Studio set-up?


Recommended Posts

Been looking up how to set-up a home studio. Please give opinions on what studio monitors to get, what computer to use and other equipment needed to set-up up a mid-to-high end studio for EDM production. Helpful tips like getting monitor isolation pads are welcome, I basically only know about studio monitors lol.

Well, I think I got a pretty descent studio, in the econmy class....

For monitors I use 2 KRK-Rokit 6, and for soundcard, I use Focusrite scarlett, before that I used my Numark Ns6 DJ controller, it works perfect as an external soundcard.

My pc is more gamingstation, than a workstation, but it works very good, it takes very many channels with VST's and stuff, before I got cpu overload.

PC specs:

Processor Intel® Core i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz

Number of Cores 6

Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960

Manufacturer NVIDIA

Chipset GeForce GTX 960

Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit

Display Maximum Resolution 1920 x 1080



Drive 1 (HDD)

Drive 2 (HDD)

Drive 3 (SSD)

Free 138.1 GB

Drive 4

And for Midi equipments, I got a, Ableton Push, Midi Fighter 3d, Akai Max25 midikeyboard, and a M-audio 49 midikeyboard.

For sound isolationg and stuff, I would just buy some rockwool, but the most important thing, in my experience is the room sice, depending on the room, and what kind of fuckit i dont know the word, but the thing you use to make those walls.... (My english is so perfect)

I bought all of this equipment this year, and it costed me like 2400$

Damn, that's hell good for price. Does it really matter if you get the best of each product or does the average get the job done just as well? Coz I was thinking of getting Yamaha HS8's for studio monitors and they're a bit more pricey but if it doesn't matter too much I may as well not waste money which could be spent on more equipment.

It's ofcourse better, with the best equipment, but honestly, IMO it's not a big deal, with todays computer tech.

Just look at rusko's setup

not so fancy.....

But he still get's the job done!

But the most important thing, imo is some good ass monitors, you need to be hearing, them lows and mid/high properly, if I had the money, I would be my some Adam A7X monitors, perfect for mixing etc.

But my KRK's work fine to !
