home_recording_studio in UK

Being an upcoming artist is difficult, specially if you are on a tight budget. I will provide a list with the most important equipment that you need to have in your home recording studio, and I will provide the best UK online deals. I recommend an online store because it contains all the stuff in one place, and most of them have really cheap or free shipping.

Home recording studio equipment

  • microphone
  • audio interface or soundcard+preamp
  • laptop or pc
  • recording and mixing software
  • accessories: mic stand, pop filter, cables, closed headphones
  • acoustic foam
  • optional: mixer

These are the basics for a home recording studio. Considering the UK online store deals and a budget around £300.

A nice microphone for a home recording studio

Rode NT1a is the perfect setup for an UK Home Studio. Better than that, this condenser mic can be used on a semi-pro recording studio. The best thing about this package is that NT1a comes with a studio pop shield and shock mount. In the package you’ll find a premium cable, dust cover, an instructional DVD with recording tips, and 10 years warranty. Click the link for more info and prices

The best audio interface under £80

You can’t go wrong with this audio interface. It’s perfect for your UK home studio.

Fast Track 2 USB Audio Interface with dual input and mic preamp + Pro Tools Software is the perfect audio interface for Rode NT1a mic.It comes with nice preamps and Phantom Power (remember that any condenser mic requires 48V phantom power). See best prices and a proper setup on studio setups blog.

You’re almost done. The audio interface and condenser mic are really important in your UK home studio. Most of accessories are already included (cable, pop filter, recording software). You need to get a mic stand, a pair of closed headphones and improvise some sort of acoustic foam (you can use egg crates).

Good Luck!
