We have all the answers for you right here. Setting up a home recording studio isn’t difficult.  With the right research, you could well be on your way recording your first jig in a few days from now.

So, where to start?

Before you begin investing in the tools required to set up your home recording studio, there are a few must-do tasks: 

  • Check for the most suitable room to set up your studio in. One that has the least entry points for  sounds or noises to enter would be ideal. 
  • Decide upon the kind of studio you want set up. Do you wish to record only audio in your studio or do you have plans to make it an audio-cum-video recording studio. The equipment needed in both cases are different. So a decision on the kind of studio you want to build is better made at the beginning before you end up spending on the tools needed.
  • The next step to building your recording studio is to sound-proof the room you wish to convert. Make sure to seal the windows with sound-proof seals that are easily available in the market. If you are setting up a professional studio, you will have to invest in foam padding for the floor, walls and windows. But if your home recording studio is a basic, economical one, sound-proof seals will do the trick.

Once the room infrastructure is set, you will require some basic equipment to make your home recording studio functional.

Computer: One of the basic things to buy for setting up a recording studio is a good desktop or a laptop. Consider the processing speed and memory of the computer before swiping your card for it. It is also a good idea to upgrade the sound card that comes by default with computers today, as they may not be robust enough for  high-quality recordings. 

Audio Editing Software: The software’s interface is what you will use to manage all your recordings. If you have a tight budget, there are freewares like Audacity that work well. Adobe Audition and Oceanwave are a couple of other softwares generally used in small recording studios.

Mic:  A good quality mic is another investment that you need to make. You will have to choose between  a mic with a basic sound adjustable system or a more expensive option that has a separate mixer.

Other equipment:  Other equipment that may be necessary depending on the kind of recording you wish to produce, are lights, a good quality camera, green screen, filters for the mic and light.

With the basic equipment setup, you are all set to produce  your first recording.
