  1. Thanks Susan, great tips for low cost recording space!
    I hadn’t figured out my on-the-road recording space details, but your suggestions about using the luggage rack and a blanket are perfect.
    This will work in my RV as well.

    Thanks for all the weekly tips. They are priceless.

  2. I am not able to view the video. Says it is in “Restricted Mode”. I was not able to turn off Restricted Mode. Did you do something to the video to make it this way?

  3. Hi Shanlynn,
    So sorry you can’t view the video. Its open to everyone. Must be a setting on your computer. Maybe try another computer and see if it works? Or contact your tech support person for help. My videos are also posted on my You Tube channel so you can go over there and see if it works. Good luck! Susan

  4. Hi, thanks for the tip. I wanr to know more. I have been told I have a great voice and teach meditation. I want to do a recording for a projrct and would also love to aquire some voice jobs.

    Thank you!


  5. Hey Susan, Your tips are right on the money, perfect. May I add one more tip with regard to location of your studio? No? Well,anyhow here’s another one lol…make sure you are far away from HVAC equipment, Isolation is half the battle. Thanks for indulging me.

    • You are so right, Lance. When that noisy heat or A/C comes on it can really ruin a take. The best thing is to turn everything off while you record and hope that your housemates understand. 🙂
      Maybe you can give them warm sweaters and socks for Xmas and they’ll forgive you.
