I'm really curious to hear the effect The SubPac has on the music listening experience and would love to try it in the studio. According to the website it allows you to "...Experience intense bass without damaging your hearing. The SubPac is a tactile audio device that quietly and directly transfers low frequencies to your body, allowing you to FEEL MUSIC."FEATURES
- Allows you to properly monitor low frequencies (more accurately feel the difference between bass, kick and sub-bass etc.)
- Experience your track/mix as if it were being played in a club system.
- Flat response with no EQ or compressors. SubPac provides the true signal.
- Portable: you can produce with the proper frequency spectrum on the go – plane, hotel, café, train etc.
- Can produce at all hours of the night without noise complaints.
- Preserves hearing - no need to crank your system.
I like the fact that it allows you to feel the bass without having to resort to loud volume levels. Great for your hearing plus no complaints from the neighbors. If I can calibrate it for studio use it would be a great asset for mixing.
They currently have a KickStarter Project (where you can purchase a pre-release version) and they're more than halfway to their goal. I'm going to arrange an audition of the SubPac. In the meantime check out the video below.
