    Question

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I always see these ads in the back of recording magazines for these portable isolation booths aka whisper rooms...Has anybody have one? I think the cheapest one runs for about $1800. Would it be cheaper if I made my own? What type of materials would I use?

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Go to vocalbooth.com. This guy's products are much less expensive than Whisperrooms.

    Thumbs down

    Those pre built gimmicks are just glorified DIYers trying to scam some money out of lazy people like us all. go to Home Depot, or homedepot.com if you must do it all on the net and make one. someone a while back made one using 4 doors hinged together. Seems like a pretty good idea.

    Cool

    I was at Home Depot this evening and bought all the wood, hinges, screws, insulation, brackets, liquid nails, plexiglass and trim to construct my own whisperroom/vocalbooth.
    Total cost: $225
    Size: 72" x 45" x 80" high

    Kristian is right. You can do it a helluva lot easier and cheaper on your own. It's common sense stuff.

    I took the double sliding doors off of the closet in my studio, (you know.. the ones that always fall off the track ANYWAY) and put up 1 wall to make an iso booth.
    1 door and window were also used though I chose a double pane glass and it sure is a hummer! Man! This window talks! I am able to beat the noise by inserting a thick pad (simliar to the wallcovering) into the window frame. No view, but thats what the videocamera is for.
    and btw... I got a lot of inf on how to deaden sound from the net. I went to many companies who sell these products and learned how sound travels through walls and how to reduce volume vs. reflections. May not be top notch, but it beats the hell out of the bathroom.

    I want one of those things, but unfortunatly, I don't have space, and like most of us Home Rec.ers I have more time then money. Which is probobly why we should all stop being lazy, and save cash$$$.
