I have a double layer of Rockwool acoustic insulation in the ceiling. The partition walls have a single layer of Rockwool and double drywall on the inside of the studio. I've also packed Rockwool around all the ducts as that tends to carry sound around the entire house.

I asked my wife on a scale of 0-10 in terms of loudness, before and after.

Before I did the studio, it was at an 9 upstairs. Now she said it's a 3 or 4. Significant difference :)
