I've got neighbors and a thumper, up here in my apt. I have a relatively simple policy - use headphones before 11:00 am and after 9:30 pm (10:30 pm or so on Fridays and Saturdays). Knock-on-wood - I haven't had any issues with any of my neighbors, yet.

I'm astonished - your policy is exactly the same as mine, to the minute... and has been observed strictly for 3 years! They usually just give me a bit of the eye, or let their yappy dog out at midnight as payback.. But what got them on Saturday was the CONSTANT auditioning of suitable kickdrums for 4 hours! I must admit, I would have gone mental after 2....!

Nice job, and I'm seriously impressed you built it yourself - just one question: did you decouple the drywall from the stud? (green glue, joist tape etc.?)

If noise transfer to other people is a problem and you haven't, you might want to think about double drywalling. Pain to do but makes a huge difference.....

I'm a handy guy and I have some experience building.

The electrical was done by a friend of mine and I have electrical outlets every 4' and my electrical pannel is protected by a "surge supressor". The room is also wired for surround sound, coax and CAT-5E (in multiple locations).

The 5/8" drywall is "decoupeled" with resiliant channel the joists and stud cavities are packed with Roxul Safe & Sound.

I did my research and I'm using 5/8" drywall (which is denser than the standard 1/2" drywall). 5/8" drywall is also considered "fire-code" which buys you another few minutes in case of a fire.
The Roxul also helps.

Double 1/2" drywall with greenglue would be taking it one step further but is significantly more expensive. My ceiling height is 6 1/2' and I want to preserve as much height as possible because I'm going to be installing a floating laminate floor.

I've done a lot of research regarding materials and I did what was in my budget. The sky is the limit when it comes to making a "sound proof" room.
So far I am very impressed with the how quiet the room is.

I will stfu then.

Honestly, you've got all your materials and techniques right there - you should be very proud. I just finished an acoustics install (commercial) and I wish they had the allowed resources and went as far as you have. Resiliant channel is one of the best things you can do to accelerate the effect of isolation. I just bought 17 boxes of auralex 2" thick mineral. This is the most dense acoustic batt I have ever come across (8lbs+ per cubic foot).

know exactly what you mean about cost vs. soundproofing - it can get really expensive incredibly quickly.

I hear you but it's a luxury when your top priority to stop the noise from the busses outside coming in or the neighbors thumping on your wall.

Also in a control room (rather than in a rec room which I can;t stand without some feel or ambiance), I generally like it pretty dead.

the whole point is to prevent sound from coming in or out of the room.

If you're inside the room it won't sound "dead". if you "over-treat" the walls with wall treatments that will give it a "dead" feeling.
You need to have some reverb.
After I put the insulation up the room was completely dead, footsteps sound weird without a bit of echo, once the drywall went up it went back to normal.

Yayy new pix of the studio. Just moved into a new place and finally set up all my gear. I think it's about right now. Looking forward to starting a new track later this week or maybe even tomorrow ... I have one that I've been working on for months but it's not going anywhere so I'm going to put it down for a while.





Something every studio should have ... a keg fridge. Serving all homebrewed beer -- there's a lager fermenting in there now.
