Hey, everybody, Joe Liptock, audio engineer. Today, I'm going to be talking about sound proofing walls. The key thing you want to do when sound proofing walls is absorb the soundwaves. So you need good materials to do that. What are some materials? I like to use foam a lot. But you can use carpeting, mattresses, curtains, even wall insulation. Now thing about your situation here. What can I do to alleviate these sound waves. Try everything you can. Cover the wall completely with foam. Maybe even if you can get in between the walls. Put some insulation in there. Make sure the flooring is covered in carpets. Make sure there are no flat surfaces or anything where sound waves can propagate off of, bounce off or reflect. That's what you don't want in this situation. Some things to think about. Vocal booths. They use foam literally all over the walls to deaden the room so there's absolutely no reverb. That's a really good way to soundproof a room. And that's what I use and. And it's the cheapest. Foam. But that's just my opinion so I hope you come up with your own and I hope this video helps you do that. Thanks for watching,
