Sound Proofing

Soundproofing

Soundproofing (or, more accurately: sound transmission reduction) is often the close companion of acoustic treatment but is absolutely not the same thing at all, employing a vastly different range of materials and techniques.

In some instances, soundproofing might mean simply improving the fit of a door, rerouting an HVAC duct, increasing the weight of a wall, floor, or ceiling, or perhaps tracking down and sealing air gaps. Increasing weight to improve isolation requires a thorough understanding of the existing structure, and might involve bringing in a structural engineer. Sometimes, sufficient improvement can even be gained simply by reorganizing a studio’s layout — a sort of “audio feng shui” — and this is often the least expensive soundproofing option of all.

Choosing the ideal location for your studio in the first place will save you a lot of time and money in soundproofing, money you could spend on far more enjoyable areas and pursuits! Call SaS before you decide where you want your studio and we’ll get you started in the right direction.
