Acoustics First® Office Space to Voice-Over Suite

Moe Rock Voice Over Studio

Acoustical Panels in a Voice-Over Studio

This office space  was converted into a voice-over production suite for Moe Rock. Installed are 2’x4′ acoustical wall panels and a 2’x4′ acoustical ceiling cloud over the listening position.  A corner bass trap was created using corner impaling clips with one of the standard Sonora Panels.

With a wide range of available recording equipment, from computers to hand held devices, recording audio is easier than ever! With some simple gear and a good microphone, a quality recording is just moments away. However, before you begin, take a few moments and consider Acoustics First! If proper acoustical material is not in place, you may be recording unwanted room modes or excessive reverberation. Our brains, in combination with our eyes and ears, can compensate in less than ideal conditions, whereas microphones cannot.

When Soundproofing, Don’t forget to seal any seams and gaps

BlockAid Mass Loaded Barrier (MLV)

BlockAid Mass Loaded Barrier (MLV)

Whether you are building music studios, conference rooms, offices or any space that requires sound privacy, using multiple layers of sheet rock, mass loaded vinyl barrier and resilient clips with hat track  is a great start to soundproofing. However, no matter how many layers comprise the wall composition, any air gap or a seam will allow sound to spill into or out of the room. This would render all your hard work and labor null and void as well as waste your construction budget. It only takes a very small space to allow a large sound leak. Wall board and vinyl sound barrier are simple to seal correctly using an acoustical sound caulk. Be sure to apply sound sealant to all vertical and horizontal seams as well as the joints at the floor, ceiling and both inside and outside corners. Wall switches and electric outlets also pose a threat to sound leakage. They are just as important as the overall wall construction. Be sure to seal any of these weak spots with a solid enclosure or use a caulked vinyl sound barrier flap to create a soundproof seal behind these openings.

When Soundproofing a room, don’t forget to seal all your seams and gaps. If air can pass through, so can sound! http://www.acousticsfirst.com/sound-proofing-barrier-osi-acoustical-sound-sealant.htm
