The Halo Practice Room Solution

The designers at Halo Systems have painstakingly developed a Series of practice rooms which differ from all others on the market.

The problem most common to all practice rooms is that they are unnaturally dampened in order to isolate one room from the next. This over-dampening causes several issues-

  1. Over-dampening causes the musician to strain in an effort to hear his/her self as they normally would.
  2. Over-dampening causes the instrument or voice to sound unnatural and lifeless, losing musicality.
  3. Over-dampening causes intonation problems when changing from the practice room to the performance stage.
These problems have hampered our fine arts departments for decades.
 
The Solution – Our design utilizes the space within the perimeter walls to isolate or soundproof by using proprietary layering methods. This allows us to “Tune” or “EQ” the room how we wish. We decided to maximize the efficiency of valuable practice time by designing three pre-EQ’d rooms. The first optimized for Strings, Woodwinds and Vocals. The 2nd optimized for Brass instruments, and a 3rd optimized for high impact instruments such as Drums/Percussion, Bass and amplified instruments.
 
Most often it makes sense for a school to order a mix of the pre EQ’d rooms to fit their most common needs. For example, you may require 4 String/Woodwind Rooms, 4 Brass Rooms and 1 Drum Room.
 
Now the most common question we get is – “Will it work ok for a trumpet player to practice in the String/Woodwind room or vice versa?” The answer is YES. Any instrument can effectively work in any of the 3 rooms. In fact, the result will still be better than practicing in a traditional cookie-cutter dampened room. But your brass players will prefer the brass room just as your cellist with prefer the string room.
