In the past the idea of having a high quality studio within your home was madness. Luckily, times have changed, and now this is possible, thanks to the new affordable instruments that are being developed as we speak. You can have a lot of fun making music, but getting a good recording and arrangement of your song requires some work and knowledge. Creating a home studio can be a wallet-draining hobby. But it can also be a streamlined affair if you know exactly what you want to get done. All you really need is MIDI controllers of some sort (to play your keys and your beats) and a decent pair of headphones or speakers. If you want to record live sounds such as vocals or guitar, you’ll also need an audio interface and a microphone to get those sounds into the computer. MIDI controllers or keyboards come in a variety of shapes, sizes and prices these days. If you’re a pro keyboard or piano player you may want to invest in something nice but for most of us a cheap, 25-key keyboard works perfectly well for almost everything. Some controllers also come with pads, sliders, or knobs on them. This can be handy when you want to use the controller to turn the virtual knobs in your software.
