I will master and send to ACX again
ACX wants all your chapters to match.
I did the record early morning when it was really quiet.
That leaves room echoes.

I can give you the basic ideas very fast.

1/2" PVC Plastic Pipe.
72" by 80" Heavy Furniture Moving Pads.
Four PVC Corners.

Cut the pipe into 8 lengths, each 20". Push the pipe and corners together into a square cave.

Throw furniture moving pad over it to cover top and three sides. Put the microphone in the middle and talk into the open side.

-- Next improvement is two pads and lay one pad on the table under the cave. You should do this one!

-- Next improvement is three pads and throw two pads over the cave.

-- Next improvement is four pads and hang one pad on the wall behind you.

And that's as good as you can do with plastic pipes and furniture moving pads.

You are making one of these.

One poster tried blankets for his bed and it didn't work right. They're not heavy enough.

Kitchen Table Sound Studio
Revision 1

This is the parts list for the studio. Each of those eight plastic pipes is 20 inches long. No special parts or celebrities. They're half-inch PVC. Four corners, four end-caps and two heavy 80" x 72" furniture moving blankets.

This is the frame construction. No glue.

This is the finished studio. The pipes have end caps and the table has a cover, folded over.

It's pretty amazing. You can stick your head in there and listen to the world vanish. That's the end of room echoes.

It's not soundproof. It's sound resistant. I can still hear the house construction next door. Hard to ignore that jackhammer.

The pads are 72" by 80". They're heavy. Each of mine weighs 17 lbs, but the more common 6 lb to 8 lb will work. Lighter is not good. We're not after comfort or low shipping weight. We're after dead weight. The sound has to move those pads to get in.

No glue. When you're done using it and you need the kitchen table back, knock it apart and slide it under your bed.

Pipe notes: My Home Depot will sell me 24" PVC pipes pre-cut. You can use those and not have to cut anything, but you have to be careful to place the top pad so the 80" dimension is sideways. The top pad must meet the table on all three sides.

It made me pretty pleased to see the success. Which mic did you end up purchasing?
