The Ultimate Home Studio Guide - Berry's Buys

The home studio is the dream for many musicians. Get the lowdown on what you need to make your home studio functional and inspiring.

Spending time in the studio: there's nothing like it. So why not make your own home studio? Then you'll never have to leave...

Okay, probably not the most healthy approach. But putting together your own home studio is fun and help you to bring your ideas to full fruition. So how to go about it?

Well, there are a whole bunch of tools you can get, but when it comes to the essentials, there are four standouts.

The microphone is an obvious one. If you plan to record anything acoustically, the microphone will be your best friend.

The audio interface is less obvious. Up until relatively recently, a bulky tape machine was required to record. Nowadays, you're more like to use an audio interface o record digitally. Why? Because...

The DAW and the computer are where your musical ideas will come to life. In this highly competitive world, DAW and computer companies will be battling for your hard-earned dollar.

And after all this, you'll need to hear your masterpieces right? That's where headphones and monitors come to the fore.
