    What do you mean? Do you really mean "treat" your studio, or are you really trying to keep noise from coming in/out of a space? The former is relatively easy and inexpensive...the latter is definitely not.

    Go to thrift store
    Buy blankets
    Also see if they will sell you a couple empty racks that they hang clothes on
    Go home and assemble.

    Dont know how it will turn out, but when I saw the need for advice I jumped right in.
    Price is relative anyways. Price is not the absolute determinant of quality and value. Sun light is free, air is free, water is free, whereas you could pay hundreds and thousands for computer software and human made devices. -A Genius

    Not bad advice, but it'll only work for the high stuff. Again, the biggest problem in the room, i.e., low end, will remain untouched. You need thicker, denser treatment for that.

    Besides, the OP never let us know whether he meant "soundproof" or "treat".

    Just to add this is not sound proofing but "room treatment".

    True, Glenn.

    I had to learn the difference, as well. The average person, when they hear the result of decreased flutter echo, call it "soundproofed." In reality, you are far from done.

    Guess I should have xplained more. d[*_*]b
    This type of method will not produce Berkley style dynamics, but for what you gave by way of a question, I dropped some pennies on it. In the grand scheme of things do what you can with what you have and keep stacking dead ppl till you can afford to not do it cheap. Mass media is everywere. d[*!*]b No offence taken, just saw the error of my post. Thx guyz

    Go to a carpet store and buy the cheapest carpet. Just hang that on the wall. You don't need to cover every inch, you can leave some spots open to keep a small natural reflexion. Make sure you hang carpet behind your speakers and in the corners if your speakers are close to the corners. Try to get carpet with a rude surface and cut it into pieces that you can easyly hang on the walls.
    It really works for me! Also put carpet on the floor offcourse!
