So, I have been doing the research this week and I feel like I have come up with a pretty solid list of basic necessities for the initial home studio purchase. The biggest purchase is going to be the computer, obviously. But, I went as inexpensive as I could without going so small that it would cause operator errors during the recording process itself. With the computer, interface, recording software, and a few extras like a drum sampler pack and guitar pedal pack… I am looking at walking away ready to record at around $2,200.
But, that isn’t all.
Since the focus of this hobby is going to be to record more of a deathcore style of music, I will also be looking into getting a 7 string guitar and a nice simplistic electric bass.
That will likely leave the entire purchase at somewhere around $3,000 to $3,500.
Between now and January I will be doing more research on what would work best for the genre while slowly building up the study one small purchase at a time rather than buying it all at once.
