    7 Tips For Planning a Home Recording Studio
    By Andrew Winthorp

    Since the advent of the digital age, creating a home recording studio is becoming a reality for many music enthusiasts who desire to produce their own work. Computer technology is no longer just reserved for commercial studios. Inexpensive home alternatives allow music enthusiast to Ďset up shopí in the comfort of their own home. Here are several tips for making best use of your home music setup.

    Tip #1: Establish a workspace within your home that can be dedicated to recording. To make the room as perfect as possible, consider using the services of an acoustician to line the recording space with specialized diffusion material so that audio reflections are controlled. This space will also serve as a creative enclave for the storage of your equipment. Soundproofing also helps with excessive noise to minimize the chances your neighbors will come knocking on your door.

    Tip #2: Purchase a powerful computer with plenty of ram and a powerful processor. A dual core processor will be able to handle your operations. You will also need plenty of hard drive space to store large music files.

    Tip #3: Get a copy of some powerful audio software to help bring your creations to life. The industry standard favorite is Pro Tools. There are many educations courses, books and online resources that can help you learn to utilize this software to its full potential. You can also get many plug-in modules to enhance the functionality of software.

    Tip #4: Get a solid interface to interact with your recording equipment. There are many choices here that can interface with your computer via USB connection. Donít relay on any inbuilt audio inputs or microphones that come preinstalled in your computer. They tend to under perform and detract from the quality of your production.

    Tip #5: Get a decent mixer. Although many of the tasks handled by a mixer can be performed by the computer, the flexibility provided by more advanced mixing boards allows you to input more advanced sound sources.

    Tip #6: Donít skimp out on the microphone. Get a good quality piece that plugs into your audio interface. Donít rely on any plug-in that connects directly to your computer.

    Tip #7: Get hold of some high quality speakers. Headphones are great for keeping the neighbors happy late at night but a good set of speakers with half way clear sound will bring your production to life.

    The above tips will serve you will if you carefully evaluate your studio requirements, choose a good quality setup and set aside a specially designed area in your house to bring your music to life!
