Sound Attenuation

There is a "Sound Attenuation" product on the
market that you might check out. I don't think
it rises to the level of "sound proofing" but it
may help. I appears identical to insulation. In
fact the drywall installer in my daughter's new
house wanted to know why we installed insulation
in the interior walls. My sketchy knowledge of
"sound proofing" leads me to think that it
involves the type of construction rather than an
add on material, i.e. offset studs, etc. It seems
the idea is to prevent sound transfer through the
structure rather than absorbing the sound.
