»Resonance is the only manifestation in physics which combines giving with taking, where giver becomes taker and taker becomes giver.«

Welcome to our website

Resonance Spectral Tuning is therefore – just as did the famous old masters of the art of violin making – specialized in improving the processes of the resonance and has thereby developed the system of Resonance Spectral Tuning. With its help the settling time of the plate vibrancy has been shorted tremendously and a wide band resonance effect has been realized. This site introduces the revolutionary Ignatius technique which has revolutionized the field of room acoustics.

On December 13, 2014 I had the pleasure of meeting as conductor of the Philharmonic concert at the Zurich Opera House, the new Sound Shell Company RESPA. Even before that day I had musicians tell of the special qualities of this concert space where the Philharmonia Zurich since the beginning of this season playing her concerts. The excellent acoustic conditions, especially the warm, transparent and harmonically rich sound are praised by the participants as well as the listeners to law. I conclude this judgment at me wholeheartedly.

With great concern I accepted to give concerts in the Zurich Opera. A typical Opera House. Not suitable for concerts ... But what a surprise. The new Ignatius Bandshell creates optimal conditions concert. The musicians listen to each other perfectly, and the sound is rich, warm, transparent and engaging. The shell is both suitable for small ensembles as well as greatest with choir and soloists. A Miracle. As of Ignatius soundboard!

Independently of each other could become quite a few people at the great organ of our concert hall in the Musikhochschule Trossingen of the great effectiveness of the RESPA panels in view of the resonance formation in the instrument and convince the order given much greater presence of the instrument in space.

... The first impression was amazing for me. I could hear the musicians much better and more clearly hear the reverberation was clearly reduced, the volume bearable. ... These have since been used in the orchestra rehearsals to our satisfaction. Since the RESPA panel resonators are on adjustable feet, they can be placed variable - another advantage of this conception.

The orchestral sound has become more transparent, the colors of individual instruments and groups stand out more clearly from one another. In particular, this relates to the perception of the individual strings registers. The private game I experience especially in solo passages of the clarinet as a colored. The overall sound, even in piano area, it seems to me to be supported by a total of resonance; the dynamic range has gained wide - this is connected with the challenge of exploiting the newly acquired piano artistic quality.

I was very surprised. In the first trial, it was for me almost as if I was in another place, where I am indeed at home, where there but much better I like it ... I hear now a lot more into the distance.

The new sound ground in the orchestra pit of the Bern City Theatre has significantly improved sound quality and sustainable for all involved. The musicians among themselves can now hear a lot better, and the audience can now each instrument differ markedly. ...

Since the installation of the resonators I find it much easier on my instrument to intone demanding passages clean.

... I'd like to communicate in this way that we are very confident of your invention, the Respa plate .... has the sound of the instrument improved significantly in the difficult acoustic of our church, which is also by visitors to the services and concerts is perceived in our church ...

Of course, our orchestra played wonderfully, has the conductor found the right approach and characteristic style of the work, the basis of this activity, however, is to be found in our new Akkustikboden. We did not achieve the sonic realities of the effects described simply up before the summer. Yes, it sounds now transparent and powerful at the same time, yet it is practically never too loud!
Heiner Madl
Orchestra Director / Philharmonia Zurich
... The orchestral sound became more transparency and euphony that Streicher had a warmer, the sheet lost its sharpness. The Vesrständigungsprobleme on stage seemed solved. The audibility in the hall was amazingly balanced. Striking was the improved capacity of the tone of what the audience benefited on the rear seats. Herewith the results audibility in the different sections of the hall were improved to the public and more balanced. ...
Mathias Weigmann
Similarly, a violinist, is the open suddenly with a Stradivarius new perspectives, the Bern Symphony Orchestra would be able to leave for pastures new with the new sound ground in many ways: the compactness of the orchestral sound, the overtone range, at the same time, the transparency and the color palette would significantly improve.

By combining Christian Schmidt noble design and the ingenious acoustics, the Opera House for our concerts now has a very coherent framework, at the center of the orchestra, and nothing else. One could almost say that the entire stage becomes the instrument!
Andreas Homoki
Director of the Zurich Opera / Interview with Fabio Dietsche for MAG
... I notice especially that I the other instruments and voices more clearly but sometimes even louder hear ... It's much less queasy and dull, which of course is super ... the volume is easier to bear because it is different, rounder and defused! Thank you for your invention, it is now playing again beautiful in the ditch!
