My Studio

I’ve been wanting to showcase the equipment I use in hopes of getting feedback from others about what they use in their own home studios.  Most of the equipment herein was recommended to me by a friend.

 Audio-Technica 4033CL Cardioid Condensor Mic


Behringer Eurorack UB802 Mixer

dbx 286A Mic Preamp/Processor

 
USB Audio Interface Behringer UCA202 
I also use a pop filter and have acoustic foam on my walls in the areas my voice will more commonly bounce off of.  I run all of this through my computer, an HP Pavilion p6510y PC with AMD Athlon II 630 Quad-Core Processor and use the latest version of Audacity to record and edit my work.  My studio monitors are not really monitors but an old RCA Digital Audio System RS3531 that has a dual cassette tape deck.  Who uses cassette tapes anymore?  Raise your hand!  My studio is located in my basement in a room that doesn’t have any windows.  I’ve adjust my mic processor to eliminate any outside sounds from the appliances in my house.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions I’d love to hear them.  I hope this satisfies your curiosity.  🙂

  1. Good website and incredibly enlightening. Thanks for taking the time to write it and post it!

  2. Hi Steve, Do you find Audacity does the job required? I couldn’t find a noise gater, for instance and the EQ somewhat limited.
    My mic is a few years older but the same brand, – no complaints there from any clients!

    • I haven’t had any problems with Audacity. I’m still somewhat limited in my usage and knowledge of it, but I haven’t received any complaints about how it sounds. Plus I use my mixer board and pre-amp before it even goes into Audacity so that could be helpful too. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and good luck!
