Part 1: Beginner Home Recording Studio

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

Recording music in your own home has never been easier.  There are ton of tools, software and devices out there today that can help you set up a home recording studio at a fraction of the cost of hiring someone to do professional recording.  That said, it can be a bit daunting at first for the beginner.  What exactly does one need to start?  Can I do it without spending a small fortune?  How good will these recordings sound?

To help answer those questions, I’m going to run through my own home recording set up to give you an idea of what’s needed and how easily it can be done.  All in I spent roughly $2270.00 to create my home studio – but that includes the $1700 I spent when I bought myself a new MacBook Black computer, which I use for more than just home recording.  If you take out the MacBook, it was roughly $570 for the mics, hard drive and audio interface.
