When recording your on-hold programs, our talent often find themselves in a soundproof booth to facilitate a recording free of unwanted ambient noise. Many voiceover artists have occasionally found themselves recording in less than ideal circumstances, and have had to invent ways to soundproof all kinds of unusual recording situations. They can take comfort in the fact that they had some famous company! The original soundproof booth was invented by Alexander Graham Bell’s assistant, who wanted to stop his landlady from overhearing his conversations. The prototype was built in 1877 with blankets wrapped around a box – a method still used today by many ingenious voiceover artists when they have to record “on the road!” Some early models of soundproof booths were less than ideal – the doors often got stuck, causing the occupant to have to fight their way out, since yelling for help in a soundproof booth didn’t make much sense. Happily, today we have better booths and better reasons for using them --- to record great audio for our clients!
