Home Studio Soundproofing

Expert advice from SRS

Home Studio Soundproofing

If you and your mates reckon you're the next Led Zeppelin, you'll first need to look around for soundproofing products that'll help you practice at home in an environment that's conducive to creating great sounds. Apart from the soundproofing, you'll also need to consider room acoustics, echo and reverberation control using recording studio sound-absorption products, and building acoustics. Its all about designing an environment that'll let your creativity flow, without feeling guilty about disturbing the neighbours.

Don't worry: Sound Reduction Systems (SRS) has many soundproofing solutions for domestic use and our technical expertise is impeccable. So, how do we set you on the road to stardom without driving the neighbours to distraction?

Obviously, all the soundproofing and sound reduction in the world won't be enough if your group enjoys working its way through the Def Leppard back catalogue in the middle of the night. So, keep your studio away from areas like bedrooms that will have an obvious impact on neighbouring houses. The ideal location is a basement, because next door's basement will likely be used just for storage, rather than for sleeping or watching TV.

Acoustic isolation products

Studio designers aim for a 'room within a room', using acoustic isolation products such as resilient bars or independently fixed stud-work on walls to separate the room's linings from their surroundings, while treating doors and windows, too. The soundproofing that can be achieved depends on the building's existing fabric, how far you want to go, how much you have to spend and how sensitive your neighbours are.

What acoustic products does SRS offer for home recording?

MaxiSlab Acoustic Blocking for WallsAt SRS, we can offer an array of high-performance soundproofing and sound-absorption products for your home-recording studio. They include Maxiboard, a 17mm-thick, 24kg/m2 composite building board used for soundproofing for walls and ceilings. Maxiboard's sound insulation is unparalleled, especially at low frequency.

Maxiboard is great not only at keeping your guitar riffs within your chosen room, but also at keeping external noise out. Maxiboard is such a good soundproofing material that it's been used on the walls and ceilings at Wendyhouse Productions' new recording studios in Shepherds Bush, London you can read about it on our sound reduction blog. The studio chose Maxiboard for soundproofing because of its great low-frequency sound insulation and because it minimises the loss of room space.

 

Soundproofing for Music StudiosOther noise reduction and soundproofing options from SRS include Sonata acoustic panels, which you can use on your walls to reduce unwanted echoes and reverberation. These are high-performance studio sound absorption panels that come fabric-wrapped in a wide variety of finishes and colours.
