Do you mean fill the space between the exposed ceiling joists in the room with roxul? Would this make a dead sounding room without any reflective surfaces on the ceiling? I’d like to have some natural reverb especially for room mics.

I’m trying to build for isolation as well but not sure if there will be much difference in isolation between these 3 ceiling options.
Yes, i meant fill the space between joists entirely. It doesnt have to be dead. You can still add some reflective strips or something to preserve the HF energy..
