Not to mention that opening the door trashes your isolation and changes the acoustic response of the room...

Even if the air did move, it's still not an option: Every time you open the door, you would get sudden wild swings in temperature and humidity, which is not good for the musical instruments, the musicians, the equipment, and some mics. Many instruments and some types of mic are sensitive to changes in temperature and/or humidity. For a serious tracking session, you'd need to be re-tuning the instruments all the time, and there would be slight changes in the response of the mics...

Not to mention the musicians... it's not pleasant to be in a small tracking room with no ventilation, when there's a bunch of sweaty musicians jamming hard...

Serious studios have ducts to bring in fresh air, and to exhaust the stale air. It isn't viable to have a studio with no ventilation system.
And yet, it doesn’t seem to be a problem for the studios that use them. I wonder why not?
