I have never done even the most minor of sound treatment so I am no help.
But I am interested in what you end up doing so please do keep us informed.
Roger that, will do!

I had this battened off with 4" battens and infilled with rock wool insulation, and then plaster board and plaster screed. It keeps the room very sound insulated and warm in winter and cool in summer.

It, (for me) is very bright so I have three GOBO's positioned around the room, which are office acoustic screens, with acoustic tiles stuck to them. They keep the overtones in check for recording drums, plus I use a Yamaha Recording Custom which tends to be a short focused sound.

This all cost maybe £1000, but on reflection I might have achieved as good sound control with a heavy curtain around the room, at a fraction of the cost.
Did you go with hard flooring, carpeting, or a combo of hard floor and throw rugs?

It is a concrete floor, but with underlay added and then carpet on top.

Been spending much more time with the looper and improvisational pursuits. Starting to hear a little of the old “me” shining through.Smile

Covers are a lot of fun, but stringing a few original phrases together has always been more satisfying.

Santana said you should play until the first notes appear which are yours. No matter how bad the playing, it is yours.

^^^Though he might change his mind after hearing my original stuff.


On a side note, I received the estimate for my music room yesterday. No freakin’ way I can justify that kind of expense.Sad

192sq/ft built inside my existing shop on an existing concrete floor. Just an insulated box with 4 outlets, a door, and a lightbulb.

$8500.00

Daaaang.Sad

Whoa. That sounds steep. Have you done the Procurement trick of 3 quotes?

RE: what are you playing?
Nope. Probably won’t because:

-I was shocked and did some research on material costs. The guy was at least in the ballpark.

-I can’t really justify even half the cost of what he quoted anyway, so my idea probably wasn’t very realistic in the first place.

I’ve been very fortunate in this life, so I reckon when one of those “you can’t have that” moments rolls around I just need to count my blessings and move forward.


Sooo...to take my mind off the bummed outedness(yes, I just made that up), I started learning VH “Runaround”. A bit formulaic, but still lots of fun.Smile
