Notes from Alexander Perls regarding the VocalBox:
How does a producer record vocals in a modern music studio? Vocals are usually close-miked, so a tiny bit of background noise isn’t a problem — the primary problem is to properly deaden the sound.
A “room” style vocal booth is overkill, and ventilation is always a problem, so you have to install a fan, and then the fan makes noise. And it takes up half your studio.
The other option is a cheap thing from China like the reflexion filter. Anyone who has actually used one knows that it doesn’t do much for reflection deadening — it doesn’t deal at all with sound that goes to the floor or goes to the ceiling. And adjusting it so you are “close enough” to the filter never works quite right. And there’s no window, so if you are the singer, it’s impossible to see your computer screen, or if you’re working with another vocalist, they can’t see you while they sing.
So we decided to create a no-compromise luxury solution, aimed at the established music producer, voiceover artist, or serious hobbyist. The VocalBox doubles as a microphone stand. It has a plexiglass window, in case you want your vocalist to be able to see you. Or for maximum deadening, simple cover the plexiglass with the included velcro-mounted foam rectangle.
The vocalbox is studio-tested, and adjusts easily for vocalists between 4 feet and 7 feet in height.
I highly recommend this piece of equipment to complement any project studio.
