What do I Need to Start My Own Studio?

Starting a studio can be easy

You need to figure what genre you belong in
  1. Street rappers tend to rap about what goes on in the hood
  2. glam rappers are more what they got and what you don't
  3. the I don't care artist that might not be good but will still make music
  4. R&B type 
  5. Hip-Hop and R&B
  6. Classic R&B

What you will need

All of this can range from $150 to over $350 or less if you find deals or have friends.

  1. a stand: boom or regular
  2. studio headphones
  3. a pop filter 
  4. shock mount
  5. a sound proof room
  6. lyrics
  7. notepad
  8. someone that can help
 And you need computer with a program or software that you can record and edit on. Most people use desktops to record and mix but you can also use a laptop.
Organization is a must...you can't have a studio that's wrecked or messy, it just makes you look unprofessional and unorganized.

If you want quality sound without paying a lot go on Ebay or somewhere to find deals, or just ask around.

Good sites to go on to get instrumentals is datpiff.com and if your looking for equipment it's easy online @Ebay.com or Amazon.com
