Before Building a Voice Over Booth
Jan 19 2013
Determine how large your voice over booth must be, and if possible, make it at least 50% larger. (One day you‘ll thank yourself.) Additionally consider how many people will record simultaneously in the booth (Will you record dialogues? Will you record foley sfx (which takes up a lot of room)? Will you need a video/computer monitor to view while recording? Will you want a table for voice over voice over scripts, water, etc.?). Be sure to account for the microphone and music stands. Will you stand or sit? (Sitting down is common for long recordings, such as audiobook recordings, but takes up more floor space.) Do you have claustrophobia? If so, go with a larger booth. Will you rent out your booth to musicians (who need larger spaces for guitars, keyboards, etc.)? Think about these things before you build.
