Vocal Booth or No Vocal Booth?
Hey guys, I’m after your thoughts on whether or not I should put a booth in my small studio & if so what is the best approach for vocal booth acoustics treatment
I inherited the space with the frame built and the dimensions are 4.5 ft by 5.2 ft and 8ft high whilst the room dimensions are 15ft (including the 4.5ft booth in the corner) by 9.3ft and 8ft high. I could easily take the frame for the booth down if necessary as I read on real traps that in most small studio's it is better to not build one, however, I do want good isolation so my neighbours aren’t disturbed when I have a powerful singer recording vocals or a resonant Cello for instance.
So with the given dimensions, and isolation requirements, would you guys suggest building one or focus on isolating the control room and using a portable booth using panels like the real traps PVB behind the listening position in the corner?
As a side note? How would I build my own panelled booth like PVB-I can’t find them in the UK and shipping is expensive
