Sean Sorrentino

Sean Sorrentino won’t ever again have to sit on a borrowed hotel luggage rack converted to a comforter-covered tent to get a good audio recording. Today, Sean, a podcaster, uses the Carry-On Vocal Booth Pro when he travels for his day job and needs to record on the road. Like many podcasters, Sean creates podcasts as a hobby. But a serious one. He and his friend, Adam, are the show hosts and five friends contribute to it. They have podcasted weekly for more than 85 weeks on topics that appeal to people who are interested in firearms.

Before he bought the Carry-On Vocal Booth Pro, and when he was not on the road, Sean recorded in a 10 x 11-foot office he shared with his wife, who was often relegated to sit on the sofa to work on her computer. He was fortunate, he says, because there are lots of books lining the office walls, so there was “accidental” decent audio quality.  

None of the podcast team live near one another, yet they all submit audio to Sean, who edits it and puts it together for the show. They all provide him with varying audio quality. After all, as hobbyists, they’re not often inclined to make large investments on expensive professional equipment. In addition, some contributors were “recording in places that were just not conducive to good audio quality,” he says.

Erin, for instance, records a segment on blue collar prepping, seeking the most cost-effective way to perform essential tasks.  She’s also the current worst offender in the bad audio sweepstakes, Sean says with a hint of sarcasm. When she recorded her portions of the podcast, her house, filled with two dogs and two parents who like to watch television with the volume turned up, didn’t cut it. So she went to the office of a nearby church to record. Here, she would “build a little fort out of blankets” —clearly a widespread jerry-rig solution in the industry—to help improve the audio quality. But even with that invention, there was a terrible echo. Sean was trying to figure out how to get Erin out from under the blankets and get good audio from her, too. It was clear they didn’t have $5,000 for an audio booth. And since all the seven people on the podcast live far from one another, they wouldn’t be recording in a central location, anyway, so they’d need multiple expensive pieces of equipment to do it properly.

Sean, who’s buying a new house, stumbled upon VocalBoothToGo when searching for solutions for his new house that would allow him to soundproof the walls without having to use the space for books. He looked at several products, including the tracking booth. He sent a link to Erin and she posted it on Facebook, noting it would be a great gift for her upcoming birthday. A week later, her fans and friends had raised the money for the Pro model, which comes with the microphone stand and another stand that allows her to put her computer tablet with show notes nearby (the podcast is heavily scripted). Once Erin received the Pro, she watched a video on how it works. They’re still tinkering with where she should stand to get the best audio without getting bounce off the back wall or too much noise from the room in which she’s set up.

Once she shared the audio she’d recorded in the Pro, people said they hadn’t noticed the echo she’d had until it was gone.  Sean, however, had noticed it. He listens to every piece of audio at least four times. With the Pro, Sean jokes, it didn’t sound like Erin was recording in a cave in Tora Bora.

When Sean witnessed the audio improvements Erin experienced with the Pro, he brought himself one immediately.

Sean believes the Pro’s portability make it very useful for podcasters who travel, especially at large events where podcasters may be competing for quiet in a large media room, like he, Adam and Erin had to do while sharing a single microphone at a large show last year. He believes in it so much, in fact, the show focused its Plug of the Week on the Carry-On Vocal Booth Pro (http://vocalboothtogo.com/product/carry-on-vocal-booth-pro-6/) and Erin offered a review and a thank you to those who helped her acquire the Pro (http://lurkingrhythmically.blogspot.com/2016/03/vocal-booth-pro-to-go-thank-you-and.html).

Sound ART Acoustic Room Treatment

With many audio editing platforms available today, recording can be done in the comfort of your own home, although it is not as easy as buying a microphone and pressing “Record”.  Room acoustics are paramount. Every professional recording studio is fine-tuned to get the best sound possible.  It requires expertise and costs thousands of dollars to do a proper job in acoustic room treatment.  Yet in-home audio recording studios this often underestimated.  It is much more fun to talk about expensive mics, EQ (equalizers) and latest software that “removes” noise and optimizes your tracks all by itself.

Traveling Voice Over Using VocalBoothToGo.Com

Dean Wendt on the Quality of VocalBoothToGo Products and Customer Service

If there’s one thing Dean Wendt knows—really knows—it’s sound. You may know Dean Wendt as the voice of Barney, the iconic purple dinosaur from Barney & Friends. Yes, the voice that most of us parents remember oh so very well. If your kids were anything like mine we must have watched the shows on a constant loop for most of their pre-k and kindergarten days. That is why I for one was excited in his use of VocalBoothToGo.Com’s products. A voice I had become all too familiar with over the years was using OUR products. How cool is that!

Dean had tried lots of acoustic solutions and portable vocal booths throughout his career. But when he stumbled upon VocalBoothToGo.com he knew he had a winner. He quickly became a huge fan of the Carry-On Vocal Booth to GO series. The carry on was able to rid him of annoying reverberations that were wreaking havoc on his recordings, a problem which he had not been able to find a solution for until now.

“I’ve pretty much bought all the stuff Adil has,” Dean says of VocalBoothToGo’s owner, Adil Aliev (talk about literally putting your money where your mouth is!). “It’s really great stuff.”

