I've been in the studio but all I had to do was play and listen to the engineer and producer tell me what to do. Now I'd like to start building a small recording studio at home. At home I've used cool edit pro in the past with a simple USB recording mic. My objection is to supply electric guitar tracks to songs that are sent to me by recording with a mic on my amp. And do a little bit of record with my vocals and acoustic. This weekend I'll be going to pickup the following to get started. 1. Solid state logic SSL2+ 2.Audio Technica ATH-M50X headphones 3. e609 to mic my amp. Eventually may also pickup an SM57 4. Buy Reaper In the near future I'll pick up the following 1. Either a Rode NT1 or AT4040 for vocals and acoustic 2. set of studio monitors So I am starting from scratch on this learning curve. Any recommendations with good beginner primers considering the gear list I've provided?
