They don't look very nice either! So, try picking up some 2'x4' sheets of hardboard and make yourself some absorption panels using 1" slabs of mineral wool the same size placed over the top and a dustsheet laid over and tightly stapled from behind. They'll look better and, more importantly, will actually work when hung on opposite walls. If you'd prefer to invest in something ready made for the job, try some Aurelex, ProFoam or similar.
These companies make a range of products for studios and even make room packs with all the different elements you'll need for different sized rooms. As you'd expect, this comes at a price, but gives professional results both sonically and visually. If this soundproof space is to be used as a recording studio as well as a practice room, your next consideration is whether to go for a one-room studio or to have a separate control room.
It may seem obvious that a recording studio needs two rooms, one to record in and one to listen back in, but for some musicians it can sometimes be easier to work in the same room as the equipment. One compromise in this situation is running a second computer monitor into the live room and using a wireless keyboard and mouse to control things. This way each room can be tuned to it's optimum potential. Building a studio can be a time-consuming process and you'll no doubt encounter setbacks along the way.
As a result it can be frustrating as the time ticks by and costs add up, but try not to lose sight of the fact that once it's complete, the space is yours to create your own studio environment in. You'll be free to play when you want without disturbing anyone and you can be as creative as you like. That's got be worth the effort hasn't it?

Reply 1 year ago. You can make a "workstation" with just a computer, etc, but don't fool yourself into thinking it's a studio. Which condensor mic should the horn section set up in front of lol? A real recording studio can record live musicians on separate tracks, and overdub, punch-in, etc. I think this article on soundproofing a room for a studio is pretty good, especially the parts about decoupling.
Reply 3 years ago. Step 4: Don't forget to Pretty in-depth. Is there any way to temporarily make a FREE soundproofing without having to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars and a whole lot of time? Reading many Instructables, perhaps the majority show an appalling lack of grammar and the inability to effectively communicate a linear process in a clear manner. If one wishes to write up their project, it is essential to assume the reader has no understanding of the process and include each step, materials, sources, etc. An Instructables author must proofread their work, by assuming the reader knows nothing.
They must also carefully check their writing for mistakes in grammar, usage and spelling. This Instructable was very good in the information presented, but could use some grammar checking and the author could have avoided some confusing instructions and lack of sources had he asked several friends to read it over. One thing he did not mention is to make the walls of the inner room asymmetrical in order to avoid a standing wave. Apart from this, I think he covered the major and minor points of soundproofing quite well.