Dean had been looking for products he could use to record that would ensure high quality audio that’s when he came upon VocalBoothToGo. Excited to see the line of products we had to offer; but skeptical to their efficiency, Dean decided to start off by renting a Portable Acoustic vocal booth (AVB-33) and used it to do commercial voiceover work for a week while he was on the road. And the rest is history! Blown away by the sound quality and its ease of use and portability Dean became a proud VocalBoothtoGo.Com supporter.

Topping off his order experience Dean praised the customer support he received when placing his order. From all his preorder questions to his feedback after his rental VocalBoothtoGo.Com Owner; Adil, answered all his questions and even got some great ideas on how to improve some of the products that were later implemented in the latest edition “Carry on Vocal Booth 2.o”  which Dean is currently using today.

We are proud to offer such unique and amazing products. Helping the busy, traveling, always on the go voice actor has become our specialty. We offer the BEST in Affordable, PORTABLE acoustic solutions.  And you can always count on us to provide incredible customer service and support provided by REAL people (No computerized voices over here) 7 days a week by contacting Support@VocalBoothToGo.Com

Introducing The Carry-On Vocal Booth 2.0

Introducing our new Carry-On Vocal Booth 2.0!

We have seen some portable vocal booths before. All of them based on using acoustic foam. Youtube is full of ” DIY $20 portable vocal booths”.  Some of them look mundane just a show box lined with foam and some are quite peculiar. We have also seen what happens to portable vocal booths made out of acoustic foam after they have been used for some time.  Even professionally made foam based booth gets saggy, skewy and  overall shabby looking. The foam gets soiled and rubbed.


We also heard from the users of such booths, professional Voice over actors, unhappy about the boominess and boxiness of the recording. The space inside the booth was very limited, which resulted both in bad acoustics and great inconvenience, because there was no place for the script so actors had to look away at the script, which did not make for comfortable reading.
(NOTE: close proximity of acoustic foam to a microphone can create a severe high frequency depletion in the recorded audio).


Encouraged by great success of our Producer’s choice acoustic blanket material, we designed the Carry-on Vocal Booth with strong rigid support, and ample space inside to allow not only to place a script, but also place your laptop or tablet in it.  Most importantly, the larger internal space creates much better acoustics inside the vocal booth.We demonstrated the very first Carry-On Vocal booth and Producer’s choice blankets at Voice Over conference VOICE2012 in Anaheim, CA. Producer’s Choice acoustic blankets This is when our work had actually started.  Voice actors in unison commended the great acoustic quality and spacious interior of the booth, but they wanted some additional features.


So we started adding features and accessories:
First we added support table, that made the booth “self supported”;
then we made the booth microphone stand mountable;
then we added base strap for “one step” set up;
then we added a miniboom to provide hookup for a microphone and a pop filter,
then we added specially designed script holder,
then we added a micro mic stand to support miniboom that would support the script holder and/or pop filter without a microphone stand;
then we added a light to illuminate the beauty of the whole assembly and then we came up with a solution to hold that light. (the solution was clumsy and confusing, but it worked);

We wanted to create a complete traveling Vocal recording studio, because we realized that voice actors, want to have a full set up, so they can get to work right away.
And we did all that without increasing the price of the unit! Voice actors, new and experienced, were praising the sound quality of the Carry on Vocal Booth, but as more and more users were working with it, we started getting complaints about, things like – “mounting bracket did not fit all of the microphone stands out there, the table was wobbly, the light was hard to fix, the stitching was a little off”.


We also realized that by adding all the additional gear we created clutter, that needed to be organized.

It is prettier, stronger and fitter. It is better organized and it has softer hug on your shoulders. It is practical and very stylish!

On the move it is the thinnest Vocal Booth in the world!






Each accessory has its own niche and we even made additional holders for microphone and pop filter.
Now you can load the traveling Vocal booth with your gear ready for anything, like a Navy Seal on a mission!
Another change we made is larger front padding, which allows to cover more of the area in front of the microphone.But when it is ready to work – it turns into a spacious recording studio ready to accept all your gear. All additional accessories are now neatly organized and stay in their place until you are ready to use them.

We redesigned the support table. it is now a little thicker to provide more reliable support on a mic stand.
The mounting bracket was redesigned as well to allow for use with thicker mic. stands.
Remember i had mentioned the  awkward light attachment?  so now we offer an easy attachment and we offer two positions for the light.  or you can get an additional light and have more illumination inside your booth.The carry bag was changed dramatically. The first most noticeable change is color. instead of  buttoned down all black, we use playful summer-sky blue color with new logo imprinted.



The Opening for a mic stand mounting table was changed in a way that it is a solid pocket, and not a weird flap in the middle of the bag.
We also added a shoulder pad for a comfortable carry.

In addition, we added quick-close buckles to the booth. Some of the previous cases also had the quick release buckles, but not all of them.  This feature was added by the request of reporters and journalists, who sometimes have to get going in a hurry and spending extra 15 seconds on zipping up the bag is a luxury they cannot afford.

And lastly, we are adding packaging.  As our brand becomes well known the new Carry-on Vocal Booth will come in a beautiful new box.

Our new Carry-On Vocal Booth 2.0 includes the following:

1.  Carry-on Vocal Booth with nylon case and Support table;
2. Mounting Bracket
3. Miniboom
4. Micro Mic stand.
5. Script holder
6. LED no-noise wireless light (One per unit. Batteries not included)
7.  Special gift: VocalBoothToGo USB pen.

Extremely useful tool for a creative professional. It has an all world ball point smooth pen and 8G USB storage to keep  all your auditions or other digital files handy.
