Jocavi Acoustic Material
When searching for more than just acoustic enrichment for your “Audio Recording Studios, Rehearsal Studios, Home Theatre’s, Music Listening Rooms and Live Entertainment Rooms”. Check out this new line of Jocavi Acoustic materials. It deals with sophistication by means of its multiple depth grids that are perfect for eliminating flutter echoes and acoustical anomalies. The wooden diffuser panel are designed for even sound dispersion that gives you a more consistent listening environment. It’s perfect for Audio Mixing and Recording environment that demand consistency and accuracy.
I am glad that I have met Mr Anil Saed (technical consultant in Singapore) who is involved with Jocavi Acoustic Treatment Panels that are largely recognised by the acoustic industry people as high acoustic performance products. They have a wide range of products, particularly diffusion models and low frequency tuned panels. Their range of products will provide any designer with a large variety of solutions. There are several types of absorption and diffusion panels which are manufactured in 43 different main raw materials through semi-automated and manual processes. Jocavi has introduced new natural raw materials to enrich the new incoming collection for 2015.

My options for Audio Recording Studios are:
The Woodiffusor. This wooden diffuser panel is the result of a long design and analysis process and one of Jocavi’s options in terms of diffuser panels. The use of this extremely efficient pinewood panel is imperative to control the first and other reflections from the front walls and encourages correct sound diffusion in the room. This wooden diffuser works on a wide band of the sound spectrum, also absorbing some medium frequencies, due to its shape. The wooden diffusion panel is a 2D diffusion panel that focuses on controlling horizontal dispersion and is efficient in a wide range of frequencies. It is based on the rotation sequence of primary incidence angles, thereby making sound diffusion uniform in several directions with similar energy. This panel is made of solid pinewood plus a finish of five different colours of varnish. The wood stands out inside the studio and makes this product look very charismatic, both acoustically and appealingly.
In reality there are some characteristics that set these acoustic panels apart from the competition. Mainly when using the diffusers. You may have a difficult job finding so many different materials used on panels. Of course it is not only about the looks but also providing different effects acoustically.
The Coralreef is a 3D controlled dispersion acoustic diffusion panel. It is made of high-density polystyrene and its finishing membrane provides it with the intended acoustic qualities. Its angular appearance gives dynamics to any space and provides a decorative effect.
This acoustic panel is installed on ceilings and walls. Its low weight makes it the ideal product for use on false ceilings, on its own or alternated with flat modules when refinement and quality are required. The calculation basis was the theoretical numerical sequence ratio of the primitive root, thus providing excellent result of sound diffusion in all directions. The depth factor is logarithmically varied, and it is, therefore, a three-dimension omnidirectional reflection panel. Due to its quite sinuous shape with deep recesses, as well as the raw material it is made of, this product also has a considerable associated absorption coefficient.
The Squarydiffusor is a diffusion panel that has a higher balance between diffusion/absorption. It is a 2D quadratic diffuser with five slightly uneven gradients. The Squarydiffusor is made of low-density clay paste. Due to its quadratic shape and the raw material it uses, its diffusion and absorption features are well balanced for a diffusion panel. The Squarydiffusor enables quite good control of acoustics by fragmenting the reflected energy, while the absorption factor is not too high, therefore it is recommended for installation in small-sized studio rooms, by making the acoustics of those spaces quite consistent. This product is also available in individual tiles and it is mainly proposed for big diffusion surfaces, with continuous coating, it’s an ideal for “Home Recording Studios”.
The Basscorner’s are used to control of low frequencies, it is essential in any Recording Studio, Home Theatre or Music room, especially in the corners where long waves are generated, example, stationary low frequencies which are heard as a “boom”, therefore making low frequencies puffy, muddy and conflicting from the rest of the sound spectrum. Using JOCAVI’s Basscorner is essential. This panel, which is extremely efficient at holding back excessive levels of low frequencies, is manufactured with an exclusive production membrane mounted on a tuned box, which makes this box highly efficient between 32 Hz and 280 Hz. The absorption panel Basscorner reduces to a high degree with excessive energy of low frequencies. Its highest absorption coefficient stands at 100 Hz. The trapezoidal shape of this panel makes it look discreet in the room, as it is installed in corners which are usually unnoticed.
Plus, there is numerous other acoustic applications material available by Jocavi Group.
