I don’t know about you, but being quarantined because of COVID-19 has made me hyper-productive. I’m checking things off of my to-do list that have been there for a year or more and I’m loving it! One of the things on that list has been to build an at-home vocal booth so I can take voiceover jobs and never have to leave my house. I like to stay in my sweats. mmmkay!
An at-home vocal booth is great for content creators. It’s the sure-fire way to get clean audio that sounds crisp and professional every single time you have to record vocals. It ups the game so to speak.
In the video, I take you through the way I set up the vocal booth including the DAW that I use to record.
WHAT YOU NEED FOR THIS VOCAL BOOTH SET UP
RODE NT1A MICROPHONE – This is the microphone that you see in the video. It’s great and produces beautiful sound. *** The link is to a kit that has 2 microphones in it. My kit had sold out. Look for another option if you only need one microphone.***
AURAY SHIELD – Reduces ambient sound like a boss!
TRIPOD STAND – This is what you attach the shield and the microphone to
FOCUSRITE SCARLETT 2i2 AUDIO INTERFACE – Creates a very crisp, clear sound.
SADDLEBAGS – These can be attached to the tripod stand to keep it from tipping over from the weight of the shield.
AQUARIUM GRAVEL – For the saddlebags. Gotta give them some weight!
ACOUSTIC PANELS – These panels help to keep outside ambient sounds out of your recording booth.
A to C USB CORD – This is the cord that will connect your audio interface to your computer.
ABLETON LIVE 10 LITE – This is the DAW (digital audio workstation) that I use to edit my audio.

As you’re setting up any new equipment that you’ll be working with, be sure to choose items that you like. What I’ve provided in this post is merely my suggestion on what to use because it’s working well for me. I encourage you to test microphones, audio interfaces and everything else in between until you find the setup that works to your liking. I hope your vocal booth setup is easy and fun! Enjoy!
