    There's no such thing as "sound isolation foam".

    absorption foam,
    auralex might be the best known, expensive though. You have some companies making more or less the same stuff for less. DAP for instance, American comanpy. Still expensive, but a bit cheaper then auralex.

    Sound isolation is a very time consuming, costly job. That's probably not what you intended. You probably talked about accoustic treatment of your room to deal with reflection and such.
    When you actually meant getting a room not to leak any sound, like being able to play loud music without your neighbours complaining, the most important is that every little opening needs to be closed. You even need to go as far as filling your electric wall sockets and stuff like that. Then buying specialized sound proofed vent systems and such.
    You basically need to aim for making the room able to hold water and the walls need to absorb and diffuse sound as much as possible.
    If you need to practice a loud instrument a lot, you usually get the furthest by getting something like this:

    Which will suck because of the reflection and needs treatment

    These guys among others supply you with accoustic boxes to place in rooms

    Just google for tips but make sure you get your terms right:

    Might be the foam for under the speakers so it isolates the speakers from the table (unless that has a different name). Anyway I ordered some on amazon for around $20. It says it'll reduce harmonic coupling, whatever the hell that is.

    Looks good but basically you want the studio to be the place of inspiration so the more you feel comfortable and motivated in your own studio the better.

    I usually change things up every once in a while when I feel that I've been working in the same environment for too long - otherwise I would end up in a "rut" without motivation or inspiration whatsoever (Happened to me multiple times before).
