Are you looking to soundproof your own home recording studio for better audio quality? Here’s an easy project you can do at home to solve that problem.
In this video, I’m going to share how I soundproofed my own home video studio using supplies I bought from Home Depot.
For this tutorial, what we’re going to do is basically block out the entire window. This project will only cost you around $20 per window. Let’s get started.
Make sure you have these items before getting started. I got these items from a big Home Depot near our area:
- Blueridge Fiberboard/Fiber Sound Stop – This is a soundproofing material and I found this in the insulation section at Home Depot. Note: This item couldn’t be found on their website.
- Rubber Sealants – this is for sealing the gap between the fiberboard that we’re putting up and the window.
- Dry wall screws – for installing the board against the window.
Steps to Soundproofing Your Own Home Studio
- Cut the Blueridge Fiberboard to the size of your window. You may also get your window’s measurements in advance and ask the people at Home Depot to cut it for you. It’s totally free.
- Install the rubber sealant along the edges of the fiberboard.
- Mount your fiberboard to the window using dry wall screws. Make sure that there aren’t any gaps between the window and the fiberboard to make your soundproof.
This simple installment definitely muted the construction noise outside my own recording studio. Did this work for you? Let me know in the comments below.
