Recording Studio Acoustic Panels
Recording Studio Acoustic Panels for First-Rate Results
A complex science explained in a nutshell
Building a recording studio is not an everyday discipline. A constructor who is still inexperienced in this field can quickly become overwhelmed by a recording studio's requirements. The construction is in principle no different from any other space, but acoustic science is a discipline you don't learn overnight. First, you need to understand the difference between sound absorption and sound insulation.

Sound insulation will keep noises from outside entering the recording studio. Vice versa too; your client's neighbours won't necessarily appreciate his musical ambitions.
Sound waves can be reflected or absorbed, and the science of acoustics is largely about what to reflect, what to transmit, and what to absorb. Environments for music want more reverberation, enough to "warm" the sound with reflections. If too much is absorbed, less sound reaches the audience and it sounds "dry" or "dead", the musicians need to work harder, and the lack of reverberation makes the slightest error more apparent.
Sound absorption serves to dampen the reflections within a room.
- In this respect, one of the first things to learn is understanding how you dampen sound reflections in a room to eliminate reverberant noise.
- The next step is covering the ceiling, walls, and floor with the appropriate material. Cork and carpets do well on the floor. The best materials to cover the walls and ceilings of a recording studio are the acoustic panels and tiles from Australian Plaster Acoustics. Perforated panels will minimise noise and reduce echo.
More than Only Acoustic Properties
For your client's recording studio, our acoustic panels have excellent acoustic qualities, but they offer more:
- Natural gypsum is an inexpensive material, and the panel production process is economical too. Combining these with the panel's reduced thickness results in a competitive price.
- The perforations come in different sizes and patterns, offering many decorative options.
- Plaster tiles and panels perform well under humid conditions.
If you want to learn more about the characteristics of our acoustic panels, or if you need advice on sound insulation and sound absorption, contact us. We are proud of our experience, and always glad to share it.
Tip: Acoustic design will achieve its optimum and most cost effective potential when it is considered early in concept or masterplanning stage. The sooner an acoustic engineer is engaged, the higher your chances of avoiding costly retrofit solutions.
