there are all sorts of ways to do it, with varying success.
Auralex sell a
product called platfoam, which is intended to be put under a sheet based platform
or it can be done with 100mm Rockwool slabs.... the resonant
frequency and effectiveness will depend on the density of the rockwool, (or any other
spring, ) the mass of the platform, and anything on it, and how hard the dynamic load
*(drummer) is kicking....
or a sheet topped framework can be sat on springs,
the springs can be many things.... i've even done it with old tyres in
the past.... (smelly unless repeatedly washed, then painted)
this will help with impact noise transmission, it will do bugger all for airborne LF noise
... which is not insignificant either....
