"For my last five albums I've sung my vocals right here in this room, in my home studio...and without the RF, it would be next to impossible. If you're making records at home, you've got to have an sE Reflexion Filter."
— Brian McKnight, R&B Singer-Songwriter / Arranger / Producer / Musician (watch video here)
"SPACE is a hit; we're big fans of the RF Pro, and count it as an essential studio tool for providing additional acoustic isolation around vocal and string recordings - but there's no doubt that SPACE does the job even better."
"I like to do vocals in the control room - much more direct interaction with the vocalist, so it's perfect for that. With so many of us working in all sorts of situations these days, the Reflexion Filter transforms any of these into a viable recording environment."
— Lenise Bent, Producer / Engineer (Blondie, Steely Dan, Supertramp, The Band, Fleetwood Mac)
"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)
"Trust me, they will change your recording process for the better."
"SPACE is a hit; we're big fans of the RF Pro, and count it as an essential studio tool for providing additional acoustic isolation around vocal and string recordings - but there's no doubt that SPACE does the job even better. On test recordings, we noticed cleaner results even less influenced by our studio's natural acoustic reflections, which made mixing them more immediately creative, with fewer 'corrective' EQ changes required."
"A number of imitation 'reflexion filters' have come to market since sE's original but very few actually do what they're supposed to, which is to improve acoustics around recordings. SPACE absolutely underlines sE's status as the market leader in this field."

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!
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.
