Clarity provides acoustic architecture solutions to a variety of venues including recording studios, commercial applications, and church acoustics. We apply a six point protocol to room acoustic treatment and analysis.
Your listening space is as much a part of your sound system as the equipment. Acoustics must be considered even in the best architectural designs.
We help our clients to understand why their facilities sound as they do, and provide solutions to align the room’s performance to the usage and needs of not just the audio, but all auditory interrelationships within the room, in an aesthetically pleasing way.
“We reviewed the room acoustics with some audio recordings for our clients last week and they were very pleased with the acoustical improvement. It’s been great working with such knowledgeable, professional and passionate individuals – many thanks again!”

We consider far more than loudspeaker performance. Our process focuses on the needs of the talent/performer as well as the listener experience while respecting the genre of audio style desired. With that context, we seek to optimize:
Freedom from Echo
Envelopment of the Listener
Freedom from Noise
My original expectations for the room were to have a nicer place to mix projects with some better acoustics. I’ve ended up with a room so good it challenges me to do better work. That part was not anticipated but it is certainly welcome! My calendar is filling up and I’m going to enjoy this new chapter in my career.
Mark Williams, Grammy Nominated Mix Engineer
Our process includes characterization of your room dimensionally and through recorded testing, development of a 3D model, definition of alternative solutions and expected results after application.
We provide an accountability for the results and can even “demonstrate” the solution through binauralization, before and after treatment auditory samples during the design phase.
Sound isolation controls the transfer of noise between adjacent spaces.
It is typically a concern where you have a higher output source close to a critical listening space, such as a large performance space near a classroom.
Successful sound isolation cannot be obtained by applying wall materials as in architectural acoustics. The actual construction methods become the focus. That said, isolation is built in, rather than added on.
