Vocal Booths: Do you need one (if the room is already treated)?

setting up a new studio

If you are into recording vocals, I’m sure the question of setting up a vocal booth has crossed your mind.

But then again maybe you’ve already done a significant amount of treatment with bass traps and panels in your room, and so you are wondering:

Is it actually worth it?

Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of vocal booths.

In essence you are trying to build a tiny room in a room. And with come ALL the problems that you’d expect from such a venture.

But ultimately there are two questions that you have to ask yourself to decide whether you need a vocal booth.

That’s what I want to walk you through in this week’s video.
