What Do You Need for a Home Recording Studio


If you are a singer or a player of a solo instrument you often would like to hear yourself perform.  But very seldom do you get that chance. One of the best ways to hear yourself is to record yourself.  “But, it cost so much to set up with a studio and record for just an hour or so,” you say. You are correct.  So, what do you need for a home recording studio?

What do you need for a home recording studio
Your Home Studio

What if I could show you a means by which you could set up your own studio?  And set it up for the price of an hour in a recording studio. The first time I heard that I was sold.  Even with that good of a deal, it took me a couple of weeks to get the funds for it.

What do you need for a basic home recording studio?

The first thing you need is a computer.  It does not have to be a top of the line computer.  It helps if you have at least 100 gbt of ROM and at least 4 gbt of RAM.  If it has 2.0 ghrz processor that will help. Most laptops and desktops have at least that these days.

The Package

Once you know your computer is OK, then we look at the equipment.  You may be thinking we should look at software. We are going to do just that.  But our software is going to be in the package of things that I recommend.

The package that I recommend is a bundle which includes the interface, a condenser microphone, a set of stereo headphones, and the Studio One Artist software to make all this work together.


By clicking the Sound Pro button(see bottom of page), you will be taken to their site.  Then, in the products window, you will paste or type in the following: PS-AUDIOBOX-96-STUDIO

That will take you to the place where you will see the bundle that I have mentioned.  At this particular time, they are running a special.(Date of this post is 5/6/19).  Normally, it is a good deal at $299.00.  But they occasionally run it on special which it is now. They are selling for only $199.00 for the bundle.

(If you do purchase it through this site they will pay me a small percentage of your purchase.  But it does not affect your price. It is a great deal. Check it out.)

With that bundle, you will have what you need for a basic home studio setup.

You are in business, the recording business

Though you do not have the big speakers yet, you do have good quality headphones.  You have everything needed to make a recording and hear what it sounds like.

Studio One Artist makes recording a breeze in your home studio

No other entry-level recording and production software is this easy to learn and use, yet is capable of creating studio-quality output. Studio One Artist lets you work quickly and stay focused on your inspiration, offers unlimited tracks and plug-ins, and delivers features not normally found in entry-level DAWs. Access powerful editing tools without wading through menus. Load and save audio clips, MIDI files, and effects by drag-and-drop. Studio One makes it easy!

Capture every nuance with the M7 condenser microphone.

Get your mic collection off to a good start with the M7 large-diaphragm condenser microphone. Condenser mics are the overwhelming choice of recording studio professionals, enabling you to capture musical details, harmonics, and subtle nuances that would get lost with dynamic mics. Large-diaphragm condenser microphones, like the M7, tend to “warm up” a sound, making them the go-to microphone for recording vocals and a wide range of instruments.

Hear every detail with HD7 professional headphones.

PreSonus’ high-definition HD7 headphones take advantage of a patented, semi-open sound chamber to deliver exceptionally deep low frequencies with a balanced and yet powerful bass punch. Accurate midrange and extended treble response let you pick out the fine details of a mix or track. The lightweight, ergonomic design adjusts to any head size, offering a comfortable listening experience during long recording sessions.

Includes Studio Magic Plug-in Suite.

This suite of plugins adds a wealth of fresh virtual instruments and effects to Studio One. Cherry-picked from the first names in virtual instruments and effects, each plug-in brings a different flavor of practical magic to your songs. These plugins aren’t gimmicky one-trick ponies – these are real-deal workhorses that you’ll rely on for countless mixes.

Added advantage

Since you will be using Studio One equipment and software you will be able to easily upgrade at any time in the future.  All the equipment and software is compatible with all Presonus equipment and other software.

As you grow in your recording knowledge you can grow in the recording equipment also.  

With this equipment and your computer, you have everything you need to make a CD of your music.  This package has everything necessary to begin your growth toward being a recording artist.
