construction materials
« on: January 29, 2013, 07:04:42 PM »
Hi guys
I intend to make a home recording studio and just need some advice.
To begin with I will using the "floating floor room within a room" design but I need to consider methods
and materials due to budget restraints.I will be working within an area of 5.5 meters x 3.6 meters
Firstly I am really only concerned with just vocal soundproofing as all recordings employ DAW vst's etc
ie no live instruments and I generally monitor at low levels. Also I am not too concerned about outside noise as I live in a
very quiet area.
So......will just 16mm plasterboard/dry board suffice for cladding all wall surfaces to achieve my objectives.
The "inside" walls and celing will be dual stud(about 6 inches wide with insulation and about 6 inches clear of the existing walls.The floor will be floating on suitable acoustic matting.
As mentioned meterials can get quite expensive if I desire good soundproofing for the whole frequency range.
Any help will be appreciated

For just doing vocals this should be fine, you would need to use absorption panels on the final surface for reflection. Otherwise should be fine.
