What Would I Need To Get Started With Starting My Own Home Studio?
There are several things you would need to make sure you have in order to start building your own home studio. A lot of it is down to preference too, some producers use Apple products such as a MacBook Pro or an iMac, which usually provides you with GarageBand for free.
GarageBand is a DAW, a DAW is a Digital Audio Workstation. This is a software programme that you would use to record music with. GarageBand is an easy one to use, it has everything you need to get started and plenty of instrument patches already on it that you can use to record with. Other people like to use a Windows laptop.
Once you have that, you would want to make sure that you get the right DAW that works for you. If you’re starting out and have an Apple product, then maybe GarageBand or Logic Pro X. Or maybe Reaper if you have a Windows laptop. Ableton is also a hugely popular DAW that a lot of producers and DIY artists use for electronic music.
There are other creative benefits of using Ableton in that you can use sample pads that you can create cool beats and loops with. Ableton is usually also used with a Mac. If you wanted to go up a level, perhaps Pro Tools would be a good idea, however it can be quite complex so it wouldn’t be recommended to start off with that. As well as your Mac/laptop and DAW, you would also need to get an interface.
An interface is a device that would plug into your laptop or computer, you can plug your guitar, bass, piano etc and mic directly into the interface which would record directly into the DAW. There are several interfaces that are good to start out with. Focusrite interfaces are always good to begin with as they’re so easy to use.
A Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2nd/3rd Gen interface is always a good one to start off with. It has 3 direct inputs and a headphone input and it will plug directly into your laptop.
Headphones are also something you’d need. The best headphones for studio use are closed back, over the ear and noise cancelling so the sound from the headphones aren’t picked up via the mic. Having a good pair of headphones is important to hear the finer details and nuances you might not hear if through speakers. Sennheiser headphones are always good to start with and new usually affordable if you’re on a budget.
You would then need to download a driver for the interface to work with the DAW, Focusrite usually have free downloadable drivers on their website. You would also need a set of studio monitors, which are speakers that you can use to listen to your music as you go. KRK Rokit monitors are the most popular that a lot of producers have as they have a clear, natural and balanced.
Lastly, you would need a mic. A good mic to start out with would be the Rode NT1-A cardioid condenser mic, the perfect mic to start with, if you’re on a low budget too. It usually comes in a package with a pop shield, shock mount and an XLR cable to plug it into the interface.
You would need to also buy an isolation shield that would sit behind the mic so that it isolates the sound being recorded and that any external noise would be reduced. You may also want to think about sound proofing your studio if your mic does pick up an external sound from outside the room but also to sound proof the room from any sound getting out if you have any neighbours.
Lastly, a midi keyboard would be a good option to go for too. You would plug this straight into the laptop or interface via a usb cable. You can use this to record piano or even programme other instruments. It’s also a lot smaller than using a full piano and you can carry it around and record anywhere with it as long as you have your laptop. In conclusion, to start building your own studio you’d need;
- Interface and Driver
- Microphone including Pop Shield, Shock Mount, Cable
- Isolation Shield
- Sound Proofing
- Midi Keyboard
Once you have all these, you’re ready to go!
