Vol. 3 in the "Home Studio Series" focuses on the essential recording gear to get a home studio off the ground
June 18, 2012, (Pennsauken, NJ) — Disc Makers has released the newest edition of their "Home Studio Series" in which they tackle the topic of building with a budget in mind. The $999 Home Studio Guide, The essential gear to get your studio off the ground is the third in a series of free, downloadable guides, set to include seven titles spanning topics such as building a professional home recording studio, choosing the right microphones, and making great mixes at home.
The $999 Home Studio Guide looks at the basics in the recording chain, while also offering insights into the function and price ranges of essential recording gear for your home studio, including cables, preamps, studio monitors, headphones, headphone amps, mic stands, and more.
"The first installments in this series focused on the process of constructing and controlling the acoustics in a home recording studio," says Andre Calilhanna, the guide's author. "Now we're looking at some of the studio basics and touching on the differences in the recording chain, things a professional engineer knows by trade but that someone new to recording might not. There are also necessary items the new studio owner might overlook, so this guide will help keep them focused on the things they may not be considering when outfitting their studio."
Disc Makers, the nation's leading independent disc manufacturer, maintains Echoes, a DIY music blog, and has published over a dozen guides aimed at helping musicians sustain their own careers. This series of guides is their first to tackle the topic of home recording.
Volumes I & II in the series, Building a Professional Home Studio: A no-skimping guide to turning your living room into an A-Room and Creating a Home Project Studio, How to get optimal results from your space and budget are available for free download. Coming titles in the Home Studio Series will include The Home Studio Microphone Guide, Using Compressors, Delays, and Reverb, and Getting Great Tones in Your Home Studio.
"Each new volume will touch on a different topic related to home recording," explains Calilhanna. "By the end, we'll have a rich, well-rounded resource filled with nuggets of wisdom from folks who have plenty of recording experience and lots to share on the subject."
