First off, I am a total newb, so thanks in advance for understanding. I tried looking at previous threads, but many extend beyond my technical expertise -- although I am trying to read up.
I am building a new house and have a room in my basement designated for my home studio. It will not be a commercial studio, but my personal project studio where I can track and mix in a single and moderately-sized room. A key factor for me is being able to work and record in the evening without waking the kids who will be two floors up. I have a nice collection of vintage and boutique low-wattage amps and low-wattage boutique amps that I would like to use late at night (no Marshall stacks or anything like that).
I asked my builder to propose a solution to manage sound. He proposed using Blow in Blanket insulation to surround the room. Blow-In-Blanket Insulation System: Sound Control
. Does anyone have experience with this? Am I better off ditching this and surrounding the room with sheet block instead?
Any advice would be much appreciated. I am under some pressure to make a decision quickly, so I apologize if this question has been answered before. I wanted to ask the question directly so that I don't make a wrong decision.
