    Very cool. Good luck with it, I'm truly jealous.

    Thank you. The last room I had like this was over 20 years ago so its been a long time coming. And believe it or not its the wife that's the motivating factor to get this done, to bring peace, quiet and tranquility back into the home, and I can make all the racket I want in my sound proof room LOL! Not just my amps and drums are going in there, I'll have a big flat screen tv, computer, refrigerator and comfortable seating. :yesway:

    I’m curious, what data did you find that supports rock wool being superior to Fiberglas as far as sound transmission goes?

    I’ve worked in the industry, both on the testing side and in the field, for 15 + years and have never run across any data like that.

    Best part of a studio build out? Being done. Hands down. Looks like a nice space.

    Just doing google searches, I may even have posted a link or two to support my decisions. I used a product called Roxul which is easily obtainable at any home improvement store, its a dense rock wool insulation product, they make one in particular for sound proofing. If I remember correctly I read quite a bit about it and somebody did a sound test on youtube with a decibel reader and reviewed the results and data comparing insulation and rock wool. Of course the insulation is only a piece of the puzzle, resilient channel, drywall thickness and layers, glue between layers, installation technique, etc.

    Oh I’m familiar with all the mineral wool insulation options.

    There’s no appreciable performance difference between that, or cotton or Fiberglas in a wall assembly. At least over a test battery over the entire audio spectrum.

    It is the system that adds up to performance for sure. And it looks like you’ve got A nice system envelope. Make some NOISE!!!!

    Yay!
