While technological advancements have made the construction of a home studio that much more achievable, and while you don't need massive amounts of space and a mixing board a mile long, there are a few essentials you must have in place in order for your studio to function well.
In this piece, MusicThinkTank contributor Lizzie Weakly shares five must-haves for those looking to set up a solid recording studio in their home.
"You may lay down your tracks on a laptop, but your lap is not the best place to hold it. Be sure your studio has a sturdy desk with provisions for handling lots of cables, notes, and probably a sandwich or two. Be sure you take care of the computer’s power needs, not just by having current close by but also by having surge protection and a battery backup to keep spikes, brownouts, and failures from ruining your work."
