As you can imagine, there are so many different ways you can build your home recording studio.
The video above provides you with some useful tips to help set you up for success as you record music from home.
What we particularly like about the video is you get information on why you use certain recording components, and how to choose the components based on your needs, to insure you get the best quality recording without unwanted sounds.
The video also takes into account people who are on a tight budget so you get tips on how to choose components that you actually need. For example, if you record vocals and guitars and only want to get one microphone, you can opt for a good condenser microphone (like the Rode NT1-A Condenser Mic), as opposed to getting a dynamic and ribbon microphone at this point.
The video also discusses how to get sounds out of or into your computer, the types of headphones you should use under different circumstances…and more.
You’ll also see that the video talks about different tools for home recording, like Komplete 8.
Komplete 9 is actually available now and is an amazing resource
(it comes with Kontakt, Reaktor, 63 more software instruments and effects, and 16,000 sounds, all on a hard drive).
If this is out of your price range we recommend you start out with equipment and software that best fits your needs and budget, and upgrade your tools when the time is right.
The most important thing is that you just get started. Whether this means utilizing what you have access to at your fingertips right now, or adding new recording resources to your arsenal…just make sure you give home recording a try.
