Cryocycle Music

Cryocycle treated instruments give a more mellow sound

Sound improvement to Instruments

From the wind instruments of a Philharmonic Orchestra to the strings of Rock Band's guitars and the brass instruments of jazz and concert musicians, Cryocycle is providing musicians and the musical industry with applications and changes that previously took years of seasoning. 

Recognition that brass instruments become sonically seasoned over time is nothing new to musicians and the music industry. These years of seasoning enhance clarity, tonal quality along with playability of the instrument, quite simply it becomes easier and better to play.

With the use of the patented Cryocycle treatment system a saxophone, trumpet or horn can be compared to an aged and sonically seasoned instrument in just 24 hours.

It is certain that instruments like flutes, French horns, trombones, euphoniums and saxophones once subjected to the harmonic influences of the Cryocycle process all benefit with a mellow and smoother sound.  Metal strings and components for guitars and other string instruments, especially piano's increase in both sound benefits and strength.Cryocycle has treatred some of the best orchestra's in the world







Improvement to Audio Components

While Cryogenic treatment is typically used for enhancing strength and durability to ferrous metals (usually steel). The process is known to convert a soft, unstable carbon impurity known as Austenite to a more stable form called Martensite. The material is then heated to form a "tempered" form of Martensite.  This results in extremely fine grained, evenly distributed carbides in the steel making a stronger, and more durable material.neo2611.4

While there is no significant amount of Austenite or Martensite in many of the materials used for audio. It is apparent that the crystal boundaries and/or impurities in the metals used for audio are changed.  In addition the dielectric material is also affected. The result of the process not only be modifies the electrical characteristics of the materials, but also alters the physical and mechanical properties of the metal. This explains why a French Horn has a different resonant quality after treatment than before treatment.

But what about audio?

  • Stock audio components and wires contain internal stresses that degrade their sonic performance. Not only is the raw stock subject to residual stresses from fabrication, the additional steps in the manufacturing process produce additional stress lines.
  • Cryogenic treatment relieves these stresses and makes audio equipment perform beyond the original manufacturers’ specifications. The benefits of cryogenically treated audio components can be heard while playing or listening to all kinds of music. For instance:
  • Cryogenically treated cords and cables provide an extended dynamic range. In particular, high frequency range notes are much clearer and display less distortion at these highs. Measurements  of cryo treated wires show that  electrical and signal resistance is reduced after cryogenic treatment.
  • Cryogenically treated amplifiers improve auditory saturation and lower the rate of distortion. Treated amplifiers offer improvements in harmonics as well as a much richer overdrive. Lastly, longevity should be increased as well.
  • Single coil pickups that undergo cryogenic treatment yield an increase in output, and the tone will become smoother. The level of sustain also increases after cryogenic treatment. The change in overtones allows for a well rounded dynamic sound. Cryogenically treated pickups produce faster response time and feel.

Additional benefits of audio treatment include;

  •     Expanded dynamic range
  •     A more refined and smoother high frequency range
  •     Increased bass articulation
  •     A deeper and more focused  three dimensional sounds
  •     Lowered dynamic noise floor
  •     Reduced micro phonics
  •     Less distortion in vocals  
  •     Lower operating temperatures  and an extended lifetime
