"Get the benefits of an experienced voice with a studio & enhanced production skills"
Thank you for taking the time to check out my studio diaries detailing the process of converting my garage to a recording studio. Now the main room is on its way, our attention switches to building the VO booth.
Building the VO Booth Pt. 1
When it came to constructing the VO booth walls, various options were considered. As space is very much at a premium, I needed to achieve the perfect sounding area that would be flexible enough for a range of recording situations with a reasonable footprint. I opted for a diamond build, which worked well within the main room, creating a nice flow from door to door.
After grabbing some some advice from my friend and esteemed colleague Natalie Cooper who had a similar installation, we concluded that a three-layer wall design would be the most effective and space efficient way to go forward. This included 2 laters of standard 9mm drywall separated by a layer of Green Glue. This sound deadening compound is used to create a small air gap which is a great insulator. On the outer section, a layer of Tecsound will be added. The heavy putty-like material will also be used to bridge all joints and added to the base. The outer shell will be made up of 12mm sound rated drywall with all gaps and edges filled and finished for painting. Inside, a double layer of stud, will be filled with 2 layers of rockwool running vertically and horizontally. The booth will be completely freestanding to avoid any vibration from the house walls.
Due to the size of the build and the work required, assembly of the framework and boarding would be done be at the workshop before being transported in sections and re-assembled at the studio.
