Something to make a studio room Sound proof

Go to solution

Hey CoInstructors! I am working to setup a studio in my house by sparing a room. But the issue is that there is always some outside noise and I want to make my room sound proof to avoid noises coming from outside. Can anybody please suggest some really economical and useful solution for it?

I live downtown, within 1/2 mile of 2 highways, a huge hospital, fire station, police station, we have a TON of Harleys, ambulances, and helicopters.

 

I have towels/plywood over the window, and I record pure audio in a bedroom closet with the doors closed and more sound insulation and towels. I also use a microphone box.


When I do talking heads videos it is only possible between 01:00 and 04:00 in the morning, and then I still have to stop often because something loud is close enough. It is the very deep and very high sounds that is the issue, the rest is drowned out with the plywood/towels/insulation.

With talking heads I still use the microphone box.

Blankets on the wall and duvets on doors and windows is the place to start.

This may not be a possible situation for you but here's an option: https://www.soundproofingcompany.com/soundproofing_101/building-a-room-within-a-room

Try to cover the thinner and less insulated parts of the room, usually windows and doors. 

Using the right microphone for the environment is also important. A boom mic will help with that. A cardioid mic will not.

I posted this somewhere else here.

 

I was able to remove a lot of external noise using a Kaotica Eyeball wrapped around my Blue Yeti microphone.  It removes a lot of outside noise, computer noise and even typing sounds.

It's not cheap at $199 but it's a lot cheaper and more convenient than other options.
