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

Member for

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.

Temporary Isolation Booth for Vocals

Hey all,

I live in a house (separate from my studio) that I rent out with 4 other guys.
This is an old house with paper thin walls where everyone can hear everything going on throughout the house.
So needless to say there's no privacy for experimenting with recording vocals for demos so I need a cheap simple solution to isolate vocals (inside my bedroom) so I can sing in chest voice without the house hearing me.

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. The room I have is probably awful (sonically) being that one wall is almost entirely mirrored glass, but I dont I thought I'd post the dimensions and a few pics to get some advice on the best (and most cost-effective) way to get a good vocal 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? Or would one of those reflection filter shield thingamajigs work fine?
Like these ones,

I did some searching around and didn't seem to find a specific post on this, or if there is, I have found it impossible to find.

Anyways, I have just spent a fortune working on a new studio. I am as much as a newbie as I can get. However, being in the studio many times with my previous band including the machine shop with producer Gene 'Machine' Freeman for a month I have seen a bunch to start building my own studio.

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.

Most of the time, the booth will not be used for vocals, other than say scratch vocals or VO work.

Question pertaining to DIY vocal isolation booth.

Member for

Cutting out background noises isn't really my concern. I write/record heavy metal, and basically I need to yell without my room mates and/or neighbors calling the cops on me. So I would like to build a small sound isolation booth. I was thinking about 3' X 3' X 6', with hinges between the walls so it would be easy to break down, and thus portable. If I built it with plywood for the walls, with a few inches of appropriate foam on the inside (and on the ceiling of course), would this do the job of cutting down sound levels?
