At this stop In San Diego, CA I met with James Alburger, a well respected voice actor and voice over coach, Founder of Voice Acting Academy in San Diego, California.
James is a truly great coach, very knowledgeable and very generous with his knowledge.
(See more about what James can do for you here:

He was very kind to show me his studio and i asked him to repeat the tour for VocalBoothToGo channel.
Any voice actor, producer and audio engineer must watch this. By strategically placing the acoustic treatment in the room James created a space where he can control the sound, so he can create the acoustic performance depending on the expected outcome.
He explains it all in the video.
For soundproofing the walls James used mass loaded vinyl – Mass Loaded Vinyl- 24ft. Roll
For acoustic treatment he used Producer’s Choice sound blankets – VB72G Sound Absorption Panels Producers Choice- White- Black. Size 96×80 with Grommets. Single.
The blankets are suspended on a ceiling track, so they can be moved out of the way as in over the doorway, but also you can slide them to open the wall if you need your room to be a little more Live, allow for some reflections. – https://www.vocalboothtogo.com/produc… (ceiling tracks can be as long as you need).
Light is LED light , that makes no noise: – Vocal Booth on Tracks (14 ft Ceiling Track Kit)
Creators of Producers Choice Acoustic Blankets, VOMO portable vocal booth, and many more acoustic treatments to optimize sound absorption. Studios, Vocal professionals, Voiceover artists, Audio Engineers, and Home studios use our products every day to control their sound environment. http://www.VocalBoothTogo.com/
Portable vocal booth from VocalBoothToGo.com can be easily washed in a regular washer.
to wash the Blanket part of the booth – take it out form the outer Nylon case ( unzip two zippers and unhook two hooks),
then pull out the hard parts Support rods and Support arches.
and throw it in a washing machine!
Dry on a high heat tumble dry.
Drying might take a while because thick cotton absorbs a lot of water.
but after the wash the booth will come out thicker and fluffier than before! Continue reading “Portable Vocal Booth washing instructions”→
This is a complete version of instructions on how to use the Portable Voice Over Mobile recording studio, VOMO, and some tips and tricks.
It has 15 parts to it. you can skip around.
I will also upload shorter versions, so it will be easier to find the specific topic.
The product, VOMO, is already being sold online , but for whatever reason my video producer was not able to finish the Instructional Video. So i made this version from a truck stop in Alabama .
I apologize for the delays and video quality, but i hope it delivers the information to successfully use the booth at its full capacity.
In Chicago we met with Tim Tippets, a professional Voice Over actor, Voice coach and VO tech guru Tim brought some of his latest gear and i brought the VOMO for him to test.
I think VOMO stood up to Tim’s scrutiny. Tim was using his expensive Sennheiser microphone. VOMO easily accommodated the long microphone with additional room to move it around for different Voice takes.

If you need to do acoustic room treatment with sound absorbing panels or acoustic blankets and have a drop ceiling in your room, this video will be very helpful. It suggest a neat way to hang acoustic blankets from a drop ceiling without any drilling or installing any additional screws. Out of Producer’s Choice Blankets, we created a space 6 feet x 6 feet with blankets covering the entire wall from floor to ceiling. Total cost ( not including the blankets) was under $10.
