- 1 x Neewer LED hairlight - this helps with adding additional dimension to the subject.
FULL DISCLOSURE: This room is not soundproof - which makes it not ideal for any music recording, or high level voice narration. This room is in an office that does have neighbours periodically, as well as being located in Yaletown, there may be sounds of sirens that can interfere from time to time. For most recordings we've done, this hasn't been an issue. The microphones are set up to only pick-up the user’s voice and eliminates most ambient noises.
That being said, the room has been treated to eliminate echo and make your recording sound as good as possible. That includes the equipment itself, along with a lot of sound absorbing materials.
