Listening is a journey...
I actually purchased a great booth from Drum Perfect. The booth is fantastic. They don't sell it with ventilation, so that may be uncomfortable for your purposes, but the newer versions of the booth I bought have more materials than before, are apparently more soundproof, and are really solidly built.
It blocks sound really well, and more importantly, it SOUNDS GOOD inside. No "boxiness" that can easily come from so many ready-made booth solutions.
The folks at Drum Perfect are really, very nice too. It's a family run company, they build everything in their shop in Arizona, and take a personal interest in your needs.
If you contact them, tell Chris that i said hi!
Oh, by the way...the cost for a 4' x 4' booth ( that's INTERNAL dimensions ), is $1549!
I don't like to record sitting down, but I have an advantage to being only 5'2": I was able to take an MT 40lb "Fresh Step" cat litter bucket, turn it upside-down, and put my porta-booth on it. It looks quite silly, but it works!
I agree with others who have posted, that it's very difficult to see your copy, but it does indeed work!
I'm now trying to deal with 'window' noise. I'm thinking 2 1/2" acoustic foam, but I've also heard that Corning 703 rigid fiberglass covered with burlap or speaker cloth works well, too.
Any thoughts out there? I'm new to the group, so if a solution had been posted in the past, I apologize for the repeat.
There's a time and place for everything. The porto Booth is good for the environment it was designed for. (See below) The New H2 Porto-Booth, according to Harlan, is good enough for everyday use. If that s true (I can't wait to try it) It could be a very positive development for home studio technology! Everything has limitations.
I use the reflexion in my studio as extreme reflection killing overkill. Personally, I think all the stuff people talk about in here is overkill. Keeping things simple is very easy these days with the compact digital devices that have come on the market in the past two years.
Think about where is was designed to be used, think about that space, and then apply that same concept into your home space. OK I'm being too Socratic... What do you think I'm saying?
