I'll look into the hat channel. I called quietrock to find the nearest dealer to me but their office was closed. I'll try tommorrow. Home Depot does have it and there aren't too many lumber areas around. I read somewhere that one sheet of quiet rock is equivalent to the sound deadening of 8 sheets of sheetrock..

Another product you may want to look at - used for ceiling/wall or floor applications.

hat channel has many installation issues that have proven to short circuit the effectiveness for sound deadening. Best to not bother with it as a DIYer. Check out the details here. http://www.quietsolution.com/Cost_Be..._vs_QR_scn.pdf It does add STC to a wall (50) But not the 72 that the new soundproofing drywall will add. And since you are making an isolated wall, you have not direct contact transmission here to deal with, which is what the hat channel is compensating for.

I'll accept that. I can see the problems a DIY'er (especially) could cause.

I still believe it would be beneficial (even with a freestanding wall since you would still be isolating the rock from the studs, which are still going to transmit sound from the other side although not as much as a rocked wall) but due to the great possibility of misinstallation, it would be likely less effective than intended.
