Bought a house recently. Basement walls are 90% framed out, basically one large space, a laundry/utilities room, a bathroom, and a 13'x13' room that isn't framed yet. This will be the "control room" Electric is run to everywhere except the unframed room. I am not trying to have the perfect studio down here or anything, not going to float a floor or anything big, but my band will definitely be practicing and I will be recording. More of a nice project studio for me. So I'd like to do as much as I can. Was hoping to get to insulating by next week sometime. Any tips for this and finishing the rest of my basement? Should I spring for the more expensive stone wool, or will the fiberglass be the same soundwise? Anything else I can do? I am going to just carpet tile the floors, and would like to leave the ceiling unfinished, paint it black and just run lots of foam in between the rafters. Problem is all of the ductwork. Very noisy and echo prone. Would it be ok to somehow finish around the ductwork and leave the rest open? or do I really need to put up an entire ceiling? Any other tips much appreciated.
