Sound dampening and sound insulation in the sound studio and rehearsal room

What are the challenges for sound insulation in the sound studio or rehearsal room?

A reliable sound insulation and good acoustics without disturbing noises, flatter echoes or overlying frequencies are a must for perfect recordings in the sound studio.

In general, there are two challenges related to sound insulation for recording studios, which are critical for a precise, professional sound: Firstly, the insulating sound from the outside, or insulating noise inside, and secondly improving acoustics in the studio.

For a professional recording, perfection at the right moment is demanded – without disturbing noise. Sound insulation / sound dampening helps to improve acoustics in the sound studio and to prevent unwanted noises.

How do sound dampening and noise dampening succeed in the sound studio?

For sound dampening or even sound insulation for sound studios and rehearsal rooms, the important thing is to prevent noise from entering the room and disrupting the sensitive sound recordings. In addition, noises should not escape from the studio and thus become an issue for the neighbours.

In order to prevent music noises escaping and disturbing noises entering, good sound dampening / sound insulation is critical in the sound studio and rehearsal room.

Heavy weights against noise

In order to prevent walls, floors and ceilings vibrating as a result of the sound, and thus emitting noise into the surroundings, the mass of these elements should be increased by installing sound insulation. This reduces material vibrations and prevents sound propagation.

Profiled sound insulation mats such as nubbed foam or pyramid foam are not suitable for this form of sound absorption because of their low mass. We therefore recommend using acoustic elements with a high material density, e.g. acoustic heavy form, heavy acoustic foil or, ideally, a combination of both acoustic elements.

Decoupling from sound conductors

Another very effective possibility for preventing the transmission of structure-borne sound through walls and ceilings is decoupling using so-called room-in-room concepts. Partition walls are placed in front of the walls of the room. This creates an air cushion between the two walls, which already weakens the noise level. The space should be filled with sound absorbers in order to completely block the sound. We recommend sound insulation elements here with a high density (heavy acoustic foil, heavy acoustic foam) or sound absorbers with a flat surface with the largest possible thickness. The floor of the sound studio should also be "floating" so that sound transmission is prevented.

How can the acoustics in the sound studio be improved with sound insulation?

To improve the sound in the sound studio or rehearsal room, the sound in the room has to be dampened selectively. Acoustic foam sound absorbers are particularly well suited for this. The open-pore foam allows the sound to penetrate deep into it and absorbs it. As a result, unwanted reverberation is reduced and the overlying of frequencies is prevented.

The stronger (thicker) the material of the absorber or insulation panel, the lower the frequencies that can be dampened. Bass absorbers or bass traps are therefore typically particularly thick.

Acoustic foam bass absorbers/ bass traps ensure a clear, precise bass sound in your sound studio, rehearsal room, HiFi studio or music room. aixFOAM low tone absorbers are an optimum addition to the broadband absorbers on walls and ceilings.

The first step towards sound dampening in the sound studio is typically to install sound insulation panels as broadband absorbers on walls and ceilings. This prevents sound reflection and reduces reverberation times.

Improve sound with surface profiles

Foams with surface profiles, such as the classic nubbed foam or pyramid foam not only absorb unwanted frequencies but also disperse the sound. As a result, the composition and quality of the reverberation is changed, creating a more pleasant and very natural sound.

Sound absorbers with surface profiles such as nubbed foam or pyramid foam improve the acoustics in the sound studio and as broadband absorbers ensure a precise and natural sound.

Step by step to the perfect acoustics in the sound studio or rehearsal room

In general it is recommended to proceed gradually with sound dampening in the sound studio. If sound absorbers are arranged over too large an area, this quickly leads to "over dampening" and an unnatural sound. Mostly it is sufficient to cover 20 – 30% of the wall and ceiling area with acoustic elements. This improves the sound and at the same time is less expensive.

What has to be considered when sound dampening drums in the sound studio or rehearsal room?

Sound dampening of drums in the rehearsal room or sound studio represents a challenge because a particularly large amount of structure-borne sound is generated when playing them, which is transferred into the floor. It is therefore advisable to decouple the drums from the floor. This is succeeded best by placing the drums on a small riser. Like the walls and ceilings, the platform should also be filled with heavy acoustic foam or heavy acoustic foil and be covered with a "floating" wooden panel. This blocks sound transmission. In addition, we recommend placing suspended acoustic elements above the drums. The aixFOAM sound absorbers in aluminium hanging cassettes or ceiling sails are particularly good for this.
When dampening drums, sound insulation made from acoustic foam helps to reduce structure-borne sound and unwanted vibrations. This improves the sound of recordings in the sound studio or rehearsal room.
