If you’re looking to start creating, recording and releasing your own music from home, you’re in luck as it’s never been easier and the quality of equipment that’s available today really is quite amazing.
Today we’ll show you how to get a home recording rig together from things we sell in our shop, Guitarbitz, without spending any more than £300!
First things first you’ll need an audio interface, this is crucial because it’s essentially bridging the gap between your instrument and your computer.
It converts the audio signals going into it into a format that your computer and software (Logic, Pro Tools etc) will recognise. Without an audio interface you wouldn’t be able to get your signal into the computer!
We sell audio interfaces that allow you to actually plug a guitar into your iPad/iPhone as well as your computer!
So how much will that cost?
The Audiobox iOne Audio Interface is a bargain at just £64 at Guitarbitz!
Next up you’ll need a pair of studio headphones, these aren’t crucial but to be able to hear what you’re playing or singing in detail, as well as mix in detail is really important!
For writing and recording music you’ll want to stay away from your typical casual listening headphones like Beats etc - these headphones boost certain frequencies and ideally you want headphones that have a flat frequency response.
A pair of the brilliant Samson SR950 Closed back studio headphones are £49.99.
If you’re in need of an electric guitar, one the best guitars for the price is the Squire Bullet Mustang, for just £150 this guitar feels great, it’s built really well and sounds amazing!
Lastly, and the most overlooked and forgotten aspect! A cable for your guitar!
You can grab a great quality 10m Fender guitar cable for £14.99. These cables are super reliable and will last you for many years!
That's really all you need, once you have these 4 things you’ve got all the tools you need to start recording music from home!
