I can make this iso booth out some of panels that are able to be moved. The side panels can be raised and lowered on the mic stands.

This is a great thread! Thanks to everyone for the things to think about.

My bandmates and I have a rehearsal space that we also rent out to other bands to try to offset our costs. I can't recall the exact dimensions, but it's roughly a 30' X 14' space with a 10' high ceiling. We made about a dozen panels of rockwool and muslin and did our best to position them to control things in this sort of odd space. We made foam blocks for the corners also. In my experience treating this room and also a small space in my basement (7' sheetrock ceiling), the ceiling panels a make a HUGE difference...maybe the most bang for the buck. I hung our panels from picture wire at the corners so they sit about 4" below the ceiling.

I'm far from expert but didn't see much about this idea elsewhere in the thread so thought I'd bring it up.

Ceiling 'cloud' panels are a must if you have a drum kit. It's amazing how much both the snare and cymbal sound bounce off a hard (close) ceiling. For tracking acoustic guitar and vocals, not much effect, but for mixing, again they are a must.

Definitely agree on drums etc. I found that having a panel overhead of the vocal mic made a big difference in quality also...mainly in the low ceiling room of my basement. Just my experience.
