that, once you have it, you’ll use it over and over."

Q&A

How do I set up my Reflexion Filter? Do you offer an instruction manual or video guide?

Video setup guides are located on the individual product pages for the RF-X, Reflexion Filter Pro, and RF Space, and all RF products (including the guitaRF®) have downloadable PDF setup guides as well. If you require further assistance with setting up your Reflexion Filter, please fill out our Support Request form and we will help you as best we can.

Will my Reflexion Filter work on a boom stand?

All of our Reflexion Filters are designed to work best with conventional (vertical) microphone stands. It is entirely possible to utilize them on a very sturdy boom stand, but great care must be taken to ensure proper balance and counterweighting, as the weight of the filter plus a microphone (especially an expensive microphone!) can be quite heavy. If a boom stand mount is necessary, we recommend securely attaching the filter to the boom arm first, making sure the whole assembly is extremely solidly positioned, and then attaching the microphone afterwards. We can assume no responsibility for damaged microphones if the boom arm decides to tilt down or around due to the extra weight put upon it, so please be careful!

My Reflexion Filter doesn’t seem balanced when I mount it on a stand. Please help!

When setting up your Reflexion Filter, the most important thing is to maintain the center of gravity. This means adjusting the position of the filter appropriately so that the combined weight of the filter and microphone is centered directly above the mic stand, not off to one side. Also check to make sure that all screws are tightened sufficiently to prevent slipping or movement of any parts.
