Home Music Studio Equipment - Essentials for Beginners Feel free to jump to a desired section using the time links below: COMPUTER: 1:34 DAW: 2:05 INTERFACE: 4:56 MICROPHONES: 6:00 MIC ACCESSORIES: 10:35 MIDI KEYBOARD: 11:20 MONITORS & HEADPHONES: 11:48 Looking back on the years I spent buying and trying different pieces of recording equipment, I can easily identify the pieces that were integral in helping me record better sounding music at home. I literally get messages every week from aspiring musicians/producers/songwriters looking to start creating better music at home. This is a "brief" overview of the equipment essentials I think every home studio needs. Within each category, I will breakdown some of my favorite specific pieces and also touch on the equipment that I use. All equipment links are listed below.

This time around, I'll take a suggestion from YOU the viewers and build an audio production PC! We'll go through some general guidelines, component selection, a build timelapse, setting up the BIOS for minimum fan noise, and testing it out on Windows 10, Reaper, and a Roland Rubix 22. Here is a list of the specific parts that I used in this build (and a HUGE thank you to Andy at Microcenter Denver for all of the help in picking out these parts and staying within budget): CPU: http://www.microcenter.com/product/483772/core-i3-8100-coffee-lake-36-ghz-lga-1151-boxed-processor Motherboard: http://www.microcenter.com/product/508768/b360m-pro-vdh-lga-1151-matx-intel-motherboard RAM: http://www.microcenter.com/product/446292/ballistix-sport-lt-8gb-ddr4-2400-pc4-19200-cl16-quad-channel-desktop-memory-module Power Supply: http://www.microcenter.com/product/479133/masterwatt-lite-500-watt-80-plus-atx-power-supply SSD: http://www.microcenter.com/product/485877/120gb-3d-tlc-nand-sata-iii-6gb-s-25-internal-solid-state-drive HDD: http://www.microcenter.com/product/488570/p300-1tb-7200rpm-sata-iii-6gb-s-35-oem-internal-hard-drive CPU Cooler: http://www.microcenter.com/product/468883/hyper-212-led-cpu-cooler Intake fans: http://www.microcenter.com/product/465597/ml140-magnetic-levitation-140mm-case-fan---twin-pack Exhaust fan: http://www.microcenter.com/product/423760/air-af120-quiet-edition-white-led-sleeve-bearing-120mm-case-fan CPU cooler fan: http://www.microcenter.com/product/405571/nf-f12-pwm-sso-bearing-120mm-case-fan Case: http://www.microcenter.com/product/448915/carbide-series-spec-02-redshift-special-edition-atx-mid-tower-computer-case---black PWM fan splitter: http://www.microcenter.com/product/438524/pwm-fan-splitter Stay tuned for the giveaway, since this computer could be YOURS!
In just 15 minutes, music producer and songwriter Oak Felder demonstrated how a hit song gets from nothing more than an idea to a multi-layered sound experience. Onstage from Recode's Code Media conference, Felder recreated the technical process of how he produced the hit Demi Lovato single “Sorry Not Sorry.” Starting from a blank canvas in the music production app Logic Pro X, he said his first job was to create a “vibe” before the songwriting process could begin. “The people in the room are looking at you for the initial spark of inspiration,” he said. “You are the catalyst, you are starting everything up.” You can watch the full presentation from Recode’s Code Media stage.

With the Internet (and despite all it’s goodness) comes a host of bad advice from sometimes well meaning people. There are these myths that float around relating to home recording and making music in the home studio. And while there are many home studio myths out on the interwebs, there are four in particular that I just can’t stand. My goal here every week is to actually help you get results in your home studio, so sometimes in order to that I need to correct bad advice and flawed thinking. Let’s dive in! After watching, leave a comment below and let me know which of the 4 myths you’ve struggled with the most!
Comment @Rob_Level on http://www.Instagram.com/Burrcardi her last Instagram picture! This will be fun My Networking Course With $80 Off Discount For Smart Rapper Gang http://www.SmartRapper.com/NetworkingCourse People tend to get all their new music from Playlists now as opposed to blogs. While blogs still have their role in molding people's opinions and helping people gain fans, they are slowly losing their daily visitors to people who are discovering music on Spotify Playlists and Sound Cloud playlists. The good news about this shift is that if people stop focusing on getting posted on Hip Hop blogs, this opens up the doors for you to have a higher chance of getting a post on that blog. I highly recommend you try to get on both the blogs and the playlists but to be 100% honest, the playlists are the go to place now. Next thing I recommend is you start finding and creating relationships with the people who run these Spotify playlists. Just like a blog can do, if these people put you into their Playlist for even a few days you can gain thousands of fans. This is the kind of person you REALLY need to create a relationship with now somehow because if she likes you AND your music and she puts you on an official Sptoify playlist, you can get heard by 10s of thousands of people INSTANTLY. That is literally a whole fan base instantly created for you over night. Go to her page and follow her or at the last post on her posts and tell her @Rob_Level sent you. She will think it's funny. Start making better music and start making a strategy around getting posted on these Playlists.

You don't need CRAZY SUPER COMPUTER in order to record yourself at home.
Quite the opposite
You really just need a basic computer that allows you to work nice and smooth with audio and almost any basic computer nowadays will allow you to do that.
It's not 1999 anymore. We are even at a point now where a cell phones processor can handle and maintain an audio software and recording into it. It's crazy.
