Hi everybody !

I would like to have your opinion on the sound of my recordings. In fact, I built a recording booth and I would like to know if the sound is not too damped? Is there a way to relieve this "box" effect that we can hear ... (especially on guitar at 1:08)

Thank you !!

It sounds fine, like a guitar recorded in a booth!

It's very hard to create a small vocal booth that won't have some low end resonance, you could try adding traps, etc, or just work out the frequency and cut a bit of it in mixdown. Generally, you'll find something in the 400hz area that needs to be cut a bit.

Personally, I prefer record out in a larger room, using some packing blankets to kill reflections, if necessary. This allows the bass room to dissipate, and reduces resonances. I realize it isn't always possible to work that way, though.

I think your recording sounds fine, and would be pretty easy to mix.

Thank you very much for your opinion Johnsuitecase!!
And indeed you are right, we can observe the "effect box" around 447 Hz precisely ...

As I could see an example on the internet, I will try to put wooden paneling on acoustic foams tonight to see if it can brighten the sound ... For those who wish, I can put the results acoustic (REW) here...
