Another problem in home studios is sound insulation. Sound can interfere with your family and even neighbors, and household noise will prevent you from working on tracks. This is due to insufficient sound insulation between rooms and apartments.
In this case, the solution is the same as that of problem No. 1 - expensive acoustic treatment of the room with enhanced sound insulation and limiting the volume of monitoring.
Solutions that can really fix the problems of a home studio are most often beyond the budgets and physical capabilities of novice sound engineers, and tips on limiting the volume and using analyzers do not really improve the quality of monitoring and your mixes.
What can you do if your budget is limited and you can't change your room to another one?
Headphones can be both an addition and an alternative to monitors in a home studio. They have their drawbacks, which we described in the previous article, so we recommend using headphones in combination with the Realphones correction system.
