Digital Subscriptions > MusicTech > Sep-18 > ISO-Puck £52 PER PAIR



T here’s a chance that you could improve the sound of your monitors by simply isolating them from the very surface that they are standing on, and these ISO-Pucks from ISO Acoustics are designed to do just that. Speakers placed directly on any surface are bound to vibrate that surface and lead to (at the very least) a little bit of sound colouration. To rectify this problem you should have rubber feet beneath each monitor but, even then, it’s unlikely that you will isolate everything. There are dedicated stands available to do the job – in fact, ISO Acoustics have such stands in the form of the ISO Series – but ISO-Pucks are neater solutions. These are solid, round units and they look and feel what we’d imagine ice hockey pucks feel like, only they have rubber top and bottom surfaces which make them attach very solidly to the base of your speakers. (And stick to them a little too much as we found when we lifted our speakers up!)

You buy them in packs of two, for around £52 per pack, and you’ll need at least three under each speaker. They support monitors up to 9kg per Puck and once set up are difficult to move – a good thing as far as isolation goes, as their build, weight and that ‘stickiness’ of the surface mean isolation is high.

Also this issue, Erin Barra simplifies some vital music production concepts that may have long eluded your understanding – to hopefully increase your sonic vocabulary. We speak to Kanye West’s former controllerist and cutting-edge musician Laura Escudé, UNO synth designer Erik Norlander and Emmy-winning Guus Hoevenaars.
