Imagine that you are driving your car, rejoicing in the ride. Your favorite song starts. You feel super relaxed and cheerful.
However, a moment brings you back to the harsh reality – something is impairing overall the feeling the song gives you. You start to listen more carefully and notice some rattling. It is coming from one of the doors in your car.
Oh no! Well, it is time to think about this problem and solve it as fast and painless as you can so that you can continue enjoying music in your car.
Yeah, the world is a big noisy place, we know that, but what can one do about it? As a matter of fact, one gets the right picture of how many sounds are there only when one starts building a studio.
It’s a terrifying moment indeed because you realize that you are about to be in a real battle – human vs sound! But, the good news is that, with my useful tips, you can actually be a winner.
Here I shall tell you more about soundproofing and acoustic treatment in general. Are they the same thing? Which is the most successful way of dealing with various sounds from different sources? These are just some of the questions we shall try to answer.
The big question of acoustics is the one that troubles all musicians, and having a top-quality equipment is not always helpful, if the room properties themselves do not allow sound to be well distributed.
Hearing noise all the time can be very stressful and annoying.
Your neighbors may be fighting and you have to hear their shoutings, or they are doing some renovation work or their kids are playing the TV loudly. These type of situations are frequent, and it is not much you can do to stop or avoid them. You can’t move just because your neighbor’s dog is barking too much.
So, the best solution is for you to find a way to soundproof your home. You don’t need to be an architect to or an acoustic consultant to learn how to soundproof a room. You can do it yourself at home.
The best part is that it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of cheap soundproofing materials that you can use with good results.
I have always been a dog person (Well, that is an understatement, seeing as I have five of them at the moment). Usually, I prefer adopting them while they are still puppies so that I have all the time to get attached to them and teach them a couple of tricks.
Dogs are just loveable creatures and most households will own one as a pet at some point or another. However, the one annoying thing, besides cleaning up after them, is the constant whining and barking especially when they are still pups.
With my first two puppies, I had to go through the torture of their barking and whining. It was so bad that I even considered giving them away. The whining was especially terrible at night as I prefer not to bring them to bed with me.
While trying to find a solution to all the noise, I stumbled upon the dog crates. The fact that I could make them soundproof seemed very lucrative and I immediately bought one. I worked on soundproofing it further and I loved the results.
Although you can not make the dog crate 100% soundproof, it certainly helps in reducing the noise levels in your house.
If the barking and whining of your adorable creature get on your nerves, then this article will be of great help to you. Here’s how you can solve your problem.
What better place for band practice than your own garage? Well, there’s one problem with it – the neighbors.
Most of the time, the neighbors will not hear the clear sound but the drums, as their sound is the most problematic one to isolate.
As a part of a teenage band, I jammed a lot. Then, the neighbors started whining almost every single time we started our session. You could hear the doorbell in the middle of our song. No doubt, it was really annoying for both sides – us and them, so we started looking for a solution.
However, as every teenage rock band, we were short with cash, so we needed a cheap and fast solution to our problems. As back then there were no developed networks of articles like this, we started searching for the possible solutions in the books, asking our older ones, and even some architects.
Basically, we tried some mixtures of solutions that you will be familiar with, shortly after you’ve read this story. And some of them worked!
