New Studio Construction/Isolation Advice

Hi y'all,
I am currently towards the end stages of building out my studio. I'm looking for a little advice regarding drywall sound isolation solutions.

First, a run down of what we're working with so far (I'm including photo attachments below). We used double walls with studs set 16" apart. Ultratouch Denim Insulation. We will also be spraying K13 spray-on on the ceilings. I'm wondering what sort of acoustic drywall solution you would suggest.

Obviously QuietRock 545 would be my first choice but I don't really have the budget to install that on the entire studio (~$30k). This will be a commercial recording studio that will hopefully be operational 24/7. This obviously depends on how much sound is transferred in and out because I do have neighbors that are fairly close [closest is about 25 yards from the west live room wall (right side wall on the floor plan)].

With insulation and standard dry wall we have an R-rating of about 30. We're shooting for STC rating of at least 55, but I am a layman when it comes to calculating STC rating using the entire structure. Also, none of this includes acoustic treatment for reflections as that will be installed at the end. I would really appreciate any advice y'all have. Thanks!
