Ever have a need for a portable sound booth for Voice work on the road?
I travel a bit, and have need for a small, easily transportable microphone reflection method to record dry voice (aka a portable voice over sound booth!)
It works fine for producing a “dead” area for your mic from an absorption standpoint.
Quality recordings on the go and on the cheap.
How I built my own Portable Sound Booth
I found a collapsible canvas 10″ x 14″ cloth-covered storage box at Target for around $10.00, had some extra Auralex studio foam, and put it together. Here it is assembled, which takes about :60 set up time from bag to record mode.
Note: You don’t stick your head into the box to record. Just set up your copy stand on the table, and face the mic, which sits inside the porta-booth.

Portable Sound Booth Materials
The container collapses flat, and I “nested” the foam pieces so they take up less space.
Portable Sound Booth Packed and Ready to Travel!
Everything fits into a small comforter zipper bag with built-in carrying handle. Sure beats sitting in an uncomfortable self-made fort made of pillows and comforters in hotel rooms while I am on the road. SWEET!
