Considerations for an at-home foley pit


Got a new gig doing Sound Design working from home.

I have a pretty full featured project studio at home with some nice gear.

I could get better foley mics, but I have decent quality options now.

Wanted to see if anyone had experience dealing with Foley and if they had any suggestions for creating a small space.

Note: I have a decent volume in the middle of my studio where I can use a portable foley setup
I also have an outside area directly adjacent to my studio >

So, if I want to do foley at home, what are some tips?

Biggest points are noise level and room sound, which you want none of.

I have an acoustically treated room and it is also nearly soundproof. Less concerned about these things and more concerned about the next level of issues like foley pits that are portable, mics, and techniques / advice
