How to Make High Performance Sound Absorption Panels Fast.

I'm sharing my maker journey to help you go further in yoursso don't forget to subscribe hit that little bell icon to never miss anopportunity to keep making this video is all about these brilliant sound panelsthat I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna put them in myself in this workshop becausethese, unfortunately, are a commission by a client now I really want to showyou very quickly and very simply how easy it is to make these as I feel likemost people who are showing how to build these make a big giant 15 minute longvideo on something that is a very simple build I was able to make five of thesein four hours so let's get straight into itfundamentally 

You only need three things rock wool wood and fabric however I'mgoing the extra mile here and adding upholstery lining fabric to the backDacron fiber quilting to the front and I'm using 100 millimeter RW 45 rock woolfor between which means that my wood is 100 millimeters wide and I'm using 20millimeter thick finished pine as for the size of the panels are making theinternal dimensions are 300 millimeters by 1200 I've already pre marked thecenter and the spacing needed for the pilot holes to ensure that I don't splitthe wood from here it's as simple as screwing these bits of work together tocreate the basic frame make sure you use the right screws that push the boardstogether and really do not over tighten these types of screws as they will splityour frame I then added the backing to the frame working my way from one end tothe other to make sure that I get out all the creases and if you don't have anail gun do it by hand flipping the frame over I now put in the rock wallfor your sake please wear gloves and a mask as this is nasty stuffI also recommend using this saw as it will cut the rock wool like a butter andit hardly makes an any mess from here I attached my quilting once again ourstarting for one the other to make sure it was as flat asit could be now going somewhere cleaner than the workshop 

I now add the outerlayer no sewing of any kind is needed I just make sure the panel is placed inthe center of my fabric and I just fold the fabric inwards before securing itto the frame this time round I work from the middle outwards to make sure that Idon't pull the fabric too far to one side or the other once one side is doneI wrap the frame completely in fabric to then be able to cut off the excess veryroughly once cut I do the exact same to the other side of the frame startingfrom the center and this time adding a little bit of tension to make sure Icreate a nice flat surface on the front side of the panel when it comes to theends it's roughly the same idea except we are going to do a very simple fold overit's loosely based on the hospital corner of bed sheets but once this isdone that's it you're done once these are secured that is the panel made a fewpoints that I need to address because I haven't shown you how to mount these nowthe way I'm going to be mounting these or by using these hooks you just screwfour of them in and then you screw four on wherever else you're gonna have themand you hook them up now you're asking but Jonathan that puts them a distanceaway from the surface that you're mounting them on they're not flush thewall that is the point a big part of noise-canceling slash noise isolationslash dealing with sound is making sound go through many materials the easiestway to explain this is this is the wall and this is the sound panel when youhave these two together a sound wave comes in goes through your sound panelgoes straight reverbs off the wall and goes back through your sound panelthere's not really that big of a change material it's dense material going to adense material however whenever you add a gap now it's air so dense materialhaving to change to air we're reflect off a hard material having to goback through air and then go back through your sound panel that somewheredon't know where don't quote me on this is almost a 20 to 30% more efficient tohave a good two and a half centimeters slash an inch gap between the wall andyour sound panel and that is a big difference so I had to let you knowbecause I'm not going to be able to share this how to install them as itsays in a client's place so yeah that's how things go anyway enough of that I'mgonna now give you a sound test so that you can hear the before and after withand without the sound panels without the sound panels what's up guys i'm jonathanand want to maker tales this is a sound test one two three. 

The testwith the sound panels in what's up guys i'm Jonathan welcome to maker tales andthis here is a sound test one two three and there you guys have it that's how tomake these super efficient yet cheap sound panels from the ground up as yousee it really is that easy and they sound great anyway guys thanksfor watching keep making a let the quest continue

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 …
