I moved into this 2 BR apartment on the 5th floor in a building residing in a main street (didn't think about it when I got it ), and even at night (even after 1-3 AM) there's always a car or a truck that moves in front of our building every minute or two.
I need to record some software tutorials for community channel and for possible commercial production offer as well.
With the noise coming from the street, and not being constant noise that I can isolate with an audio editor, I'm unable to make these recordings.
I have tried Acoustic Foam, making a box around me and the laptop, but this didn't seem to make a difference. I have tried going into a room with closed window and door but the window is only glass and the noise still comes (lower, but obvious) when closed. I also tried going to toilet, but the echo was so strong even with foam.
Any other ideas to try? I cannot replace the windows / balcony etc. as I'm only renting.
