Advice on studio sound proofing

    Hi,

    I’ve recently been looking into soundproofing solutions for our recording studio and was wondering if anyone has any tips on the best materials to use.

    The options so far seem to be acoustic board, or honeycomb foam. The foam is quite cheap on eBay, but is it any good?

    As R. Gervais points out in this video:

    Some books are weird.
    But some are worthwhile.
    Look to the link on the left of this post entitled "Books To Read" you may find a book by another R Gervais to your liking.

    I'm almost finished with the rebuild of my studio after it was flooded in April '07. My contractor used Celotex for sound insulation under the sheetrock.

    The room was so dead before the sheetrock was applied I am going to use 2'x2' pieces of Celotex covered with fabric as part of my room treatment. It's fairly inexpensive, about $15 for an 8' x 4' sheet, and an added benefit is that it is "green" (ecologically friendly).

    Pictures of my studio rebuild are here:

    The moldings, window and doors go in next week, followed by the carpeting, sound treatment and gear.

    Isolation (the new soundproofing) is obtained with materials having mass, density and a few other heavy words.

    Foam (IF used is more part of the acoustics, which is different from isolation), on the other hand, is not always to be trusted and an extensive background search is advised on the product you are being "sold." Data is what you want, something that can make you a believer without someone sticking their hand directly into your pocket while giving an cogent analyzes.

    Excellent,

    Many thanks for your help people. We've got a company coming in next week, looking to expand the studio at the same time so should be good when its all done!

    Cheers,
