    This is a little off-topic, but I thought everyone here would probably have some good insights.

    A friend of mine is setting up an amateur recording studio in his basement, and was looking to do some soundproofing for obvious reasons. I figure the materials needed to soundproof a studio are likely to be similar to those needed for a home theater, so here I am.

    Any suggestions? He's looking for general soundproofing as well as specific pipe and duct soundproofing.

    Thanks in advance!

    a good idea is to rubberize the room prior to the walls going up. also, there is a certain way to space the studs that eliminates sound transfer. there are also acoustic panels available but are quite expensive. try looking for a cedia certified home theater store in your area to do the work for you.

    Invest a little time reading Alton Everests' "How to build a small budget recording studio".

    It is written in laymans terms so anyone can read it and find out why as well as how.

    It is very informative, and includes 8 example studios.

    Good luck!!
