Khelo… my name is Inego Mantoya… You Keeeld my Father… Prepare to..
Today’s post is about a product I’ve heard allot about and is gaining popularity in the Voice Over and Home Studio Industries.
This is not an advertisement and I am not getting paid by these folks but as someone who is constantly trying to improve the sound of his voiceover recording environment by making it quieter and quieter I came across several references to something called Green Glue.
Apparently what this product does is absorb sound and instead of letting it through… it turns it into heat.
According to their website: Green Glue has just been named one of Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler’s 100 Best New Products!
This is how they describe it:
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is fast, easy to use, highly cost effective, and it works. Independent lab tests prove that just one layer of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound between two layers of drywall or other similar building material dissipates up to 90 percent of noise. Unlike competitive soundproofing products, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound cuts out the low frequency noises commonly produced by home entertainment and theater systems.
In Egypt, where I live you can’t really get your hands on this stuff… I’d have to get it shipped over and the additional cost would not make this a cost effective solution for me. But that doesn’t mean you guys can’t benefit from it.
Here is the pricing for this stuff
|Green Glue Pricing|
28 oz Tubes
|12 tubes per case||$175.00|
Green Glue Pails
|Used for Pails||$49.99|
Here is the application method for this stuff… it acts allot like Caulk so if you have any experience applying that stuff then you won’t have any issues with Green Glue…. although this stuff takes something like a week to cure.
No the idea is simple… you buy this stuff and place it on a new sheet of drywall… then put that on top of the old drywall you have… then squish them together.
Here is a weird animated video on how to use it:
here is a video showing a real person going through the process:

If you have used Green Glue on your studio and have noticed the results this company claims… can you please leave your story. I’d love to know if this solution is really what people are saying it is.
