Myths

It is easy to soundproof my room

If something is true, it is that the soundproofing of a place, in this case, a room, will always be really attenuation; In other words, noise from the outside and inside is mitigated as much as possible, without completely isolating it. Soundproofing a room is not easy and requires a very large investment, whatever the soundproofing process; Even so, it must be taken into account that in a room the risk of sound leaking is very high, be it due to blinds, doors, windows, switches, among others.

Rehearsal rooms perfectly soundproof

Another of the great myths is to think that rehearsal rooms are perfectly soundproof. It is most likely that due to your profession you have been in one of these studios. Perhaps, you have been able to witness that even at these professionally sound-treated places the result is relative and that managing sound is not an easy task; in fact, it is most likely that these rehearsal studios have specific schedules to record or are located in less inhabited areas, generally in highrises or industrial buildings.

Truths

Portable sound booths are the best solution

Even experts who are dedicated to soundproofing rooms, recognize the advantages of sound isolation booths and even more so when it comes to portable booths. 

Although portable sound booths can isolate as much or more sound than wall treatments, at a lower cost, and with the flexibility that they can be transported, the soundproofing is not at 100%. However, the advantages are quite significant. You can record without disturbing your neighbors; and your family can continue their activities without the need for everything in the house to stop to avoid noises that affect the quality of the recording; In addition, a booth with good acoustic treatment not only reduces outside sound, but also helps to create a clean and professional sound.
