The Makeshift Musician’s Comprehensive Guide to Building Your Own Studio

Posted by makeshiftmusician on June 30, 2009

So you have a great band or you’re a composer and you really want to make a sweet album yourself, but you don’t know where to start? How does someone even record music? How does one go about putting together a studio? Don’t you need to go to school for that kind of thing?

Fear not, gentle reader. Like the majestic albatross, I swoop down from the heavens and bestow upon you the greatest tool you’ll ever receive, The Makeshift Musician’s Comprehensive Guide to Building Your Own Studio.

My article Make Your Own Recording Studio is the most popular piece on this site. I’ve always felt like it was a bit short and lacking, so I really wanted to make something, well, more comprehensive and valuable. I hope this guide can help you make the whole process of home recording a little less daunting and mysterious and more fun.

Remember that there are roughly 5 million different ways to build a studio, and what I’m telling you covers just one way. The studio I’ve built for myself is a pretty good general purpose setup that is also highly portable and easily changeable, and that’s about what you’ll see in this guide.
