Acoustic Foam For YouTubers – Improving Video Quality

acoustic foam for youtubers

Competition for content creators on YouTube is ever expanding. As the technology to create videos becomes more accessible for people, more and more individuals are trying their hand at content creation. Thinking of trying it for yourself? It could start as a hobby and evolve into something more. Perhaps even a full-time job!

Acoustic Foam for YouTubers – Keep Your Audience Enthused

To keep yourself in the running, you’ll naturally want to craft the best content for your audience. Engaging content is, of course, fundamental to success on YouTube, but how else can you refine your videos?

A great video camera is a start. One that captures footage in clear definition (nobody likes to be able to count the pixels on the videos they watch). Recording equipment is also important. If your audience can’t properly hear you, that’s going to cause a big problem. And while we’re on the topic of sound, let’s also address your room acoustics.

Ech-Oh No! Acoustic Foam for Content Creators

So, you’ve set up your station to create content. Great work! You create a video, and everything goes swimmingly. That is until you get to the editing phase. Now you’re noticing issues with your sound. Sure, it could be your recording equipment, but there’s a high probability that your room acoustics are to blame for the interference.

The way sound interacts with your environment can wreak havoc on your final recordings. That is unless you have the proper acoustic treatment installed. Don’t worry, you’re not going to have to commission the engineering of a sound isolation booth just yet. A little acoustic foam though will go a long way in helping you out.

Acoustic Foam for YouTubers – Get Acoustic Treatment

If you watch a lot of other content creators on YouTube, you may well have noticed acoustic foam panels mounted on the wall behind them. No these aren’t for decoration (although we do stock some pretty nifty colours) they’re in place to help improve room acoustics. Ultimately, this helps to refine the quality of the content created.

Here at GB Foam Direct, we stock a range of acoustic foam tiles, bass traps and corner cubes to help you easily get the acoustic treatment you need. We even stock premade room kits if you want the full works in one convenient package.

Why Acoustic Foam for Youtubers is Important

There are plenty of ways in which sound can interfere with your recordings. Not all sound waves travel directly from the source to your recording device. Some bounce off of solid surfaces prior to reaching your recording device.

We call these sound waves reflections and it’s these which can cause issues with sound recording. By softening vulnerable surfaces with specialist acoustic foam, you can prevent a majority of these annoying sound waves from ruining your recordings.

Our acoustic foam is designed to absorb sound wave energy. By absorbing large portions of energy contained within reflected sound waves, they cannot travel as far as usual. This prevents them from reaching your recording device and running your videos.

There’s plenty more to learn about acoustic foam and the way sound works. If you would like to know more, be sure to visit our acoustic foam page. Here you’ll find more detailed information on how acoustic foam can help you!
