Yes at long last I have myself a basement. I began moving into a duplex as of Tuesday and it comes equipped with a nice dry basement. Currently a roughtly 13'x13' space has been sectioned off by a makeshift wall. This area is where I will be setting up shop. My basement doorway is directly accross from the neighbor's basement doorway at the bottom of a stairway. Could anyone offer advice on options for minimizing how much sound carries into my neighbor's basement, as well as up into the rest of my duplex? In addition I'd like to get the more experienced members' opinions on whether the space available will suffice or whether the makeshift wall should go, which is an option. Haven't been down this road before so any advice is appreciated.
