I completely agree. Use as many sound blankets and carpets as possible. I use huge heavy duty 6'x10' bead spreads that I picked up years ago for cheep temporary studio wall treatment. These are about 1" thick and at lease three times as heavy per square foot as moving blankets. I like them because they provide a lot more isolation then moving blankets. We recorded a short film a few weeks ago that had a NOISY IT server room that could not be turned off. We needed to shoot a couple scenes just on the other side or the server room's hollow core door. It was like recording next to a leaf blower. We set up a sound blanket inside and outside the door and when we were shooting right in front of the door, we held up another two layers or blanket. We were able to use all the production audio from these scenes with minimal noise reduction.

Best regards,
