Hello good folk. Shortly before Hurricane Sandy I posted on this forum seeking advice on a home vocal booth setup. Those who responded gave me the excellent advice of pointing me to Owens Corning 703, bass traps etc. I live in New York and my home was affected by the Hurricane so its taken a while for me to tell you how things are going. Attached is a read that I did in 4 different locations in my newly treated vocal booth. They are 4 quick reads edited back-to-back. I have some owens corning 703 and some auralex left over. Please listen to the file and tell me which of the 4 sounds the best or if you think the sound is good or if you think I can use even more oc 703 or auralex or if you think it doesnt sound good at all!! Thanks in advance.
4 or 5 times listening thru (just a pair of bx8 monitors where i am) i keep coming back to 1, maybe just because there was the least smacking sounds, but i'm trying to be obvective. 2 sounded weaker, distant even, as if you've leaned back a tad away from the mic. i found 3 a hair boomy, the presence being the most powerful here. 4 sounds the most like 1 imo, but becomes almost unusable if only for the mouth sounds (take a sip of water!)
i think they all sound great and certainly usable once cleaned up in the box. tell us the signal path if you don't mind?
edit: best wishes to you and everyone affected by the storm!
