Small Room Vocal Recording

Hey, all.

I'm in the process of gathering materials for diy acoustic panels. After much reading, I've decided on a design, gathered the roxul 40, fabric, etc to build 6 4" panels.

The aim is to record vocals for voice over work, audio narration, publication reading for a local organization that works with the visually impaired...that sort of thing.

I've been searching and reading many threads about treatment placement. Most of them seem geared toward listening rooms, which I won't really be doing right now (I'll be monitoring on headphones for the moment). Still, there is a lot of good info. If I'm thinking correctly...I'll ultimately want superchunk traps for all the corners...but I don't have the budget for that right now.

What I have is (6) 2'x4'x4" rockwool panels. And maybe enough budget for 1 superchunk corner. Oh, and I've gathered materials to cobble together a workable plug for the 4'x5'4" window.

So, would the following setup do anything at all? I mean, anything good? Essentially, it's one superchunk corner, 2 panels mounted 4" from the walls adjacent to the corner trap, 2 panels on stands to position as gobos, and 2 panels hung in a cloud above the mic/vocalist.

This is my first time trying to upload an image, so we'll see if this works.

Thanks in advance for your help!


Edit: The ceilings are approximately 8', by the way. And the mic is a LDC.
