What is Soundproofing?

The practice of lessening or preventing sound from travelling between places is known as soundproofing.

It’s vital for creating studios where undesirable noise is reduced, ensuring privacy, concentration, and increased audio quality.

At Acoustic Design & Craft, we specialize in delivering complete soundproofing solutions customized to your individual needs.

How do we Soundproof a Studio?

Designing a variety of strategies are needed in a soundproof studio in order to efficiently restrict sound transmission.

Our experienced and dedicated studio team follow a systematic procedure to assure optimal studio soundproofing.

The Basics of Sound: Soundwave, Wavelength and Frequency

The Basics of Sound Soundwave Wavelength Frequency

Sound is a form of energy that moves in waves via different mediums, including air, water, and solids.

Knowing the fundamentals of sound waves, wavelength and frequency is essential for compelling studio soundproofing:


Sound wave equalizers

Sound crosses in waves, vibrating particles in a medium as it propagates.

The wavelength, strength, and frequency of these waves can all be used to describe them.


wavelength amplitude frequency

The unit of measurement for frequency is Hertz (Hz), which represents the number of vibrations per second.

Higher frequencies produce higher-pitched sounds, while lower frequencies produce lower-pitched sounds.

The wavelength is the separation between successive points of a wave.

Higher frequencies have shorter wavelengths and lower frequencies have longer wavelengths.

Since it is inversely proportional to frequency.

Soundproofing through Mass

Soundproofing through Mass

Because mass absorbs and blocks sound waves, it contributes significantly to soundproofing.

Sound transmission is decreased when a barrier’s mass is increased between two areas.

At Acoustic Design & Craft, we provide a selection of high-density goods and materials intended to improve studio soundproofing through mass:

Mass-Loaded Vinyl (MLV):

Mass-Loaded Vinyl (MLV)

MLV is a flexible, thick material that effectively stops the transmission of sound in the air.

It is frequently utilized on ceilings, floors, and walls to increase soundproofing.

Double or Triple Layering:

Double or Triple Layering for noise reduction

Layering materials with different densities can further boost mass and enhance soundproofing efficacy.

Noise transmission can be greatly reduced by employing specialized acoustic panels or adding extra layers of plasterboard.

Soundproofing Through Damping

Soundproofing Through Damping

The process of damping involves turning sound energy into heat or mechanical energy, decreasing its amplitude and intensity.

This method works especially well for managing vibrations and resonance frequencies.

To improve soundproofing, we employ a variety of dampening agents and techniques:

Green Glue:

Green Glue layer 3d deign for soundproofing

A viscoelastic damping substance called “Green Glue” is used in between layers of plywood and plasterboard in construction.

It transforms sound energy into small amounts of heat, effectively decreasing sound transmission.

Resilient Channels:

Resilient Channels Soundproofing Through Damping

Installed between the plasterboard or other surface material and the structural framework are strips of plastic or metal called resilient channels.

They decouple the surface material from the building, reducing the vibrations that transmit sound.

Soundproofing Through Decoupling

Soundproofing Through Decoupling

Decoupling is the process of dividing structural components so as to stop sound waves from being transmitted.

By isolating surfaces and structures, decoupling lessens their direct contact, which minimizes the transmission of sound.

We employ various decoupling strategies to improve studio soundproofing:

Floating Floors and Ceilings:

Floating Floors and Ceilings

Ceilings and floors that float are made using a resilient underlayment or suspension system that separates them from the building.

By doing this, sound waves are kept from passing through the ceiling or floor assembly.

Acoustic Hangers and Isolation Clips:

Acoustic Hangers and Isolation Clips

Acoustic hangers and isolation clips are used to suspend walls, ceilings, and floors, isolating them from the surrounding structure.

As a result, sound waves are unable to enter the building’s framework.

How long does it take to soundproof a studio?

The duration of the soundproofing process depends on the size of the studio and the extent of soundproofing required. It can range from a few days to a few weeks.

Can soundproofing completely eliminate external noise?

While soundproofing can significantly reduce external noise, it may not completely eliminate it. However, professional soundproofing services can provide the best possible results.

What materials are commonly used for studio soundproofing?

Common materials used for studio soundproofing include acoustic panels, bass traps, soundproofing foam, and soundproof doors.

Can soundproofing affect the acoustics of the studio?

Soundproofing can have an impact on the acoustics of the studio. It is essential to strike a balance between soundproofing and maintaining a suitable acoustic environment.

Can soundproofing be done in an existing studio?

Yes, soundproofing can be done in an existing studio. Professional soundproofing services can assess your space and recommend the most suitable solutions.

How do you soundproof a studio?

To soundproof a studio, start by sealing gaps and cracks. Add heavy curtains, rugs, and wall panels. Use bass traps in corners and acoustic foam on walls. Double up drywall and consider mass-loaded vinyl for extra isolation.

How can I reduce noise in my studio?

Reduce noise by addressing both airborne and impact sound. Use acoustic panels on walls, ceiling clouds, and bass traps in corners. Opt for thick rugs or carpets on the floor. Consider isolating equipment on shock mounts and seal any leaks in doors or windows.

What is the best soundproofing for a recording studio?

The best soundproofing combines materials. Use a mix of bass traps, acoustic panels, and diffusers. Double drywall with green glue or use mass-loaded vinyl. Consider adding a resilient channel for decoupling. Tailor the solution to your specific studio needs.

How much would it cost to soundproof a studio?

Costs vary based on the size and existing conditions. A DIY approach could range from a few hundred to a couple of thousand dollars. Professional solutions might cost more, potentially reaching several thousand dollars. It’s wise to assess your studio’s requirements and budget accordingly.
