Soundproofing
I'll be moving to a new place soon so I can spread all my gear out and go hard at it.

Just wondering what a cheap and effective way of soundproofing a room is?


Anything you have used that has worked well/failed terribly?

do you own or rent? i'm asking because there is no cheap and effective way. if you can invest some money the only way is build a second stud/plasterboard wall with polyester or fibreglass batts between studs. this new wall has to be totally separated from your existing dividing wall by a gap of ca 50mm. if you are a handyperson it's not too expensive, but it works. trust me, i'm an architect.

yea I'll be renting, so it has to be something I can add to the room without destroying anything (including my bond payment).
