Small Home Recording Studio Equipment
When you talk about a perfect home recording studio equipment, the easiest way to go is to just buy a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and attach it to your computer plus a monitor and microphone, with necessary cabling and the software. That's it; your mini home studio is ready and all set to go.
Full-fledged Home Recording Studio Equipment:
When you think of a full-fledged system, not just a mini home studio setup, the basic thing you have to know is that technology available as new and latest today is getting almost outdated in a month. So do not think, "I must have the latest technology equipment all the time". The important factor is you have to see whether the equipment you select fulfills your needs. You need not worry about the latest arrivals in the market.
With a good home recording studio equipment, you can record, edit, mix and use your software to auto tune and use samplers (today's technology even allows you to use a virtual instrument).
Next comes the interface for your recording, you can select either a PCI or a USB audio interface. Other interfaces available are the PCMCIA for your laptops, mLan and Firewire. The software comes next.
As I discussed earlier you can buy software that fulfills all your recording requirements, you should look into Sequencers for Digital Audio and MIDI, Audio Effects Software, DJ Software, Notation Software, Software Synthesizers and Samplers, Interactive Composing Software etc. I have mentioned only a few, you have more than 300 software packages available.
Other than the above mentioned, you will need microphones, cables, speaker sets and monitors. Microphones, Pre amplifiers and cables are available easily. You have to be specific in buying the monitor and the speaker systems according to your convenience and the budget available. Because a wide range of self powered speakers, active and passive subwoofers are available in and you can make your own decision on what you want to do the job. Assembling all this together can make a perfect home recording.
