Building a sound-proof wall!
Hey all, I'm converting a portion of a loft space into a 10x10x14 mix room. (10 deep, 10 wide, 14 ft. ceiling.)
Before I even think about acoustic treatment the space, I need to wall off this back area from the rest of the loft, hence creating a 100 sq. ft area, and sound-proof it as thoroughly as I can. (There will be editors and other office-mates in the space.)
After building the wall, I'll now have 5 surfaces (floor, ceiling, front, side and back wall) all concrete, with the sixth surface made of a completely different material. My immediate thought is that there will be incongruities in the sound unless I fill the wall with cinder blocks or something, just to keep the six surfaces consistent and create an even more thorough blocking of sound, and THEN equally treat the space for internal acoustics with some 2x2x4 fiber-glass to suck up the mountains of bass that will be created in that little room. (I have a plan for that part...)
Any thoughts on this are immensely appreciated. Thanks!
