    Home Studio

    Been saving money up to start a small home studio and I've spent loads of it already! Wow. It really takes its toll on your wallet.

    So far, I've spent 600

    80 on new RAM for my MacBook (4GB)
    139 on a Focusrite Saffire 6
    245 on 2x KRK Rokit 5s
    122 on Logic Studio (Student discount baby! Awwww yeah!)



    And I'm thinking of getting the Komplete 7 package. Was looking at it all last night. Looks fuckin amazing for the price you pay.

    Also, when I have the money... I might be getting a dedicated Mac Pro. I can only dream as of yet though!

    Suppose my question is this: What gear have you got, what more do you intend to buy and how much have you spent?

    Re: Home Studio

    tbh I never expect to break even, not even close.

    FL 150
    Alesis M1 MkII 300
    PSP mixpack2 200
    Midi keyboard 200
    EMU 1212m interface used 100
    Mixer Yamaha MG12/4 used 90
    Emu E4X 300
    AKG K141 cans used 70
    =1400 , give or take, plus cables plus whatnot.

    +400 CDJ-800 used
    +250 Hercules RMX dj console

    But I've already made, let me calculate the numbers here, 20 from selling my music

    I'm also dreaming of a dedicated music machine and Komplete 7 but that's very far from reality right now.

    ---------- Post added at 16:14 ---------- Previous post was at 16:11 ----------

    Now that I think of it, I'm at a point now where I can make tunes without longing for anything else for the setup. Better get working then, at my regular 0.08 / track I would have to sell 17500 tunes to break even.

    Re: Home Studio

    I was thinking about getting Komplate also, looks like a very good deal.

    Just spent a fair bit of bread on an Access Virus TI synth. Ouch! But I'm glad I did.

    Re: Home Studio

    Haha... arent we all suckers!

    @Kama: Who said anything about breaking even?! Lolllllllllllz. To be fair, I get paid for writing music for film and theatre too so I do see a little bit of a return. My "business" (if you can call it that) is still in its baby stages! haha

    Re: Home Studio

    Davis speakers (not studio speakers but good quality. Do the job before i get some Krk or others)
    Harman/kardon amplifier
    Quad core 3ghz proc
    4g ddr3 ram
    E-mu 1820 soundcard
    Korg X50 synth/midi keyboard
    Dual LG w2361v for screens
    Akg K272HD Headphones
    XP 64
    Cubase 5
    Komplete 6
    + Fx vsts and some vst synths

    And of course a big desk to arrange all that in a great shape.

    For epic gear porn go to www.gearslutz.com.

    Don't forget that the more you spend time looking for stuff and working so you can afford them, the less you produce.
    A lot of audio geek on gearslutz admit that they have thousands $ worth of gear and never produce a full track.

    M-Audio Axiom 49 (2nd gen) - 259,- Euro's.
    Alesis M1Active 520 monitors - 239 Euro's.
    Reason 5, FL Studio 9 XXL - 550,- Euro's.
    Korg Kaoss Pad 3 - 320,- Euro's.

    Re: Home Studio

    Okay let's see:

    - Reloop Digital Jockey Interface edition + traktor LE
    - Traktor Pro
    - CDJ-350 x2 (maybe a third one in the near future)
    - Behringer DJX 750
    - 2 x 100 rms wat speakers (20 years old and my dad made 'em back then About 1m high & 0.5m Wide)
    - Laptop to spin with in Midi

    - FL studio 9 Producer's edition
    - A Desktop Quad core Put together by myself (Because i'm doing the "producing", still in the early stage of, and the laptop is from my mate from our dj team)

    Sounds pretty stupid, i've got pretty expensive gear though i can't make a decent song yet, Though i'm on the way! ;D
