The dubbing King Software presents. A complete recording studio equipment list, a comprehensive guide. The complete recording studio equipment list studios go through four key stages in their evolution. One bedroom studio, which is typically a small set up next to your bedside and is the absolute minimum you need to record sound into your computer. Two dedicated home studio, which is typically a room in your house used solely for recording. That includes both studio furniture and acoustic treatment, three semi pro studio, which can be either at your home or a different location and typically includes the equipment necessary to record multiple musicians simultaneously for pro studio, which is typically located at a commercial facility and includes whatever tools necessary to produce professional results in the most efficient way possible. Stage one, the bedroom studio. While beginners always have that natural desire to want to learn everything right away. The truth is you really only need a few items to get started and anything more will probably just confuse you. So if you don't have a studio yet, a simple bedroom studio is the first milestone to aim for. And for a setup like this, you need the following nine items.
One computer, two door, three audio interface, four microphones, five headphones, six studio monitors, seven cables, eight microphone stands, nine pop filter. Now, let's look at each one in more detail.
One computer these days since recording studios are almost all digital. The first thing you need is a computer. And while you can just use any old computer at first, you should eventually invest in the best one you can afford. Because today's doors can be hard on processing resources and making full use of its features requires a blazing fast computer. So when you're ready to upgrade. Here's what I recommend. The best computer slash laptops for music production in the recent past. Typical example. MacBook Pro, Amazon, slash B and H, slash K, talk slash musicians two digital audio workstation D A.W.. The digital audio workstation is the primary software used to record, edit and mixed music on your computer. Originally designed to mimic, look and feel of analog mixing boards from the pre digital era. Their visual design has remained basically the same ever since. Pro Tools, which has long been the most famous store, grateful studios of all levels. But it is by no means the only option. Depending on your budget and style of music, the best one for you could be any one of around 10 possible options. Three audio interface. Once you've got the software, the next thing you will need is an audio interface, which has the primary purpose of providing all the connections to send your music. Into the computer when recording and. At the computer during playback, originally, this was pretty much all they did. But today's modern interfaces have evolved to incorporate many other features as well.
Those include. Digital conversion. Mike preamps. DNA boxes. Headphone amps. Monitor management in press studios.
Each of these items normally exists as high end standalone units organized within Iraq in home studios, though, these all in one budget interfaces can be a great way to save money and still get exactly what you need for microphones. The oldest item on this list by far, microphones have been around since long before recording studios ever existed. Yet, ironically, in all those years, very little about them has changed. And many of the top models from a half century ago are still among the industry standards of today. That's not to say that microphones are a simple topic because it's actually quite the opposite. Recording studios typically carry several dozen. Mike saw more each one used to achieve. A different sound. From different instruments. In different situations, five headphones. Unlike most studio gear, headphones are one item that we are all thoroughly familiar with. At least that's what most people assume. But truth is, while you may own a great pair of consumer headphones for pro audio, there are two special types of studio headphones intended for two very specific tasks. One closed back headphones to open back headphones stage for the pro studio for ninety nine point nine percent of us. Stage three will have been the final level of our journey because the truth is, it's tough to be successful in the pro audio business and most of us aren't looking to be professionals anyway. But since many of you are at least curious about it, I might as well give you a few examples of how pro studios differ from amateur ones. So he has the final list of equipment for stage four.
One digital converters, two master clocks, three analog hardware. And here's more about each one.
One, digital converters hidden within your audio interface and many other devices in your studio is a device known as a digital converter that has two simple jobs. Converting analog audio into digital HD and. Converting digital audio into analog d.A. The reason you may not have heard of it is in 99 percent of cases. Digital converters exist as a side feature within some other device. In pro studios with big budgets, it's common to find high end standalone digital converters costing several thousand dollars each, which have no other function than to deliver the absolute best digital conversion money can buy. Will it be the difference between a good mix and a bad one? Probably not. But for professionals, every little advantage counts to master clocks. Another little known device hidden within virtually every digital recording device is whenever you connect digital signals from two or more devices, the individual digital samples must align perfectly in sync. Otherwise, the resulting audio will be filled with annoying clicks and pops from the misaligned samples in most setups. The audio interface clock default, says the master, and the others as slaves, meaning one clock leads and the others follow. However, with more complex systems, it's much easier to use a standalone digital master clock to lead the entire system.
And while there's much debate about their impact on sound quality, some sources will tell you that a high end master clock makes a noticeable difference. Three analog hardware. Long before the days when mixing was done with software plugins, common tools like a Q and compression existed only as standalone hardware in Iraq. These days, many of those units cost several thousand dollars each and offer only one or two channels. Now you might wonder, so wouldn't I need dozens of those things just to mix a song? Well, the answer is yes, you would. Luckily for us, we now live in an age where the model digital versions of these tools make our jobs both cheaper and easier. Many of the world's top studios still rely mainly on these ancient tools to get the job done, because, according to too many of the best players in the business, analog gear still sounds better than any plugin. Many of us normal guys blow absurd amounts of cash on a single purchase that may but probably won't be the one missing ingredient. We've been searching for. Would I recommend it in most cases? Not really. But I promise I won't judge you if you buy one anyway.
