Someone once asked a similar question right here on this forum some time back. I tried searching for it, but I couldn't find it. I think the answer was that it had something to do with the clothes muffling the echo... or am I mistaken?
I know exactly what you mean, Working Woman. This sounds like it would be a good idea if you only need to record once in a while, but for those who need to record regularly, you may need to find a better solution than the closet.
That sounds inconvenient, but if it works, maybe it's worth trying it. Minimal sound enters the closet, making it ideal for recording. However, I think it's better to record someplace else that also has no sound disturbance.
