I dont think you could keep the balls from rattling, but you could probably put something on the outside of your hopper to absorb the sound.

I can't think of anything that you could put on your hopper that wouldn't make it huge. I think that pink styrofoam insulation would work, but you would probably want to shave it down. You can buy acoustic foam that might work. Honestly I can't think of many things that would silence your paintballs rattling.
