Help soundproofing small room

Hi slutz,

Just moved to a top floor flat with neighbors either side.

Room has possibly the worst acoustics I've heard.

Looking to sing as loud as I want without annoying neighbors and record vocals / acoustic guitar.

Flat is rented / I'm pretty broke.
Looking for a simple solution.

Curtains? Drum mat?

Presently, I have 3 freestanding clearsonic sorber panels, I'm wondering if a heavy duty drum mat will help block noise going to neighbour below?

Room will be for all recording / practice / mixing.

Thanks for any advice

You can improve the sound of the room, but isolation is a lot more demanding and there isn't really anything you can do to stop sound from getting through to your neighbours except playing quietly, I'm afraid...
