How important is it to measure the level of unwanted noise generated by the system itself? Also, what normally causes inteference from external sources to occur?

Naturally, if external noise is loud enough to be noticeable, it is distracting and annoying. Sources are anything from ground loops or bad connections to equipment that generates strong EMF like motors and unshielded transformers. Digital equipment sometimes makes a grungy sound.

At times, it becomes difficult to trace these sources and so I normally prefer to get an expert to handle all that. Nothing is as distracting as external noise that cannot be controlled.

How do we sound proof a simple music room converted from a bedroom so that external noise won't be a problem when we are recording something?
