Attic Shaped Studio

Jennifer, what I did in my last studio was to not use grilles at all. Here (top photo) is the duct delivering fresh air over the top of the AC and the stale air exit duct (second photo) has two entry points without grilles, half hidden behind the cloud. So far my plan is to do the same in my new pla...

Attic Shaped Studio

Rod Gervais recommends Nailor grilles because they are low noise. I don't know whether that means all Nailor grilles are or just specific ones.

New Home Studio Build

Jason, I knew there was a picture I had seen over on Gearslutz. I found it in the topic Isolating production rooms from each other? It would be worth reading the entire, short topic as you will get to see that it is Stuart's image and his explanation is so much better than I could have managed. Here...

Myth: "STC is a good way of measuring studio soundproofing".

Sometimes it can help to see things: in the Document Library, IR761 has approximately 20 pages of introduction and then 350 pages of results of different tests. Look at the STC rating (in the table on the left of each page) and how that compares with the transmission loss at different frequencies.

Jason, I want to avoid answering your questions directly as Stuart will do that so much better, but I would like to show you some principles that may help. I feel sure you know the basics but something is not quite right in your current plan. First off, I have revised your plan. 3803double.jpg To av...

That was a quick two days; now we are out of materials.

I had the same problem trying to upload images so I hosted them elsewhere and linked to them. Someone else, possibly endorka, also mentioned the same thing happened.

Thank you, Avare. 1274 The one good thing about coronavirus is that all my gigs until the end of the month have been cancelled so I can instead concentrate all my time and energy on the studio build. I spoke too soon. Slovakia has, quite wisely, gone into lockdown: the borders are closed as are the ...

After a long break we got going this week. Rendering the outside of the studio wall. https://i.imgur.com/kttBxMl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/eFwYKSB.jpg Because the inner room is freestanding it is not as sturdy as the outer wall. To help we added a ceiling isolation hanger - we had one spare - to the o...

New build small size high isolation project

That is excellent work on the baffle boxes, Tom.

Does being in the flood plain mean you will have to make sure that you leave as little equipment as possible at a low level in the finished studio?

1202 The salesperson said that there was no difference between operable and fixed in the tests they had done regarding isolation. He said the results were the same, so I went with operable thinking having the option of fresh air might be nice at times. Howie, it is likely that the window company ha...

You will be fine with 8.5" as a little compression won't hurt; in fact, it may help the insulation not to settle (slip down a fraction) over time. I cannot remember the limit off the top of my head but I think it is around 20% compression before the compressed insulation starts to connect the t...
