Basic Home Studio - Skip the Newbie Mistakes
A lot of musicians have started their recording careers from simple beginnings, ie, recording in
their basements, a spare room or a friend's garage. This is because recording in a professional
studio is very costly, and since it will take a long time to perfect that particular cut, recording
costs will just be too much. For bands who are just hoping to get the attention of potential record
producers, spending a lot on renting studios will not seem like an economically viable option.
Hence, most start-up bands turn to making a home studio to cut costs. It saves precious dollars
and even makes the experience much more fun.

Basic Home Studio Costs
It takes triple the effort to record in your home studio: remember that you are not only a musician
now; you're also the producer of the record and the sound engineer, too. This requires some
technical knowledge on both hardware and software necessary to recording. Some of the things
you need to know are the tools and tricks available to you that can help you produce a better-
sounding record. If you are not yet confident with your technical capabilities, better do your
research first on the many things you need to know such as what type of recorder to use, what
software goes best with your hardware, how to record vocals and other instruments, and how to
cut, edit and mix tracks. Of course, it goes without saying that there will be some money
involved here so you also need to outline your resource plan - do you buy the things you need,
borrow them, or rent them? You can also find a friend who understands these things and is
willing to lend a helping hand for free. Once you have these things sorted out, have comfort in
the fact that you can record any kind of music with your very own home studio.
