Building a home studio Don't know what?

Discussion in 'Microphones (live or studio)' started by sandboxwalker, Feb 26, 2007.

  1. Hey- i am home recording illiterate. I am trying to build a small home studio for demoing tracks before I could to a full studio. I don't know whether or not I should go usb interface, what programs, mics, and midi's to use? Or should I use a digital workstation with burner. I want to be able to create lots of sounds as well as recording acoustic and electric, and paino. Not sure what to do. I have limited budget as well. Please Help

    this post would make an EXCELLENT foundation for an FAQ if someone is willing to write it. . .

    for my own little recording set up I use

    software... Guitar Rig 2- guitars and basses and some vocal processing
    Ezdrummer - drums (midi)
    Ableton Live 6

    Hardware.........duo core intel pc
    M-Audio Oxygen 8 midi controller
    Fast track usb interface
    MXL-990 Condenser Mic
    Shure Dynamic mic

    this is pretty bare bones but I get by with some pretty great sounding recordings

    my set up is,

    intel iMac 2ghz, 1gb ram 250gb hard drive
    inkel 16 channel annalouge mixer
    m audio 410 external sound card
    m powered protools 7

    working on monitors at the mo...

    get a mixer, an interface and a computer with decent specs and you'll be away.

    including computer though my set up cost over $6000 NZD
