    the apartment i moved from was nothin but young niggaz like me that aint give a fuck about noise and all that shit......well now i moved to a new apartment where theres stuck up whites, asians, and indians who likes it quiet.......

    so now i gotta do somethin to dampen the sound in this closet, cuz i got rappers that YELL when they spit....sooooo...........tell me some good tactics on this

    i'm thinkin about spenin 140 on a lil sound absorber kit...but if this is possible without spendin this much money, let me kno....

    I'm in the same situation

    I got shelves in my closet now so I stocked it full of thick blankets..

    The sound is pretty dead now

    Now all I need is some light..without having more wires going in

    If you know you are loud... you have to live around people are age.... but if you in a more mature apartment building.... it comes with the territory.....

    best this to do is what im building now..use pcv pipes to make both and use "moving blankets" to absorb the sound..check ebay for moving blankets there exspensive but not as much as the foam..or jus goto a matress store cuz when people buy new beds they take in there old beds an its illegal to sell used beds so most of the time they'll jus givem to ya..

    Not criticizing, just asking... BUT

    I thought that it wasn't necessarily good to have totally dead recording booth...

    I know this may sound like a dumb question to y'all

    but by buying that will it help from nieghbors not hearing it as loud?

    like if you had down stairs neighbor would they hear it? if you trying to lay a track down at like 3 in the morning?

    I want to know because my homie have this same problem at his home studio
