According to a survey conducted in November by VoiceOverExtra, Voice actors would like to own their own vocal booth. In fact, according to this survey, next to a microphone, a vocal booth or an enclosed booth is the next top gear on voice talent’s wish list.
So what’s stopping voice over actors from getting one? A lack of money and a lack of space. Randye Kaye, in her blog, “Vocal Booth on Tracks: An Option for Space Challenged Voice Talents,” said that her Vocal Booth on Tracks received an “A” and was very happy with it.
“First of all, let me clarify that in a perfect VO world I get a sound-PROOF booth â and perhaps someday I will. This is not a WhisperRoom, or StudioBricks booth and is not offered as such. This booth, however, delivers exactly what it promises. I love it.
Not in Their Budget
Not having the finances in their budget is a big reason why many voice actors reconsider purchasing a vocal booth. The expense of a full-size walk-in vocal booth is enough for some to reconsider and continue to rent studio space and time. Vocal booths can be an investment that not everyone in this industry is willing to make — especially those who work on a part-time basis or fairly new to the business.
Lack of Space for Vocal Booth
Space or lack of it is another reason why some may not purchase their own enclosed booth. Full-size vocal booths can sometimes be just too large in size for those who work in a city studio apartment or a small living area. Even those who work out of a larger area may not have the space to house a vocal booth.
Because of these reasons, voice actors resort to creating their own space in closets or corners in their homes. Sometimes these makeshift booths lead to unprofessional recordings, which can later result in an unhappy client, or even worse, a loss of a client.
Affordable New Vocal Booth Requires No Floor Space
Due to customers stories about the lack of space for a vocal booth (although they want one dearly), VocalBoothToGo.com has developed a vocal booth, called Vocal Booth on Tracks, that suspends from tracks mounted from either the ceiling, wall or both. The voice actor, recording artist or engineer can create any shape of an enclosed booth, utilizing corners or surrounding their present work area — and not take up any floor space at all. The sound absorption walls made out of acoustic blankets — can simply be closed and opened, much like a curtain.
This vocal booth is budget friendly too — costing just under $100 (regular price)! And, if you already own acoustic blankets, such as the Producer’s Choice Acoustic Blankets with Grommets, then you can just get the Track Kit to create your very own.
Now, there is no reason not own your own vocal booth . . . .
