Silicone vs. Other Sealants for Sound Proofing
There are different products on the market today that are very costly, that just regular silicone can take the place of.
When sealing joints, boxes, wall to floor etc. just regular silicone preforms exceptionally well. This can be purchased at your local hardware store for less than 5 dollars a tube. I would suggest purchasing this one case at a time when constructing a new studio. It can increase your sound proofing by 20 percent or more compared to using no sealant at all. This is why I strongly suggest using silicone rather than the expensive “designer” sealants on the market today.
