Full Time Voice Talent, Acting and Voice Coach, Mentor and Life Coach
“ I am blessed every day that my 20 plus years of experience as a talent and coach and my need to share and be honest with others, has allowed me the opportunity to help others in the world of Voice grow and prosper. It's hard to find honest critiquing. I've worked hard to get where I am and I'm not afraid to share what I've learned with others. I am forever blessed in what I do, and I am grateful every day for all my experiences.
Recently I've had the privilege to test out the Carry-On Vocal Booth Pro. I am in love with the set-up of this booth. I use my portable booth everywhere I go and it shows. The functionality, ease, transportability and steadiness of this booth will allow me a better set up, and I love the script stand that holds IPADS and IPHONES.”

"The Carry-On Vocal Booth is lighter, easier to use, sounds better, and, in my opinion, far more functional than any other portable VO booth I've seen. Harlan's booth uses Auralex pyramid foam, which does a good job of diffusing the sound, but does only a fair job of absorption . . . . I like the Carry-On much better!"
James Alburger, VoiceActing.com
"Vocal Booth on Tracks delivers Exactly what it says! The Vocal Booth on Tracks in an option for Space Challenged Voice Talents . . . and Yahoo! I now have my own recording “room” – and, even better, I can whisk its “walls” aside whenever I need to."
Randye Kaye, Voice Actor, randyekaye.com
"The blankets made a huge difference. I was amazed as the room was awful before due to tile floor, mirrored closet doors and glass pane double doors but afterwards you'd never know with how amazing the isolation was. I bought 6 and hung them from ceiling hooks and created a 7'x 4' area and laid one on the floor as well."
Weston Boucher, Songwriter, WestonBoucher.com

|Comparison of Moving Blankets to Producer's Choice Sound Blankets|
When preparing a space for audio recording or creating a vocal booth, people often wonder what the best type of blanket to use for sound absorption. A first guess is to use moving blankets – easy to find and fairly inexpensive, right? But, what is the difference between a moving blanket and a sound blanket or acoustic blanket. Aren’t they both manufactured the same way and all pretty much the same? The answer is no.
The Difference Between Moving Blankets and Sound Blankets
Moving blankets and sound blankets are not the same. For instance, the Producer’s Choice line of sound blankets and acoustic blankets, measures at 80% noise absorption and has an NRC Rating of 0.8. NRC ratings fall between 0 (perfectly reflective) and 1 (perfectly absorptive.) So basically, the higher the NRC rating, the more sound a product can absorb. Most moving blankets are not even tested since they are designed for moving not sound absorption.

|Producer's Choice Acoustic Blankets Resolve Acoustic Room Treatment Issues for U.S. Troop Podcasting Studio|
VocalBoothToGo.com is working together with Operation Soldier Assist in creating an audio recording studio with proper acoustic room treatment with the help of Producer's Choice Acoustic Blankets. Operation Soldier Assist (OSA), a nonprofit U.S. military troop-support organization, supplies tactical gear and care packages to deployed personnel throughout the world.

The recording studio would also be utilized to create personal voice and even musical recordings from individual soldier's families to their loved ones in the military.
