DIY The Complete $300 Home Studio - SmartRapper.com

Because your budget is now over $100 we can move from a USB microphone to a First let's talk about microphones Microphone Options For Around $100 Audio‑Technica AT2020 $99 http://amzn.to/2DZfmRB The AT2020 gives us a cardioid polar pattern, which makes it an excellent choice for vocal usage because it minimizes rear and side sound pick up, enabling the user to focus on the desired sound resource. MXL 990 $110 http://amzn.to/2BIwR35 AKG P220 $150 If you want to do a little step up for just a bit more quality this is a great choice without breaking the bank http://amzn.to/2E6hSWh Now let's talk about pre amps. A Preamp is what amplifies the signal of a microphone and it is plugged BEFORE the microphone hence the name PRE AMP My favorite thing to recommend for up and coming people on a budget is the $100 Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools http://amzn.to/2DOKW0T It's only $100, has a great quality sound and comes with Pro Tools which would cost you $100 anyways. Now you have only spent around $200 Now you need a mic stand which is $20 http://amzn.to/2Eu9fT8 A Pop filter which is only $7 http://amzn.to/2DSCcen Acoustic Treatment And acoustic treatment so your recording environment is set up right and the sound that goes into the microphone has less reverb and is cleaner. You should buy 3 of these packs and they Are $18 each and you get to choose your color purple, orange, green, grey http://amzn.to/2EqvvNv Then you just need some command strips to safely put them on your wall with no damage You'll need 2 of these and they are $6 each http://amzn.to/2DPsPIm I have a video showing you how to put them up which I'll put below. It's how I put up all of the stuff in this room as you can see. And the same acoustic treatment I am recommending is what I have up on the wall here. The list of everything I mentioned in this video is below for you along with links directly to the items But here is a round up for you Audio‑Technica AT2020 $99 or MXL 990 $110 $100 Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools mic stand which is $20 A Pop filter which is only $7 3 Acoustic Treatment sets $18 3 Sets of command strips $6 each This is just around $300 Now This prices do not include you having your computer but to be honest even super cheap $300 laptops or desktop computers have more than enough computing power to run pro tools and allow you to record yourself from home no problem. It also doesn't include studio monitors which are the speakers to mix your own music. But you don't need that stuff yet. At this level you can do basic mixes through decent head phones or you can pay someone who knows what they are doing to mix and master your songs for cheap. Right now you are still focusing on growing your sound. **My Full 6 Hour Songwriting Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteSongs **My Full 3 Hour Lyric Writing Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteLyrics **My Full 3 Hour Rap Flow Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/RapFlow **200+ Hip Hop Blog E-mails To Get Your Music Heard** http://www.SmartRapper.com/HipHopBlogs **How To Find Your Rap Voice Trilogy Set** http://www.SmartRapper.com/RapVoice **Music Record Label A and R Contacts List FREE:** http://www.SmartRapper.com/ARsignup 200,000+ Followers On My Instagram http://www.Instagram.com/Rob_Level **Basic Home Studio Gear Set Up For Under 250:** Focusrite Scarlett Solo that also comes with Pro Tools FREE http://amzn.to/2wT48ub Audio Technia AT2020 refurbished microphone $70-100 http://amzn.to/2f1rWVS MK-10 Microphone Boom for $20 http://amzn.to/2wWgHnI A pop filter too http://amzn.to/2wVZWsJ The cables for the mic to to the preamp XLR Cable 6 FT - 2 pack http://amzn.to/2wWhjd8 My Main Music Channel http://www.YouTube.com/NovieNovak **Theme Song From Intro In Video - Rob Level - Way Up:** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YViin66f0bs

