Vancouver, BEAUTIFUL city, but man oh man is it expensive to live there!!!!
The problem with my area is that the MAJORITY of buildings are not concrete. Thats a big factor in sound deadening. Im not sure I'd want to belt without a LITTLE bit of treatment. Ie carpets or something.
Id really like to do a makeshift vocal booth of sorts. Im almost considering a fridge cardboard box, covered in some sort of foam/carpets.
That might be enough to take out the heavier DB's, as well as cut down on ambiant noise.
