Yes already drew it like that, thanks. How much room is recommend for the spaces between the walls? Like 5cm or 25 cm? Or is there a way to calculate it?

yeah I know, well there wont be any full blown band rehearsel or recording just music teaching. But I'm hoping isolation will be good enough that we can use the booths to produce electronicmusic.

I made the same design from downstairs to upstairs

double drywall as ceiling
2 layers rockwool
air gap
2 layers rockwool
woodenfloor
OSB

Upper studio's wont be directly about the downstairs studio, hope that'll help.

Impact noise will be limited. But I figure that there will be bass from active monitors.
