Hello Bob,

Your project is very ambitious for the budget you mention ("a couple thousand bucks").  The only thing that might work is multiple layers of Green Glue sandwiched between multiple layers of dry wall.  Some of our customers have used dry wall of 1/4" or 3/16" thick with multiple layers of Green Glue with great success.  This material decouples and blocks sound.  Using 2 tubes per 4x8 sheet will give you 192 sq ft coverage per case of 12.  For info see http://www.greenglue.org/  Cost per case is $175.00

Don't forget to treat the walls so the Studio sounds good inside.

See the "Control Room Layout?" topic for more on this; an excerpt below:

Bass traps are the typical solution for bass resonance. The location of treatment for the first reflections are very critical for the studio monitors.

If the room is all sheet-rock the room will not have a flat response; it will be mid-bass heavy, so tuned panels maybe what you need. With harder construction materials the standard reverb. panels maybe all you need to quiet down the room.
