are the most critical components you use to verify the quality of your
work. No matter how good your mixer, mics, preamps, cables, and other
pieces of gear that you've invested in, you're not truly hearing what
your recordings sound like until you isolate your monitors from their
Isolate Your Monitors
In the studio environment, everything that vibrates can add artifacts
to your sound. If you allow your monitors to acoustically couple to a
shelf, a rack, desk, or the meter bridge of your mixing board, it can
degrade the accuracy of what you're hearing. Furthermore, once your monitors
spread vibrations to whatever they're resting on, everything else that's
in physical contact with your monitors will vibrate too.
This is where the
Auralex MoPads come in. MoPads provide sonic isolation between your monitors
and whatever your monitors are resting on, INSTANTLY improving the accuracy
of your entire monitoring system.
from 5 Listening Angles
Auralex MoPads come with wedge adjusters, allowing you to tilt your studio
monitors (or any item to be decoupled/isolated) to listening angles of
4°, 8°, -4°, and -8°. Leaving the Auralex MoPad wedge
in place allows the monitor to be set flat at 0 degrees.
More Than Just Monitors
Auralex MoPads have other unlimited uses, such as isolating delicate electronics
from vibration. They are also useful under CD burners, computer speakers,
laptops and turntables, providing it doesn't restrict air flow. Auralex
MoPADs are affordable, easy to implement, and really effective at decoupling
your monitors - or ANYTHING in your studio - from your room and all its
contents. Buy a set today - you'll hear an AMAZING difference.

Musician, July 2003
you place your monitors on a desk or table, or - probably the most common
scenario - on top of one of those studio furniture desks where there's
a rack on either side of your computer monitor, purchase MoPads. The reduction
in resonance in your studio furniture will likely be immediately apparent,
and is well worth the price of admission."
EQ Magazine, May 2002
I toted the MoPads from studio to studio for evaluation, I was impressed
by the range of audible improvements realized. By decoupling the monitors
from other objects, speakers are free to perform as originally designed.
In most cases speakers immediately sounded better. The most common improvement
was a tighter, more focused bass response. ... In all cases, the MoPads
were an easy-to-implement step towards monitoring accuracy; do not rely
on the resonance of others!"
