Title: Tiny House Studio soundproofing
Post by: billysurf on September 06, 2016, 01:22:28 PM
We are considering buying a tiny house or bus and creating a soundproof room inside.  The vehicle will be parked primarily at Camping sites.  As you can imagine there are a ton of sound challenges that will arise from site to site.  Dogs, other vehicles, neighbors, kids, the ocean etc.  For my work, i need 100% complete silence (I voice commercials and connect to other studios, so it's as if I am standing in their studio).  Currently I have a 4x4 Whisper room double walled sound booth at my home.  http://www.whisperroom.com/pdf/specs/MDL4848E.pdf (http://www.whisperroom.com/pdf/specs/MDL4848E.pdf)  I am open to either using this one in the vehicle or buying another smaller one.  I know that this alone will not stop the sounds from entering so I'm looking for idea I maybe a room inside of a room, floating floor etc.)  Overkill is the goal, so NO sound enters the booth.  My computer will be outside and I'm also concerned about how to eliminate vibrations from A/C units etc.  I will not be parking near airports or train tracks naturally.  I appreciate your time!!!!!

You can simply use the one you have and beef it up...build a decoupled floor for the whisper room and add mass loaded vinyl to the outside to increase mass.
Best bang for buck that way you get maximum reduction.

Give me a call and we can discuss particulars.

You need to build a room within a room, including the floor and ceiling.
Polyurethane rubber lifts on the floor should do the trick.
It really depends on what the dimensions are of the space you will be working with.
Ventilation, of course is important.
The other thing to consider is maybe trying a microphone with a very narrow pickup pattern. (hypercardioid)
That will help cut out extraneous noise if you don't feel like it's completely silent.
Remember your voice will be the loudest thing in the room.  The main to be paranoid of is high frequencies (and airplanes!)
Anyway, think Room within a room and insulate the crap out of your ventilation.
This video (even though it is a garage) might give you some ideas:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFG-W9nvSrQ
