Must Haves for Wanna-Be Home Based Musicians! (The Starter List)

No lie, 6 months after the day I picked up my first guitar and learned to ply Bob Marley – 3 Little Birds I, too, started to wander :” Now that I can play music, what do I need to record music at home?”.

One afternoon after 2 weeks of thorough researches I made a list of items that just made sense I’d get myself to set a good starter home studio. The items listed were 1. a Mac Book Pro, 2. Logic Pro X, 3. a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, 4. an Audio-Technica AT2020 mic, 5. an Akai MPK MIDI controller, and a pair of good headphones.

Personally, I’ve love the idea of having my own home studio since I got first introduced to the idea by some random guy online now a friend. But it took me a while to realize that I didn’t need all the gears that guy had.

Anyways after making millions with my music using the sync licensing business model I feel pretty confident in righteously advising young wanna-be home-based musicians like yourself the ultimate starter list.
