I read somewhere that if you want your audio recording to sound perfect then you should record inside your closet. Is this true? If so, why does it work? What's the science behind it?

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?

This is hard to answer because one expert says yes, while the other says no. I think it's offered as a solution for those who need to block outside noise and who enjoy reverb.

I have actually tried this and the clothes actually muffle the reverberation off the walls. The sound I got was really good but who wants to live in their closet?

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.

I have to agree with Workingwoman. Being in the closet for long periods of time would suck unless you have a marvelous sized closet which I don't have.

Unfortunately, I don't have a wonderful closet size myself. Sometimes I record music in the car. At least I can keep from getting background noise.

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.
