About the Sound Booth

The inside dimensions of the booth are approximately 48" x 72"

There is a hanging Blue Yeti microphone with a USB connector installed in the booth, but no recording equipment - please bring a laptop or other USB capable device if you are using our microphone.  A Windows laptop with Audacity software installed on it is expected to be installed and available this winter.

Maximum capacity for the Sound Booth is 4 people - although it is a very tight fit with more than 2 people.

While the Sound Booth minimizes outside sounds and optimizes the sound within the booth, it is not completely soundproof - so keep this in mind when using it for recording

Use the Sound Booth for recording:

  • Podcasts
  • Poetry
  • Oral History
  • Music (solo singers or with 1-2 smaller instruments)
