While your plan might help a little , don't expect big changes . I did insulation, putty pads , MLV,5/8" OSB and 2 layers of 5/8" drywall with a green glue competitor between all layers and it helped , just not much.Without my subwoofer on I may be able to go 10% louder on my system before it bothers my neighbor . Problem being flanking paths , 2 walls at right angles on either side of the wall I treated , floor and ceiling . The wall I did isn't load bearing , so it was built on top of the shared subfloor so theres a direct flanking path from my space to my neighbor .
I don't know if the resilient channel will make a difference since I didn't use it , but my gut says no because of all the flanking , but if you have a way to minimize flanking paths either now or in the future then It may be a good idea.
