Are you a budding music producer, voice-over artist or a YouTuber, and are tired of the endless hassles of renting out a professional recording studio? We feel you.
But, do you know that you can set up your very own home recording studio in a budget?
Not only will it be accessible 24x7, it will help you save up a lot.
A computer system is the most basic part of your recording studio and the biggest chunk of the investment goes into it. We say so because a powerful system is ideal for handling heavy-duty music production software.
Further, you will need a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) to record, edit, mix and master audio files. FL Studio and Pro Tools are some top picks.
Monitor: The monitor captures the details of any audio that is recorded in the studio and allows you to process it. So, go for a monitor that gives out a balanced sound output.
Headphones: Headphones are used while recording and mixing audio tracks. They are of two types: closed-back and open-back headphones. Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Audio-Technica are some of the best headphones out there.
An audio interface is a hardware device used to connect your equipment with your computer system.
It is an important part of your studio as it converts the sound vibrations into electrical waves.
The DAW depends on the audio interface for plugging in the microphones, keyboard, and headphones for mixing.
Some of the best brands for audio interface are Focusrite, Beyerdynamic, Yamaha.
When you start from scratch, your collection grows gradually.
As enough time passes, you will have a set of microphones, all for different purposes.
But initially, you can pick a condenser microphone from Audio-Technica, Shure or Røde, as a good microphone enhances the output audio.
Also, buy a durable stand with a shock-mount to support your mic.
