Isolate Your Mic and Achieve Better Sound with MudGuard v2

Is muddy sound hurting your mixes? The Auralex MudGuard v2 is a microphone isolation shield that reduces or eliminates external noise bleed and filters out unwanted acoustic reflections. MudGuard v2 is engineered for maximum effectiveness using Studiofoam to reduce excessive room ambience and off-axis sound. Simple to use, MudGuard v2 mounts directly to most mic stands and clips. Use it to isolate, for instance, a vocalist in the same room with the rest of the band - or a vibraphone player positioned near the drummer. The original MudGuard was one of the most popular mic isolation tools at Sweetwater, and the MudGuard v2 features an updated convex design for even better isolation. If you don't have an iso booth (or two), check out the Auralex MudGuard v2 - it's the next best thing.

Auralex MudFLAP

On paper it makes sense, but in the studio it doesn't do as well as other mic stand-mounted iso shields. There seems to be a low-mid frequency that it accentuates, and I have to really tweak the VO in post just to make it sound better. The connectivity to the mic stand also leaves a bit to be desired. The included hardware is shoddy and the threads don't fit properly onto the mic stand. If you enjoy modifying brand new equipment out of the box in order to make it function properly, then this product is for you. If you like ease of use right out of the gate, you may want to look at other isolation shields.

Not for me

After trying this out it added a lower-mid boxy tonality to the sound. It's subtle and others may not mind or notice. It did add some improvement in isolation. Most of these treatments have some similar effect.
