Egg carton soundproofing foam putting a damper* on your day?

If you’re looking at that egg carton recording foam and timing your recordings in between when the neighbor is mowing his lawn, it might be an idea to change locations completely.

A quick Google search for “audio recording sound booth public library” got me results with a completely free option for two hours at the local library. The only requirement was a valid library card.

The even supply a laptop with some basic Apple recording software, for example, GarageBand.

The limit for this particular library was two hours per day. If you think about it, this might be even a better option than somewhere like home with all of the distractions of daily life. In this way, you have a set two hours per day, you have a schedule, your signed up, and I’m betting your time is going to be more efficient and effective when your time is limited and you’re outside of your regular environment.

Personally, I hadn’t even thought about this Intel doing the research for this book, but as I write this, or rather, dictate this early in the morning while my family is asleep and no one has any power tools going in the neighborhood, two hours at a local sound booth for free or even low cost is a very appealing option.

If you think about it, all you really need are those audio files. If your sound booth supplies a laptop, microphone, and recording software, you walk out of there with, ideally, ready to publish audio files.

The more I think about this idea, the better it sounds. There we go, we just obliterated yet another hurdle in getting this done.

*That’s a little audiobook studio recording humor in case you missed it. 😉
