How can I dampen the noise of my Violin?

I live in an apartment with relatively thin walls and out of respect to my neighbors I’d like to be a little quieter while practicing. How can I do this without actually playing too quietly?

    There is this little plastic thing that clips onto the bridge of your violin called a mute. It looks just like this in the picture they're not very expensive.

    It can’t be done on an acoustic violin. All those people suggesting a mute don’t realises that all they do is alter to tone, not the volume.

    foam mute between the strings and the soundboard. put it right up next to the bridge. if you don't have foam you can make one out of all sorts of stuff, a sock will do.
