A muffler where? The "exhaust" from the pump is the air being pushed into the tank.

Not really...

You would need to put it in a sound deadening/reducing enclosure. You would still need openings for air flow and cooling.

Putting it outside while in use is an easy way to "move" the noise.

Ya, the only way I know to reduce the noise of a running compressor is to put it in another room. My big compressor is installed in my tool room [8'x15'] even if the door to the shop [from that room] is open, it's not as loud as being in the same space.

Yeah, put it far away and run extra air line to where you are

That or replace it with a quieter one, which is what I did with my first one - it was so noisy I would leave the garage when it cycled, man I hated that thing....
