    Hello guys, it's my first post here! I have a question.
    I have a basement that I'm putting new drywall into, and I'm turning into a studio. Now, what should I buy to go along with it?
    I've got:

    A computer, and Cubase to go with it.

    MXL 990 Microphone

    Guitar rig 2 for guitars and bass

    Drum Set

    Now, I need to know, I'm VERY restricted on my budget. For the monitors, could I get these?

    And anything else I should buy? :)

    How are you installing the drywall? Did you prep the block in any way? What's it look like over your head...empty or insulation/sheetrock/something else?

    Personally I would not buy those because they look like cheep computer speakers and in that case you could use any speaker.
    If there is a music store that you can stop in at and get them to explain how a monitor is different, you might change your mind on what to by.
    I started with cheep speakers and then went to head phones but its hard to hear the bass level when mixing (what I found)
    By the way, Insulation in the ceiling would keep the wife off your case, LOL, did in my case.
    this is a good buy.
