Properly Provide Ventilation in Recording Booths

When a singer or rapper goes into the small recording studio booth, you go in with lots of energy and emotion. All of that energy starts to build and gets sealed in by all of the sound isolating walls and hot equipment. What people always fail to realize is the proper ways of installing and setting up ventilation to keep the booth safe enough to have someone in for long periods of times.

For example, when you have one of the best rappers out now, you wonder how many hours they spent inside the small recording booth. Kendrick Lamar recently came out with a song where he was featured with Big Sean and Jay Electronica. The song Control came out and was a big news after Kendrick had some words for all the rappers he is competing with. He calls out Drake, Wale, A$AP Rocky, J.Cole, and much more.  Kendrick’s attitude was to call everyone out and see who wants to respond. Hip hop will never be the same.

So for instance, you get that track in which Kendrick murders everyone as far as in calling people out for a great deal of time.  This can take up many takes, and also all the built up energy makes for a sweaty booth.

The proper way of setting up the booth would be to place closer to the wall in the corner. It is also important to test out the sound quality every so often in order to keep it sound proof. The whole time you can make sure that there is no leak in sound. vocal-booth


One the most challenging aspects of building an isolation room is ventilation. Small rooms tend to get warm very quickly and keeping fresh air in the room will keep the talent happy and alert. The best way to introduce air flow is to build air intake and outflow mazes whereby fresh air would enter down low at floor level and exit high up at the ceiling using natural convection to aid the system. Two or three low-speed fans with a larger out-flow port typically works better than one powerful fan that must whirr at a higher speed
