    or would it cut out too much treble out of my voice?

    Can do the trick but it depends on the room and its acoustic dynamics. A booth provides dampening and isolation but how much you need depends on the evironment. Its cheap so why not try it (that cant cost more than $20-50) It will also come down to your equipment and how good your Mic/Audio Card set up is. If it cuts too much treble (which I doubt) just move back (mic) from the blanket.

    I think it would be good as long as your room is treated properly. Those blankets can suck up the high end, but you want to make sure the low end is taken care of.

    I give this a try ... do y'all think this will keep down the noise while recording? (stop the neighbors from complaining?)

    As long as you make sure the room itself is treated, then it should help with the vocal recording, but it won't stop the neighbors from yelling. You need to sound proof the room for that.

    Treat the room (low-end first), and fix what's making the noise. If you don't know what or how much noise you have, open up a mic in a headphone mix and turn it up. If you can't find the noise, move the mic around and listen for the noise to get louder or softer.

    In a pinch, I have gotten away with recording vocals in my control room, no vocal booth, no blankets. My computer is quiet, and nothing else really makes noise aside from people (I limit to just me and the talent, no noisy clothing). Then set up a pre- and post-roll so your keystroke or mouse click isn't recorded...

    If it sounds good, it *is* good.

    One side is open. I would think you would put it behind you and face the center of the room.
