That's exactly what I was thinking. Because it's so thick and heavy, it probably doesn't vibrate. Therefore, I assumed it's blocking the sound. Thank youThink of a concrete slab as a big bass resonator. The better the quality of the slab, the better it resonates. You'd think it would block sound, because of its mass, but not so much, because of its rigidity.
Thank you very muchMarkus, just watched the video of the studio build. Beautiful work!
For a split second, yes. But my first studio burned down the night before we wanted to roll out the carpet, including all my gear at that time. And a few years later a few hundred liters of water came down together with 2m² of the ceiling - directly above my drum set. So I'm quite used to this kind of f-up. The feeling was more like "Dammit. Aaaand here we are again." - while already calculating the additional costs and time in my mind.How shocking it must've been to walk in and see that water damage.
We weren't aware of the problem. If we would have known it beforehand, I certainly wouldn't have invested 6 digits and three years of my life. Fortunately this year the roof is getting repaired, so this kind of problem will not happen again. But who knows - our cleaning lady already managed to leave an incense stick in one of the bigger plants right before leaving, which started a bog fire inside the (plastic) pot, which rendered the place into a smokehouse but fortunately was detected by one of our tenants before the whole thing burned down.In hindsight if you had the chance to do it all over again would the roof have been addressed first? Not being a construction guy, I'm curious.
Great idea, your neighbors and your own ears will appreciate your consideration. I think for what you're trying to accomplish you can think in terms of echo control and a bit of muting.I looked around and didn't see what I was looking for, I probably missed it. If I did let me know. I basically want to sound proof a room a little bit. It's an upstairs bed room. I don't want to go all put, but what it a little quiter for the neighbors.
