Many members are requesting Vocal Booth designs.

Here's a design to fit into the corner of your room. The aircon ducting is an option.

Great design. Request you to please list the materials used and the adequate dimensions of the vocal booth. I would like to build the same for my voiceover work. Thanks

Bikky - you can use the tape measure in sketchup to get all the measurements.

Funky Animal - yes its cloth stretched over pine frames.

Hey John, I'm curious, doesn't the place where there is exposed frame need to be covered up with the double gyprock? or does that bit of the frame provide enough isolation.

Thanks,
-Chris

Chris all the gyprock is on the outside - I'm using the cavity for acoustic treatment.

oh - I see what you mean - well you could cover it if you felt you needed the extra isolation. The design is really for the home studio where it could be pulled apart and moved if necessary.

Okay, that totally makes sense.

Thank you John.

You know, John, that is one spot that I questioned in general. Building the inside-out walls seems to be a daunting task, in attempting to seal all the areas together after you build the sections. In order to be able to seal those corners, you need to be able to get to them - which would mean that you would need to leave enough space between your outer leaf ceiling and your inside-out ceiling to be able to crawl in and seal the corners, or you would have to leave enough space around your entire room to get to those edges.

In building the inside-out walls similarly to the way that you show in this small vocal booth, with the gypsum sealed against an outer reinforced frame, then sealing the framework together in the corners using acoustic caulk and either carriage bolting (or lagging) those together to get the lumber tight, how much isolation are you truly losing? It would stand to reason that you could still easily get a sealed area, and the lumber should be dense enough to act as your leaf....

....or am I missing something?

would this design work for a drum booth ? my problem with a drum booth is the ceiling height, i just have 6.7 and the minimum height for my lenght to stand straight up is 6.06, so insulating for ceiling and floor is just 0.65...can it be done with some insulating result ? its a basement room.

Do you just want to practice in their, or do you want to record? I very much doubt it would work for recording: That's way too low to even get overhead mics in decently, without even thinking about the terrible reflections and comb filtering you'd get off the ceiling with the mics right up against it.... Perhaps for practice, but not for recording. And it would be an extremely tight fit anyway, even for a very small drum kit! Don't think you could fit much in there at all... Maybe a snare and a hi-hat, along with your seat!

It's too small for a drum booth - you couldn't fit a kit inside.
