    In a room in a house
    Ahh the computer too is my downfall... I have trouble beign productive with both composing and practicing.

    I am only a child so I cant go build a room. I have to deal with what I have and waht I have contains a computer....

    I recently moved my practice corner into an isolated area of my room that is kinda hard to walk out of. Its been working abit better unless my gf is online...

    Does this work with a closet of clothes?

    Yes it does. See how far away you can get from the closet door and still have the sound "absorbed".

    if you want to deaden your space more, i would suggest 2" 100 sabine foam. this foam has a very level freq response and will absorb a lot of dB. if it kills your space too much i would go for more of a diffusion route. get a thinner peice of absorption material and place it on particle board and mount that on the wall, this will absorb sound and still allow a "live" room feel.

    also, be cautious of buying those fancy studio foam panels that have funny shapes and colors. these are usually out performed by much cheaper and uglier foam. ill have to read through my notes ill try and post a website to get these peices from.

    Tempo,For the walls 2 inch solid foam panels were used.The ceiling got six inch fiberglass.It does a great job in isolating the sound from upstairs.I picked the back of the basement for the room so that three of the four walls are the solid concrete foundation walls.You probally would have to use materials specificly for sound proofing if you were doing this on the same floor the rest of your family resides though.Hope this helps.

    He might have a chance. Marilyn Chambers might have slowed down a little in the last thirty years.
