This circle is a forum to discuss anything and everything related to home recording studios, mix or mastering rooms and recording technique.
There's a few 'sticky' topics which cover the broad strokes and should help anyone new to this with the basics.
Over the last decade, the price of setting up a small studio has drastically fallen. With hardware prices tumbling, vast competition between brands, and overseas manufacturing (for good and bad) a decent
studio is no longer a megabuck affair. A functional bare-bones project studio can be put together for as little as a few thousand dollars and be able to output tracks of reasonable quality. If you have $6K - $8K burning a hole in your pocket you could setup something quite nice. A number of recent popular recordings have been done in studios just like this.
As with most things, there's the situation of diminishing returns. My goal is to help create a forum where we can share info so you can do more with less, find your personal price/performance sweet spot, utilize some great techniques and create your sound.
