NOISE VERDICT:

I worry enough. The last thing I need is to be rockin’ out and have the popo come a knockin’ on the door asking me if I heard a woman scream within the last hour, to which I always respond … I wouldn’t have heard it.

The Green Glue. Does it work? Well yes. And I’d probably agree as advertised if you actually succeed in perfect seals all around. Noise will find its way out and leak through any cracks just like air, especially trebles. For the window I used heavy duty foam weather tape as an in-between buffer from the two layer soundproof blankets to the 1/2″ TechShield board. Green Glue also sells acoustical caulk, although that really felt just like regular caulk and again comes down to leaving no gaps in your seals. You could probably save some money there, and instead invest in a Nintendo NES to be your most outdated piece of rack gear.
