    You're high as a kite dude. Ill tell you why.


    Pro Auralex foam (www.auralexaccoustics.com) is designed SPECIFINCALLY to absorb sound. What you have in your booth was designed to CUSHION a human body. Although to your hands and your eyes, it appears to be the same material - IT IS NOT. Period. Auralex foam has minuature sound pockets that are designed to reflect reverberation and slapback. The bedding you used, might work effectively in a rat cage, but not a sound booth. At least not a TRUE one anyways.

    I dont knock your effort. I see you put some work into it. But get your facts straight, before I start posting links that make everything you just said look ultra retarded. I've done my homework. I know.

    Also - Did you give any regard to sound dimension and get any actual demographics from a trusted sound source before designing this booth? I mean sure, its wooden box - But does the design impliment any proven plan to be effective as an isolated accoustic environment?

    Not trying to come off as a dick. But honestly, you know only as much about the real procedure for building a booth as you let these people believe. Ill Wayz is totally right. If you're gonna take the time to build a booth, do it right - and use pro materials.

    Your post was a good waste of space...

    I didn't say it was the same as your prescious Aurelex Sound Absorbtion Material...

    I said it was as good as the "studio foam" that is made out of polyurethane...you know...the stuff used in a lot of studio's...

    Aurelex is an advancement...not everyone uses it...and not everyone used to use it.

    anyway...the 4X6 box is the standard size for a vocal booth...4X4 is the compact version...and bigger versions aren't boxes...

    thanks anyway though.

    lol...what do you think, it makes me sound different??? Its to kill the echo and reverb...thats what it did...

    there would be no way for you to hear the difference unless you listened to the acapella's.

    I'm not sure I follow your logic. You did all of this to kill echos - but you're saying it won't effect your end result? WTF? Why bother?

    no, you wont notice it...that doesnt mean i dont notice it...and it doesnt mean the sound isnt cleaner...

    obviously you know nothing about making music...the cleaner the original, the cleaner the end result...

    What...you think that because studio's have vocal booths...thats the reason their tracks are magically spectacular???? Lol...keep learning kid.

    I wanted to up this and ask a few questions.

    I am fixing to embark on building my own booth, but I am doing the real deal with the room within a room insulation and pro studio foam, but my question is...

    ...without using the profoam, and the single wall, how did it all turn out? Have you had any problems? Answer truthfully please, don't lie simply because its your booth and you don't want to sound like less of a pro or whatever, this is for the learning experience of all of us.

    Any problems with the way you built? What do you LIKE about it. Any kind of info since you've had this booth for quite a while, help me learn, teach me, so i can not make mistakes, and i can do whats good when i build my booth.

    THANKS.
