How to Soundproof a Room : DIY Soundproofing

Hi, I'm Arthur Noxon, president of AcousticSciences. I'm going to talk today about do it yourself soundproofing. Now this is- thecontext for this is in a recording studio. Okay, sound proofing; number 1, sheet rockacross the windows, two layers of sheet rock across the windows, you can push them in thewindow well, cut them just to the right size, push them in the window well. 
If you wantto make a little trickier, a more repeatable window plug, take a piece of sheet rock, gluea piece of sound board, which is sometimes known as celotex, fiberboard, to it, and thensheet rock. The soundboard is larger, here's the soundboard, the sheet rock is smallerhere, and another layer of sheet rock here, everything is glued together with panel adhesive.This is sort of like a sliding gasket, these two layers of sheet rock are like your soundbarrier, and this is your sound isolator between the two. 
This is sized so that it pushes intothe frame of the window well, that's the window here…

How to make acoustic foam

Hey guys welcome back to another blender 2.8tutorial and today I'm going to be showing you how to make acoustic foam all inside blender. So acoustic foam as you know is this sound-proofingon walls which kind of looks like spiky foam, is what we're aiming for. So we're going to start off with modeling,so this tutorial is going to cover modeling, shading, and also a bit of uv unwrapping. So starting off with modeling we want to selecteverything a, x, delete. So we got rid of everything. Keyboard shortcuts up here by the way. So we got rid of the default cube just sowe can add it back in. That's what the professionals do apparently. So shift a, mesh, cube. So efficient. Ok so now that we have this cube, we wantto flatten it down. So s for scale and then z. And then we'll do something like 10% so .1. And now what we want to do is add some spikescoming out of this. So easiest way to add spikes, tab for editmode, control r for adding some loop cuts, and then we're j…

How to Soundproof Windows in Your Studio

Are you looking to keep sound out of yourhome recording studio? Like if you have a noisy neighbor that youdon’t want to pick up at your recordings, or maybe you need to keep the sound insidethe room, like if you’re practicing your new drumset. In this video, I’m gonna share how I solvedthe problem of sound coming through the windows of my home video studio. Of course, this solution only works if you’reokay no longer looking out the window. So if you need your windows to still be openand have light coming through, there’s another option. I’ll put a link in the description. 
I have a friend who did this. He’s got a music studio and he needed toleave his windows open. And essentially what it is is a press-in frame. It’s custom made for every window and itgives you another layer of thick material and no air cracks around the outside. It’s a little bit expensive but you cancheck that out down in the description. But today, what we’re gonna do is just blockout the window 100%. So I started …

Soundproofing/Acoustic Walls | Underground Earthbag Building |

Bree: In the previous episode, we finishedthe frame for the ground floor in the earth bag underground MusArt Studio. We were planning to do the natural light andvenilation video this week but we have had so many wonderful ideas from you, we needtime to process and think about it. So, instead,, let's go ahead and check inwith Dad as he works on the bannister. Gary: What's good about a post that is secureis if you can actually make it part of the floor. Bryson: With the bolts in, we can so we canbolt it down. Gary: You may remember how we cut down thetree limb. 
We used a lot of that cut down and branchesand stuff. That's what's cool about mesquite it is reallytwisty and fun. Bryson: It's not like plywood. Straight. Gary: We bolted it right to the 2x10's. We are going to run that at 38 inches on thepost height and then we will probably come down another inch with the ability to wrapthe hand rail, the bannister rail that is going to go around. Maybe like 40 for th…

Synthetic soundproofing membrane.

Traffic, neighbors and even noise coming from differentenvironments in the same home, affect our level of enjoyment,comfort and general well being. This is why Texsa has created Tecsound,a high-density and visco-elastic synthetic soundproofing membrane that provides exceptional acoustic insulationin traditional construction systems with almost no increase to wall thickness. 
Its high degree of flexibility and itsstretching ability capacity enables the product to adapt to anyshape or surface, greatly facilitating installation. With regard to combustion properties,Tecsound is the only acoustic membrane on the market to bear a Euroclasscertification and what's more with an excellent rating:Euroclass B, S2, D0 In other words, its contribution tocombustion is very limited and it does not release burning dropletsor particles. Available in different weights,in a self-adhesive format, with specific dimensions for gypsum plaster board or in combinationwith a sound absorbent fibre, Tecsound…

Insulation: 5 steps to a more efficient building and why don't use spray foam

hey what's up guys it's Kyle from RRbuildings and I'm coming at you with a article on insulation and most importantly insulation for post frame construction now obviously I am in northern Illinois so this might not pertain to people way up in the northern regions like Canada or way down south in Texas you got to consider your regionand make sure you talk to a local architect or engineer whoever you're consulting with your project but hopefully these five tips that I'm gonnathrow at you are helpful when considering your next post frame job solet's 
Go ahead and I'll take you through these different points that I think areimportant so the first thing that we're gonna talk about number one is a weatherbarrier now for us on our region we're not interested in having a vapourbarrier on the exterior because we're mainly in a heating season so we'regoing to be having warm air inside and our cold airs on the outside versus likelet's say if you go…
