The process requires the addition of an insulating material is inserted into or onto the walls and roof, thereby minimizing or all together eliminating whatever sounds that are produced from outside of the protected area. This application is most commonly associated with recording studios, as it is required to ensure that outside sounds do not interfere with the recording process and that the recording artist can capture the highest quality sound possible.
