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).
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
The humming and the constant loud noise from air conditioning units installed in Art Deco style condos literally was driving residents crazy. Ruth Berdinis, the assistant property manager at a metropolitan city complex in Pennsylvania, noted that residents couldn’t even watch their television in peace. VocalBoothToGo.com’s Producer’s Choice Sound Blankets along with the tracking system turned out to be the answer to their problem in controlling the unwanted noise.
