The Event Horizon

The saga of the sound booth continues.

I have been back and forth and up and down and something and something else with this damn thing. No matter what I record, The Boing keeps popping up. Move the mic? Boing. Lower the gain? Boing. Use a Porta-Booth inside the sound booth? Boing.

So the hell with it.

I can process the lines so that they fit within ACX/Audible's guidelines. I can make them sound as good as I can, and that's all I can do, so that's what I'm going to do. If what I do gets rejected, I'll deal with that then, but I can't keep spinning my wheels.

My frustration reached the point that I pulled down all the foam I spent the last weekend attaching to the inside of the booth with mounting tape. (Sidebar: Did you know that "Extreme" mounting tape can hold 20 pounds, but can't successfully attach a piece of acoustic foam to wood?) In their place, I put up furniture blankets. And the teeth-grinding truth is, it sounds better.

So what do I know?

Back to work. Time to get this done.
