A quickie about floor sound absorption
Hope you are all well.
Just a quickie.
I am moving to a new premises for my studio.
My biggest problem will be the sound traveling through the floor, disturbing the lady downstairs.
The studio will be in an attic space and will be used only for mixing.
What i would like to do is to put something on the floor underneath the speaker stands/mixing desk etc.
Currently, i have some carpet tiles and fibrewood which i am putting down in my current room to help create a non resonant hard surface.
My idea is to double layer some carpet tiles and then place the fibrewood on top of that, and place some sandbags on the speaker stands to weigh them down.
Is there any other fairly cheap alternative i could consider which would really help theabsorption?
The corners will be trapped with superchunks (Far front corners that is) and so will the length corners (All the way along the sides of the room as it is a typical loft slanted roof) be trapped by stuffing lots of bags of rockwool, duvets, blankets etc, and then placing a 10cm absorption panel in front (as i currently own these). I will also place superchunks directly behind the speakers.
If anyone has any ideas of something cheaper than the rubber sheets found in the shops, that would be great.
Thanks in advance,
