Recording Studio Soundproofing and Sound Absorption: What's the Difference?

Most recording studio soundproofing projects need both soundproofing and sound absorption materials. To understand which recording studio soundproofing products you need, you first need to think about how sound acts.

Sound absorption materials are applied to the interior of the studio. They soak up sound waves, preventing them from bouncing back off the walls. Echo and reverberation is minimized. While these products do an excellent job of improving sound quality, they are not made to block sound.

Recording studio soundproofing products trap the sound. They are designed to stop sound from moving from one space to another. The sound is contained within the studio and doesn't reach other parts of your house. In addition to keeping sound from leaking out, recording studio soundproofing products also stop unwanted sound from entering the studio.

Often musicians think recording studio soundproofing means creating a totally soundproofed area. To achieve this in a private residence is practically impossible and extremely expensive. A term that better fits your recording studio soundproofing objectives is Sound Isolation.

Sound isolation requires a sound barrier between your studio and adjacent rooms. One way to isolate a recording studio is to install dense recording studio soundproofing products. Their heavy mass blocks the sound.

Another way to isolate your recording studio is to create air space between walls and reduce the number of contact points between building materials. When construction elements aren't physically touching, the sound waves can't be passed from one to the other.

How Do I Know which Type of Recording Studio Soundproofing Products I Need?

You need superb sound quality. Sound leaking out of your studio or unwanted sound making its way in is not an option.

To improve the sound quality in the studio, you'll need Sound Absorption. If your studio has great acoustics but noise outside the studio interferes with recordings, you'll need Soundproofing.

To create the best environment to lay down tracks, you'll want to use a combination of both types of recording studio soundproofing products. Depending on where your receiver is located in relation to the studio sound, you may have to pay special attention to certain barriers.

Walls -Sound isolation methods, such as mass loaded vinyl barriers or insulation, work best for walls. Also recommended is creating an air gap between the existing wall and new drywall. To achieve professional quality sound, high grade studio foam should be installed to absorb sound energy and cut down on echo and reverb.

Floors - The best method of soundproofing your floors depends on your existing flooring. If you have simple hardwood floors, you'll want to get isolators. Isolators create a separation in the flooring, usually with rubber, so no part of the new floor touches the original. If you have a solid concrete floor, acoustical quality carpet underlay is recommended.

Ceilings - Creating a dropped ceiling packed with proofing materials is the best solution for a home studio. It can be used in conjunction with high-end acoustic tiles. Some products have a fiberglass core with a mass loaded vinyl barrier on the back to serve all purposes.
