Soundproofing for a studio

Recommended Posts

El Dildo

has anyone ever done this?

there's a room in the house we don't really use and I'm thinking of converting it into a recording space with sound-absorbing panels along the walls. does anyone have experience doing this at home?

 

like, I could start here

https://www.amazon.com/ATS-Wedge-Acoustic-Panels-Charcoal/dp/B00QH2RJW2

 

but I'm basically just reading reviews and doing research second-hand. I've been getting some opinions from my fellow musician friends, but I don't know anybody IRL who has attempted this in a small room of their own.

I have. I used laminate flooring underlay as sound absorption and it works well at a fraction of the cost of foam wedge panels.

 

But then, I just use my music room for fun really, not professionally.

yeah this isn't necessarily the most professional setting, either.

if music was my day job I wouldn't be asking lol.

 

great tip though! thank you.

handful of people I've asked so far and nobody has said anything about flooring inlays. probably wouldn't have occurred to me. although people have talked about ceiling panels, as well.

You might want to get a variety of dense/hard panels with various spacings in order to pick up a variety of frequencies. You could also get a loose rug to lay down to offer variable floor proofing.

well the room itself is carpeted right now. does that achieve the same effect??

or is the point to have a variety of surfaces? like a hardwood floor with an area rug.

I'd definitely have a loose rug over a carpeted floor. The room can be too sound/frequency-absorbing and you might end up with a really dull-sounding room. It might be better to have the option of additional dampening IMO
