    Check any potential sites for RFI sources. A cell phone tower 100mtrs away is probably no problem but 10mtrs or less could be!

    Farm buildings are often isolated but not good if farmer Giles starts TIG welding. Similar serious mains borne and radiated electrical energies can be hard/impossible to keep out.

    A good test is to take a guitar amp and guitar to any site you view. Plug in and set the volume to a tad under feedback and leave buzzing (they always do, a bit) while you wander around and take measurements etc. Any loud farty noises or actual radio programme indicates you could have a big RFI problem. A valve amp such as a Fender Champ is best but any decent amp will do at a pinch.

    You should also check that the mains electrics are in good condition. SAFE! You also need a landline that can give you a fair internet speed. Wireless kit and studios often do not a happy marriage make.

    Dave.

    Vocal booth? Don't unless you can make it completely dead which effectively means it starts twice the finished size and is lined with huge amounts of absorbers. The best option, outlined here at HR many times is to construct a "tent" of duvets, blankets, whatever and keep room sounds from getting back into the mic. As this is a stepup from the bedroom scenario you can make something better in the form of movable frames. Called "Gobos" these are also useful for breaking up room reflections (and you can build mains diss strips and/or XLR boxes in them)

    Looks ok. It all depends on your cash and if the neighbours/surrounding area make noise that will affect you.
