Noise Cancelation

I live in a place where a lot of noise come from a window in my room.

How can I reduce that noise?!

I live a very noisy place too.

I have curtains, plywood and towels over the windows (all removable), I then have another layer of plywood, I do my pure audio recordings in a closet with sound insulation. 

If I do talking heads I do it from 2-4 in the morning and i have a insulated microphone box with an ATR2100. 


Even with all that I still have to pause every so often when a helicopter, ambulance or Harley goes by.

Sound proofing is one option, but it also certainly depends on the type (not brand) of microphone you are using. Your enemy would be a condenser mic since it is designed to pick up a bit of ambient sound. But dynamic mics are designed to mostly pick up what is really spoken into them. You have to place them very close to your mouth though.
