Sound isolation for wood stove stovepipe / chimney?

I'm installing a wood stove in a recording room and I'm concerned about sound coming in from the chimney.  Any suggestions for dealing with this?

There is a consistent noise source nearby which, so far, I have dealt with relatively successfully with window/door plugs.  The stove would open a 6" channel from the room, through the ceiling/attic, and through the roof.

The stove itself might have enough mass to stop the sound (?) but the stovepipe is made of thin metal.

Do you use auto save on your daw?


Just wondering if you guys use the auto save function in your daw. I previously haven't but am considering it for the new setup.

If you are using it, how often do you have it save a backup? 

Alsp how many backups do have have it set to store, before it overwrites the oldest one?

I was thinking about setting it to backup every 10 or 15 minutes, and save my last 100 backups.

Curious what others are doing.

QY300 question

Hi all. I have a question regarding the QY300 sequencer. I just purchased one and can't find any information in the manual about hooking up various keyboards, so as to control them individually from the QY. There seems to be nothing in the manual regarding this. So how do I set it all up to record midi channels and play them back without having to listen to the QY's internal synth?  I've tried to find tutorials on it, but all they do is give me the lowdown on the internal synth.  Any help would be much appreciated.
