Advice for a vocal booth

Hey guys,

I want to build a vocal booth and have some questions about the acoustics as i have never delved into this territory.

Let me start by saying,that i would much prefer to treat the room,but that is out of the question, as i am renting the place. So the booth seems the best option right now. I experimented with recording under a duvet, but it sounded horrible, muddy, and with too much low end.

Materials:

Stone Wool or Acoustic foam?

I will build the frames from wood, but i am not sure,which material to use for the treatment and how much of it. I am afraid the recordings will have an excessive amount of low frequencies if i overdo it, or it will sound "dead".

Size?

The panels will be 2 x 2m height and 1 meter width and the other 2 -
2m height and 2 meters width.

So my questions are-

1.Which material should i use- Stone wool or acoustic foam?
2.How much surface should i cover ? All of it?
3.Is the size of the booth good for recording?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you have any other suggestions,that would be greatly appreciated.

Your best advice is to go to a studio that already has this. If you can not afford the cost of hiring out a studio for a few hours you certainly can not afford the cost to properly fix your room. It's a lot cheaper and cost effective to hire out a studio.
