Later in this ARTICLE I'll show you a sound test andwhat it sounded like in a room before adding the acoustic foam setup and thenafter here's what you'll need a light stand a metal clamp holder or springclamp acoustic foam wall panels which come in a pack of either two or fouralthough I already had a light stand and some spring clamps so this only ended upcosting me around forty-five dollars similar setups of this can cost anywherebetween one hundred and fifty all the way up to five hundred dollars USD nowthis isn't saying that those systems don't work in fact they do and they dowork well and if you can afford them I highly recommend you look into themhowever if you need a solution that can help stop echo and sound reflectionsthis is a great alternative in fact setup is pretty easy here let me showyou it's as easy as one two some people might want to know why not just installthese acoustic foam panels on walls and if you're like me in an apartment whereyou're renting it doesn't make sense to have acoustic foam panels like thiseverywhere in your living space another great reason is that if you're inside alocation that has a lot of echo this is a great solution especially since mostof the time when you're filming on location you can't really hard installthings to the walls I do want to mention that acoustic foam panels like this onecannot soundproof a room what they're designed to do is help absorb some ofthe echo and sound reflections in a room so you don't hear them in your recordinghere's an example now you can hear me crystal-clear but if I raise theacoustic foam panel in front of me notice how it absorbs most of the soundand sounds muffled however this isn't true soundproofing because if it wastrue soundproofing you wouldn't be able to hear anything of what I'm saying sothis does not sound proof a room a lot of times I get questions like will thisstop car noises or will people not be able to hear me that's not what this ishere to do like I said earlier it's just going to absorb some of the echoand reverberation of your sounds I'm gonna let you now hear some examples ofwhat this solution sounded like in a room before I added the acoustic foamsetup and after I added it and I hope you can hear a huge difference right nowI'm in my living room and as you can hear there is absolutely no acousticfoam treatment so what I'm gonna do is bring in the acoustic foam setup fromearlier and let you hear her before and after so why don't we go ahead and getstarted and here's what it sounds like withthese acoustic foam panel setup as you can hear there is a lot less echo andreflection in my sound and it sounds so much more usable than it did before thislets me film in new locations 

because I'm not bound to having these panels putto a wall here's what that clip from earlier sounded like right now I'm in myliving room and as you're probably able to hear this has no acoustic treatmentthis acoustic foam setup really does help improve my sound so here's anexample of what it sounds like with some audio editing in post and without here'swhat my voice sounds like coming straight from camera with my deitymicrophone on top and here's what it sounds like with a little bit of audioprocessing and post this setup can also be really good for live-streamingif you're like me and your setup doesn't necessarily face towards a wall becauseof my unique living space my desk ends up being in my living room so havingthese acoustic foam panels and being able to remove them and take them downreally does make a huge difference especially when I have guests over so Ican not only improve my sound quality with this setup but I can also remove itif I have people coming over and it's not so visually jarring were you able tohear a difference in this Wallis acoustic foam setup let me know in thosecomments down below if you'd like to see more videos on how you can improve yoursound quality check out that playlist on-screen if you'd like to learn morefilmmaking techniques

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 …
