Aloha all!

I've got a fallow space that I'll be converting into a recording booth over the summer. It was once a bathroom. The layout is really self-designing just because of the size and shape of the space. There's an elevated slab where the toilet used to sit, about 4' x 6', that's surrounded by walls on 3 sides. We'll be using a discarded office door to partially create the 4th wall, draping a furnie on a traveller rod for a "door," and have 1" foam to line the inside along with 2" corner traps. Hardly perfect, but a far cry nicer than anything else we have.

I'm more interested in what I need hardware-wise. Things I have:
-new iMac loaded with Adobe 2020
-mics, windscreen, stands, shock mounts
-headphone DA
-multitrack recorder

My thinking is that this will be used both for ADR work, in which case recording straight to computer seems the likely route, and other VO work, in which case recording to a multitrack recorder seems easier.

Do I need a video monitor inside the booth? How important is that for ADR?

How would you set this up?
What's the best workflow?

Mahalo for your thoughts!

The difference between theory and reality is that, in theory, there is no difference between theory and reality.
