    OK, i'm finally going to build my own studio in part of a warehouse. my space is 30' x 30' i'm going to have a control room, 2 small instrument rooms, and a large band room (mainly for drums, and the whole band to stand in, with their amps obviously in one of the other rooms....

    what kind of material would you use for the Drum room, Instrument room A, and instrument room B??

    any suggestions are greatly appreciated :D

    What you should do is find out where some of your favorite recordings were done, then call the studio and book a tour. Then you can see first hand what the rooms are made of, along with design and dimension.

    good call,,, unfortunately i live in charlotte nc,,, all my favorite recordings took place in either england or seattle.

    what i'm really looking for is if anyone knows the what the differences are in, for say, woodin walls, brick walls, tile, sheet rock, etc,... and the "WHY's" i guess that's more what i'm asking,,, what do these materials do to color your sound??

    isn't the dave matthews band studio in charlotte?
    i've seen a pic of the studio and oh boy... if someday i make it big i want one of those... :)


    For sound isolation you might want to look into:

    I recently "soundproofed" a basement room using stud walls built away from existing concrete walls, vinyl barrier, resilient channel, and two layers of 5/8" sheet rock. I then stumbled upon this site and they make some pretty impressive claims. I wish I would have found it before starting my project.
