Getting Started With Home Recording

Home recording equipment can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. Knowing which budget purchases aren’t worth your time and which expensive items are past the point of diminishing returns of cost versus quality takes experience.

With a modest budget it is possible to get started recording and producing music. You may even have some of the necessary equipment already.

Heck, if you have a computer you already have most everything you need gear-wise. Add a $59 USB mic (a decent starter USB mic is the Samson Q2U), and you can record professional sounding audio, assuming you have a bit of knowledge. But hey, that’s what we’re here for:).

Our 5-part post series, How To Build A Home Recording Studio shows you how to get started, including everything you need for several different levels of initial budget.

  1. pls I need your help I have a recording studeo in my house but am laking sound card how can I get it how? my mobile line 08083795118

    1. Samuel, your best be is to buy an external audio interface box, such as the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, that can plug into a usb port on your computer. Then you can plug microphones or instruments into the Scarlett. It costs just over $100. If that is too expensive, try a USB mic like the Samson C01U. I hope that helps.
