· 8’ by 10’ by 6’ will actually work for recording high quality lead vocals. This is about half the size of the average bedroom.
· A 12’ by 10’ by 8’ room will work quite well for recording lead vocals, but start by trapping the bass in the corners.
· A 7’ by 7’ by 7’ will absolutely not work. This is a “cube”room that stores too much energy.
· The object of what we are doing here in recording lead vocals is to control the room’s “sonic signature.” Keep that in mind at all times!
· A small room can have a great deal of “proximity effect.”
· Locate the node-free zones of your recording room, because that’s where mics and sound sources should be located.
