Vocal booth set up help!

Hello! I am setting up a place to record in my basement. I want to know if my idea is flawed and going to have negative repercussions when it’s all put together. I know there are gives and takes of everything and part of the reason I’m setting it up this way is necessity however if it’s going to cause more issues than help I would like to avoid it.

Builder recommendations in Eastern US-CT: vocal isolation booth, ~7'x12'


I have an 8'x12' corner available within a larger room (with 8' ceiling) for a vocal isolation booth.

Any builder recommendations in the Eastern Connecticut area who can get it quiet in there? I'm on the fence about doing it myself - if I can avoid construction I'd like to.


vocal booth on top of existing wood floors



I am building a vocal booth in my apartment, on top of an existing wood finished floor that is not insulated and rather old.

I originally built a plywwood deck on top of 2X4 joists decoupled with u boats, but after reading Rod Gervais' book decided to dismantle the entire floor and just double up on the plywood.

Acoustic wall treatment or portable vocal booth (i.e. Auralex MaxWall)?


I would like to start recording vocals (just for fun/hobby) and I want to get the best sound possible. The instrumental tracks have already been mixed, I just need to add vocals. I've read some of the threads here, and I know that preventing unwanted reflections is ONE of the key elements paramount to a good recording.

Vocal Booth? Or is a portable Reflection Filter enough?


Need some opinions from the pros. Just starting out and trying to decide where to put my mic. Have not tested my room yet to determine where to place. Very low budget so need a area that would work the cheapest. So should I use my small closet (smallest wall surface area to treat)? Or would I place in middle of room (fairly large room)? Or do I place mic in corner of room?

Cedar Lined Vocal Booth


Pardon me for stickin' my nose in down here in vocal land, but I have a pretty good reason for invading. :)

In the process of building my studio, I'm just about ready to work on the isolation booth finishes. I have enough lumber to "do" the booth in eastern red cedar. I chose the cedar for the color and vibe I think it conveys. It certainly is some pretty wood, IMHO.
