SoundProof Blankets? (opinions?)

Soundproofing Sound Room Soundproof Studio Pro Curtain - eBay (item 310139789302 end time Jun-01-09 20:55:56 PDT)

I am trying to make a room as dead(For Tracking) as possible is this worth the money?

Will this kill my acoustics?

Anyone selling acoustic treatment who doesn't understand the fundamental differences between isolation and acoustic treatments..... gah...

Looks like a big packing blanket. Yes it will absorb some (mostly mid/high) frequencies, but its definitely not something worth buying, especially at that price.

Over priced blanket that will only kill the high end but leave the lows and mids bouncing around the room.

Won't work. Sound proofing requires mass, period. That blanket wouldn't stop a mouse fart.

Yeah. Run screaming from any company who uses the term "soundproofing" in the same sentence as "blanket" or "foam."

That said, for acoustic treatment, blankets can be useful in a pinch. Obviously real acoustic treatment (read: bass traps) are much better, but you can use blankets like that to kill flutter echo in an untreated room. Just be careful and only add a little at a time.

But definitely don't buy these "soundproofing blankets" and think you've treated your studio.

Yea I guess also in a pinch you could also use them in the early reflection points (What Are Early Reflection Points. SPOTLIGHT:Bob Ebeling - Revolution Studio).

Ask them how much they weigh...
For example: the sheet block with foam material I use for certain things weighs around 15.5 Oz per sq. ft.

It contains a rubber sheet an 1/8" thick, which provides a small amount of mass...

Sure...that's got a lot more mass to it than a blanket, that's for sure.
