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

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.

Adam visited our property to advise on noise from a pool plant room that was coming into the house. He advised on the best approach to eliminate the vibration that was being heard. On his advice this has now been resolved. Adam was great to deal with and we would highly recommend his company
Katja K.
The customer service was fantastic with our quotes updated several times to match our requirements. The team that came out were very efficient and stayed late to finish the job in one day without being asked to. The sound proofing is of really high quality and we haven't heard any noises at all from our neighbours since it was installed
Peter D.
I can't praise City Insulation enough they are very professional, informative, courteous and they certainly know their stuff. They completed our lounge and dining room soundproofing in two days, which was completed with great care and respect to our home and furnishings (thanks to a great installation team). Do yourself a favour and choose City Insulation, it's no surprise that they get regular 5 star ratings.
