    Cuz from looking at my school hall's setup,those heavy cloths block EVERY sound from the inside to the outside,even if we are screaming inside no one could hear a thing outside.

    Or should I just change my door to a more rigid one?

    Thanks

    No, it won't. Your school experience notwithstanding, the physics don't add up.

    So what exactly is the principle behind the sound isolation on stages after the cloth is closed? I know for sure that without anything covering the stage even walking on the wooden deck is loud as hell.

    Well, of course there is some high frequency dampening, but aside from that it's purely your ears trying to line up with what your eyes are seeing. Pure placebo effect.

    Jackie,

    There are lots of Voo-Doo / snake oil salesmen out there. Do you have a link to the 'sound proofing' curtain? I'd like to add it to my VooDoo list.

    Mass - Air - Mass

    Only way.
    You are in good hands with Frank.

    Cheers,
    John

    It is so terrible to hear that almost all beginners in audio producing or such are cheated by commercial lies. Whenever an average person think of sound isolation and such the first things that comes to mind is foam pads and odd shaped wall,rarely do we know the difference between soundproofing and acoustic treatment,even shops comfuse us by claiming their products in between the two.
    There isn't a specific site I was referring to,just google soundproof curtain and
    you will see lots of sites selling similar products.

    I couldn't agree with you more, and that's why John and I post here and elsewhere. Believe it or not, it's not for the purposes of generating sales. We get very, very little sales traffic from doing this. It's mostly in the interest of dispelling all the silliness out there...and there's plenty of it, trust me. Don't even get us started on the audiophile stuff...

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.
