I'm ben, and I just moved to a new appartment.
I'm a musician (like all of you too I guess) and I sing and play the guitar most of the times. I'm going to need a place to practise both at the same time without getting troubles with neighbours. I like experimenting with my voice and that can get quite loud, that's why I plan to make an ISOLATION BOOTH to practise.
Over the years I also started to produce music at home (without releasing it, it's only another big hobby of mine which I'm doing mostly for myself). Most of the music I produce involves samples and virtual instruments, nevertheless I still need to record some instruments like acoustic guitars and my vocals for example. That's why I need a PLACE TO RECORD VOCALS AND GUITAR too.
I know that you don't necessarely need a vocal booth to record. However, I feel much more confident singing my songs when I don't have to think about if the people in the hallway or my neighbours can hear me singing. So, I also want to record in this (isolation) booth.
I also know that the smaller the booth the harder it becomes to get a good recording sound because of the "boxiness". So my goal is it to have the booth as dry as possible. I can add room with reverb plugins later.
The next thing that makes everything more difficult is that I don't have very much space. Summarizing
: I need a booth where I can record vocals and acoustic guitar (without boxiness or other acoustic problems) and at the same time it has to isolate so it's MUCH quieter outside.
I already draw a little bit and wanted you to know if it's possible that way. (Attachments!)
The thicker walls on the outside should be completely sealed up and provide for ISOLATION. (which material???)
The thinner walls on the inside are at 6° angles (most of them) to avoid parallel walls and so they are for BETTER ACOUSTICS (which material? Wood? How thick?).
I already read in another forum that those thinner walls need to have maaaany holes of different sizes and afterwards you put absorbers (?) on these walls (= inside of the booth).
In between the two walls there will be some kind of material. I guess this material will be to improve sound quality also, since it doesn't isolate much. So it is also for BETTER ACOUSTICS.
The room has a height of 2,6 meters, so I will build the booth also almost that high. The ceiling inside will have an angle of 15° while the upper ceiling of the booth will be flat of course. In between those two ceilings there will also be some kind of material.
Inside there will be acoustic treatement too of course.
Those are my plans until now. Since I'm no expert I really need your help here. Please correct all those things I just said if they are not good for some kind of reason.
I'd like to put a window into the door. The door will not be a normal door of course. It only looks like it on the screenshots because of the software I used to create them.
I'd also like to make no kind of air supply (isolation!), I'd rather open the door more often.
Moreover I'd like to put a little TFT Monitor plus Mouse and Keyboard in it to control my DAW from inside the booth.
I hope I didn't forget to mention anything.
Your help would be awesome! I got the keys of the appartment yesterday and I can't wait to move in there but I first have to make a plan about the vocal booth so I can plan everything else afterwards so we can paint all the walls afterwards and so on. I'd like to do it the right way right at the beginning
So, the sooner I'm finished planning the booth the sooner I can move in.
And you can help me making it happen very soon
BIG THANKS in advance!!! (and sorry for my bad English)
