Its design incorporates three layers of soundproofing technology to ensure that unwanted noises and echoes aren’t picked up. To cater to this generation’s tech-savvy musician, the recording booth comes with a smartphone dock to facilitate reading lyrics or digital sheet music while recording. With a USB connection, sounds are directly recorded onto your laptop and ready for editing.
