Music Studios

  • We work with you to create a studio design that nails what you’re about
  • We custom build the studio from the ground up
  • We acoustically treat the studio for its intended use

One of City Insulation’s areas of expertise is in the design and build of professional music recording studios.

It goes without saying that precise soundproofing and acoustics is essential for such spaces. Not only does external noise potentially interfere with the recording process but producers and engineers need to be assured of the purity of the captured sound. We employ a complexity of techniques and materials to create amazing acoustic spaces, in which to work, practice and record.

Here are just a few ways City Insulation can help...

Keeping distractions at bay

Effective soundproofing in music recording studios is essential for isolating external noise sources, such as traffic sounds, nearby construction, or any other disturbances that can compromise recording quality. Acoustic barriers such as dense walls, specially modified acoustic doors, and resilient sound isolation clips are commonly employed to prevent noise leakage and ensure a controlled recording environment.

Where acoustics are essential

In addition to isolating external noise, soundproofing also addresses internal acoustics in the recording studio. Using sound-absorbing materials such as acoustic panels, diffusers, and bass traps, we can minimise unwanted reflections, echoes, and reverberations. These acoustic measures create a balanced sound environment, for accurate monitoring and precise sound capture during recordings.

Specific techniques: walls, floors, and ceilings

Soundproofing professional recording studios involves the structural elements of the space. Isolated ‘room within a room’ structures are employed to ensure the highest soundproofing performance is achieved. Floating floors and suspended ceilings with decoupled frames help to prevent vibrations and airborne sound from traveling through the structure. With up to 7 layers including cement particle board, Tecsound and a variety of plasterboards on sound isolation clips, we have a unique design-build-install approach that few competitors can match.

Sealing the sound barrier

Windows and doors are obvious weak points for sound transmission. Installing twin double-glazed acoustic glass windows of different thicknesses or replacing the second pane with secondary acoustic glazing, helps to minimise sound leakage while still allowing natural light into the recording studio. Fire doors with heavy mass, perimeter and drop seals, with low reverb reveals provide additional protection against sound intrusion.

If you are planning the construction of a new music studio, or the renovation of an existing studio, let City Insulation partner with you to create an exceptional soundproofed and acoustic space.

Great experience start to finish - quickly came round and quoted, providing confidence in what they would do and who would be involved, co-ordinated all the individual workers who worked to a high standard. The work itself was done to a high quality and on-time, and the difference has been amazing - great company, would highly recommend.

We are all absolutely delighted with City Insulation and the work they have just completed at my brother's house in Liverpool. Sadly my brother is living with alzheimers now and he does have some noisy outbursts now and again, which is natural for this horrible illness. He is being cared for 24/7 in a normal semi-detached house in Liverpool however his neighbours are not normal and keep complaining and putting in complaints to the police / council etc. I found Adam/City Insulation on the internet and he was so understanding and came up with exactly the right solution. All the carers in... the house are delighted and its made their job easier as they no longer worry about the next door neighbours who have got to find something else to complain about now! A big thanks to Adam and his team and if you have any noise issues etc you now know who to contact! (Ps very clean, very quick job, great value for money)read more

Best experience I've had with any tradesman to be honest. We needed to improve soundproofing in commercial meeting rooms/studios and he laid out the different options very clearly so we could make the best decision from a range of budgets. His team were extremely professional, delivered the work exactly when they said they would with zero delays. Very friendly and flexible with everything onsite. Would thoroughly recommend.
