Sound Recording Room – Sound Absoption

It’s been nearly a year since I built my sound recording room / foley room in the garage. Now that I’ve launched the new web site, the USFX 1.3 update, and 4 sound design packs, I finally found time to edit some video footage I shot during the room build process to compare the effectiveness of different steps in treating the room to absorb sounds and make it as close to a dead room as I could.

There is a short version of the video which just contains the hand clap comparison for each step.

If you want more detail of what, how, and why – check out the full video below. I hope you find it useful if you are considering building a sound recording or foley room. If you are just here for curiosity of what goes into recording dry sounds I hope you find it interesting. Give me a shout if you have any questions =)
