    Why is a tin roof not good? It would likely be placed on top of sheathing, not open trusses. Would it create noise that would transfer into audio tracking ? Vibrate loose?

    Tin roofs are ok in the way your describing. Otherwise they are noisy when it rains, and there’s a lot more care and attention to sealing it up well. I’m not sure what the mass of a tin sheet vs a 3/4” plywood, but it might weigh less, which isn’t ideal.

    So as a finish surface, their fine. Something like an asphalt shingle roof adds some mass, while being a resilient roof covering.

    My reference for the no-no would be like putting a studio in one of those steel garden sheds and not making any other provisions.

    I know how noisy an open Quonset and tin type like that would be. Charming to sleep in on a rainy night but wow..
    I’ve played in them during summer country festivals and omg... insane