3 Things You MUST Do BEFORE Recording (INSTANTLY Sound Better)

The 3 Best Rapper Tips To Warm Up On The Mic stick around for number 3 because it's a tip you probably never thought of that will change everything for your recording and confidence game. Scream really loud to break the silence. Just scream "YEAAAAAAAAA BUDDY!!!!" or something else like that. No I'm not kidding and here is why. After you yell there won't be anything more embarrassing you can possibly do. For this reason you will rap with more confidence and less anxiety. Because you have already done something super embarrassing what could be more embarrassing? 2) no joke here. 20 Jumping jacks and 20 push ups. Getting your blood flowing, your body warmed up and your endorphins rushing will put you in a happier state and from there you can performwith more confidence in a happier state. TRY IT! No one is probably watching you anyways, who cares! 3) The secret sauce!!! Record yourself and then pre set your plug ins where they sound the best. Add effects, auto tune and everything else. Why do this? You ever record and HATE how it sounds? All because it wasn't mixed yet? Well that's what this trick does for you. Everytime you record something, it already sounds amazing. It's basically PRE MIXED. So your confidence through the entire recording of the song will be 10 times higher. Let me give you an example here. Here is a song with the vocal with no effects on it SHOW SOUND Here is a song take with the vocal with the effects on it This is a game changer! Start doing this! You know what time it is Smart Rapper word of the day! To go back over these 1 more time 1) Scream 2) Push ups 3) Pre mix the track BAM You just gained 10 Smart Rapper points and you're officially smarter **My Full 6 Hour Songwriting Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteSongs **My Full 3 Hour Lyric Writing Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteLyrics **My Full 3 Hour Rap Flow Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/RapFlow **200+ Hip Hop Blog E-mails To Get Your Music Heard** http://www.SmartRapper.com/HipHopBlogs **How To Find Your Rap Voice Trilogy Set** http://www.SmartRapper.com/RapVoice **Music Record Label A and R Contacts List FREE:** http://www.SmartRapper.com/ARsignup 200,000+ Followers On My Instagram http://www.Instagram.com/Rob_Level **Basic Home Studio Gear Set Up For Under 250:** Focusrite Scarlett Solo that also comes with Pro Tools FREE http://amzn.to/2wT48ub Audio Technia AT2020 refurbished microphone $70-100 http://amzn.to/2f1rWVS MK-10 Microphone Boom for $20 http://amzn.to/2wWgHnI A pop filter too http://amzn.to/2wVZWsJ The cables for the mic to to the preamp XLR Cable 6 FT - 2 pack http://amzn.to/2wWhjd8 My Main Music Channel http://www.YouTube.com/NovieNovak **Theme Song From Intro In Video - Rob Level - Way Up:** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YViin66f0bs

The Cheapest Possible Full Home Studio Setup Options

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A Computer and at the bare minimum I want you to have a computer that you can get music recorded on fast and efficiently. I also want you to have a computer that will last you All of these computers I am recommending have at least a intel i5 processor which is what I am going to recommend as the bare minimmum so that you have an efficient and quick recording process everytime. I'm going to show you a screen cast of the items but please note that prices may go up or even down since prices fluctuate on Amazon on a regular basis. I'm keeping the prices of the computer around $200 because at $100 they are going to be a bit too shitty to deal with. $200 is a sweet spot.

How Much Does A HIT SONG Make In 2018? (You'd Never Guess)

The Link That Gets You 7% Off Your First Year + Supports Smart Rapper If You Use It http://DistroKid.com/SmartRapper How much does a hit song make in 2018? (30 Million?) Streams on streaming platforms If you're on a top spotify playlist your song is getting around 3,000,000 streams just from being in that playlist PER WEEK And that's just from being on the playlist. If you're poppin with a HIT you get more like around 5,000,000 a week PER SONG that you have on a top playlist like Rap Caviar On spotify you get .00397 PER STREAM so that times 1 million makes it around $3,970.00 And times that by 5 because you have 5 million streams PER WEEK on a top playlist and on Spotify ALONE you are making $19,850 PER WEEK on streams. Per month that your song is hot you are now at $79,400 so if it's hot 6 months you are at around $500,000 Just from Spotify Streams. People Purchasing other songs and full projects from you since they suddenly became a fan. You will sell probably at LEAST 50,000 units at $10 each and Apple or anywhere else is taking their 30% cut so $350,000 is what you make from that. Video monetizing - if it gets 100,000,000 views and you get $2000 per million views, so $200,000 in just streams Movie placements and TV Placements You'll get in at least 2 or 3 big movies at around $30,000 per placement so let's just say $100,000 Then the song allows you to actually tour because people know your name and would buy a ticket to your show. And you're getting 50 to 100 thousand a show doing tours with around 50 shows. Let's just say you are getting 50,000 a show TIMES 50 shows that's 2.5 MILLION in show money. Pay everyone out and expenses for the tour and you still kept around 1 Million. Sell merchandise At your shows you are selling merch and that makes you around $10,000 PER SHOW so theres another half a million 4,450,000 - 1557500 = $2,892,500 after taxes And here i didn't mention OTHER streaming platforms or the international reach that music companies have to monetize songs playing damn near anywhere. Really this number comes out to closer to 10 million and if you're a pop star it's around 20 million if you spend a month on the billboard number 1. Think about how a song like Blurred lines made over $30,000,000 that is INSANE.

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.
