One of the most difficult things to get right in your home studio is soundproofing.
Making sure you don’t bother the neighbors or the rest of the house.
You’re budget only stretches so far, but you have to find a way to reduce any noise escaping through that open staircase or through the flimsy back wall.
What’s the cheapest option to do that out there? Maybe a heavy curtain will work?
And will putting a carpet on the floor do any good to keep noise from going through the floor?
Isolation techniques are a discipline all on their own and can be tricky territory.
I constantly see people making 3 big mistakes when they think about soundproofing and noise reduction:
- Mistake #1: Confusing soundproofing with acoustic treatment.
- Mistake #2: Picking products that absorb instead of reflecting sound.
- Mistake #3: Overestimating how well a solution will work.
But if you want soundproofing to actually work in any meaningful way, you have to make sure you get those right.
Let me show you how you can make sure you don’t fall into any of these traps if you’re currently looking at options.
I’ll also show you how you can quickly estimate how well different solutions will work in practice.
