    you'd be better off just recording in an open space with some treatment than to try and make a small booth. You would have some serious low end acoustic problems.

    ^ word. i used to have a little booth in the corner, and i finally just got some acoustic treatment in the room and opened things up... its not the same as having a professional booth, but its much better than a small homemade one.

    Here's some acoustic panels for a good price they can help, but they won't take care of the low end, you'll have to use some bass traps.

    Glenn's (GIK) units *are* bass traps. It's Illbruck and Auralex (etc.) that don't touch the lows.

    Problem with a "closet" type room is that it's so small, once you get enough traps in there to handle the horrifically terrible resonances, there's no room to do simple things...

    Like standing.

    Otherwise, you're normally MUCH better off treating a corner well and using gobos OUT from the corner and singing into them. The (lower) lows will pass through into the room and disperse to a point before bouncing back (weaker) as opposed to trapping them in a tiny space (at a higher frequency).

    do they sell those in europe, i'm busy with a small home studio of a friend who could use some of those glenns.

    the issue there is 220 till 240 hz, so they will fit the need i think.

    is in irregular plywood, raw old brickstones full of damage holes (partly covered by the plywood), and 2 concrete walls we need to work on. the floor is thik carpet, and the ceiling is an old wood construction (the former floor of the floor above, but they made a concrete new floor above it in a renovation.)

    it's a souterrain in a medieval house in a very quiet street in my town we using.
