Audio Samples / Free Samples Vs. Paid
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:41:10 AM »
Now, personally I typically make the samples I use myself, however to those of you are solely relying on outside sources of Samples, and sample packs is there REALLY a significant difference between a GOOD free sample or pack and a GOOD paid sample or pack?

Guitar / Recording
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:37:51 AM »
Mostly out of curiosity, but also to maybe try out some new things I was wondering. Do you guys use the same guitar and set up for recording that you do live or is completely different? For me I use a Dean Vendetta 4.0 w/floyd rose for recording and for about half of any live set I do, although I use multiple guitars live so I can swap them for different tuning. I have access to all of my guitars when recording but for me, that is the only one I'd ever consider actually recording with. And to anybody who does jump around from guitar to guitar for recording how do you feel it effects your process and sound?

Speakers / Budgeting; Home Studio Speakers
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:29:41 AM »
What could be more important to a home studio other than a way to actually listen to what you are working on? I know that I've seen some post around about people asking about what speakers they should get, or stay away from. So for the home studio these are my picks, with links and prices.


Entry Level: KRK RP5G3 ($299 Average/pair)

Microphones / Budgeting; Home Studio Mics
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:22:46 AM »
I recently have gotten my own home studio set-up, and while looking to set up as a hobbyist I wanted quality, but the price tags on most high-end audio/recording equipment can be pretty scary. But with some research I was able to find some budget, quality equiptment and here I'd just like to share what I personally decided to go with for both condenser, and dynamic.

Condenser: Audio Technica AT2020 ($149 average)

Dynamic: (You guessed it) Shure SM58 ($99 average)

Digital Music Production and DAWs / Budgeting; Reaper
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:16:33 AM »
For those of you putting together a home studio on a tight budget but are still looking for effective and quality methods, and results I could (and do) recommend Cockos Reaper. The software is exactly the same no matter which license is purchased, so home-recording musicians are given the same exact capabilities of commercial enterprises. It's priced at $60.00 for Home-studios and I've even seen it discounted in the past so if you keep an eye out, you would be able to get it cheaper. All of this on top of it's easy to use, easy to pick up UI and set up makes this a great choice for those of you looking to set up a home studio and don't want to spend an arm and a leg.

Digital Music Production and DAWs / FL Studio VS. Pro Tools
« on: May 05, 2015, 04:29:09 PM »
What do you guys think? I'm looking into setting up a home studio and I'm torn between these two DAWs to start with I've been doing a lot of research but I'm still unsure of where to go if any of you with direct experience with the two programs could throw me together a short Pros/cons list that would be a great help to me!

Microphones / Rode NT1A
« on: May 05, 2015, 04:23:18 PM »
There seems to be a pretty good deal going on right for the Rode NT1A which I have been looking into getting for a while now, I found it here: http://www.samash.com/microphone-deals/rode-nt1a-1-studio-condenser-microphones-rnt1ampxx

Do you guys think that is a good deal? Should I snatch it up?
