Short answer: of course! If you're worried about reflections indoors, well it's part of the space and perspective/realism. So don't worry about that. People see a big room, they except it to sound like a big room. Obviously there are limits, but until you're dealing with higher budget stuff, I wouldn't worry! The times where you simply can't use a ...

The only way to soundproof anything is mass. You need weight. Nothing else will work for bass frequencies. No amount of egg boxes will have any effect. Assuming you actually still need access to the door & that rebuilding the entire thing triple-glazed is right out of the question, then the only thing I can think of might be lots of heavy blankets, ...

I second many comments here, but to add something myself, I started out with leaps. In the very beginning all I had was a cardioid big-membrane ADK A51. Far from professional (the horror! THE HORROR!!!), but I had to start somewhere. Over the years I upgraded to mics like Röde NT-3, Line Audio CM-3 and Oktava MK-012 for example, but when I went pro I ...

The thing with soundproofing glass doors is that there has to be two layers of glass with a little space in between the two to properly soundproof it. One of the comments i saw up there said CD Jewel Cases might work... im thinking that would be the best option aside from installing double thick glass in that doorway. Also make sure that you fill ANY SPACES ...

Weight. Heavy fiberglass. a heavy mattress maybe(??). Things that are heavy with a lot of surface area. Another thing to note is thickness. The thickness of an object will tell you what wavelengths it will dissipate. That's why you always hear the bass from next door's stereo, because the wavelength is longer than the depth of the wall. p.s. egg boxes are ...

I love the Oktava MK012! It has a wee bit muddy top, but all in all it sounds good for it's price. Myself, I nowadays use mostly Sennheiser MKH-microphones, but my old Oktavas is still in use, though now for different forms of sound design-chores and for perspective sounds. Handling-noises IS a problem on this one, you can't just grab it and hope for the ...

@LittleJim84 I had the same dillema what I bought my package not long ago. Lots of people say "use a hyper cardiod" but there don't seem to be many "hypers" in the under 1200 category that are said to be ok to use inside. I was hinging on a blueline and audix for a month until I decided that I would get a Sanken Cs1e. Sanken pickup pattern is very tight ...

Shotgun mic sound tends to get coloured indoors due to the interference pattern failing to reject early reflections. So yes, you can totally use one, but trust your ears, and keep in mind the general recommendation is "no". Have seen a number of people suggesting that a hypercardioid would have been a better idea when they started (also implying they got ...
