DIY The Complete $300 Home Studio - SmartRapper.com

Because your budget is now over $100 we can move from a USB microphone to a First let's talk about microphones Microphone Options For Around $100 Audio‑Technica AT2020 $99 http://amzn.to/2DZfmRB The AT2020 gives us a cardioid polar pattern, which makes it an excellent choice for vocal usage because it minimizes rear and side sound pick up, enabling the user to focus on the desired sound resource. MXL 990 $110 http://amzn.to/2BIwR35 AKG P220 $150 If you want to do a little step up for just a bit more quality this is a great choice without breaking the bank http://amzn.to/2E6hSWh Now let's talk about pre amps. A Preamp is what amplifies the signal of a microphone and it is plugged BEFORE the microphone hence the name PRE AMP My favorite thing to recommend for up and coming people on a budget is the $100 Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools http://amzn.to/2DOKW0T It's only $100, has a great quality sound and comes with Pro Tools which would cost you $100 anyways. Now you have only spent around $200 Now you need a mic stand which is $20 http://amzn.to/2Eu9fT8 A Pop filter which is only $7 http://amzn.to/2DSCcen Acoustic Treatment And acoustic treatment so your recording environment is set up right and the sound that goes into the microphone has less reverb and is cleaner. You should buy 3 of these packs and they Are $18 each and you get to choose your color purple, orange, green, grey http://amzn.to/2EqvvNv Then you just need some command strips to safely put them on your wall with no damage You'll need 2 of these and they are $6 each http://amzn.to/2DPsPIm I have a video showing you how to put them up which I'll put below. It's how I put up all of the stuff in this room as you can see. And the same acoustic treatment I am recommending is what I have up on the wall here. The list of everything I mentioned in this video is below for you along with links directly to the items But here is a round up for you Audio‑Technica AT2020 $99 or MXL 990 $110 $100 Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools mic stand which is $20 A Pop filter which is only $7 3 Acoustic Treatment sets $18 3 Sets of command strips $6 each This is just around $300 Now This prices do not include you having your computer but to be honest even super cheap $300 laptops or desktop computers have more than enough computing power to run pro tools and allow you to record yourself from home no problem. It also doesn't include studio monitors which are the speakers to mix your own music. But you don't need that stuff yet. At this level you can do basic mixes through decent head phones or you can pay someone who knows what they are doing to mix and master your songs for cheap. Right now you are still focusing on growing your sound. **My Full 6 Hour Songwriting Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteSongs **My Full 3 Hour Lyric Writing Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteLyrics **My Full 3 Hour Rap Flow Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/RapFlow **200+ Hip Hop Blog E-mails To Get Your Music Heard** http://www.SmartRapper.com/HipHopBlogs **How To Find Your Rap Voice Trilogy Set** http://www.SmartRapper.com/RapVoice **Music Record Label A and R Contacts List FREE:** http://www.SmartRapper.com/ARsignup 200,000+ Followers On My Instagram http://www.Instagram.com/Rob_Level **Basic Home Studio Gear Set Up For Under 250:** Focusrite Scarlett Solo that also comes with Pro Tools FREE http://amzn.to/2wT48ub Audio Technia AT2020 refurbished microphone $70-100 http://amzn.to/2f1rWVS MK-10 Microphone Boom for $20 http://amzn.to/2wWgHnI A pop filter too http://amzn.to/2wVZWsJ The cables for the mic to to the preamp XLR Cable 6 FT - 2 pack http://amzn.to/2wWhjd8 My Main Music Channel http://www.YouTube.com/NovieNovak **Theme Song From Intro In Video - Rob Level - Way Up:** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YViin66f0bs

What Is The Best Recording Software For Rappers? (Pro Tools, Logic, Fruity Loops?)

FULL SONG FROM INTRO AND OUTRO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YViin66f0bs It really doesn't matter which software you use... It's all preference. I used to think that having pro tools would instantly make me better somehow... really... it didn't matter at all. You are recording yourself and that is what matters. What software are you most comfortable using? That is what I am going to tell you to use. Having pro tools won't make it sound any better. Think about it. Whatever you are using to record and put that sound into the computer is still going to sound like it does going into any software. It's really that simple. Dont hold yourself back by thinking that you need a better software. And if you truly believe you do... then go buy cheap pro tools for $99 Now.. where it will matter is when it comes down to being able to transfer a session to someone else to get it mixed. If you're using a low end software and oyu want to send it off to a bigger engineer to get it mixed than you have to make sure that they use that software. You can't save a session in Cubase and expect to send it to an engineer who isn't familiar with Cubase. On the other end though you can still send your session to them but you will have to track out each and every part of the song and then send it to them where they will have to re align it in their software. But that's just super annoying lol I have OLD songs from like 2008 that I reprinted and brought into Pro Tools, it was tedious and annoying but I was capable of doing it https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcmdn6cfYCxy-KKtK4KDLbw?sub_confirmation=1 ^ A Smart Rapper Would Press That Subscribe Button ^ Music Record Label A and R Contacts List FREE: http://www.SmartRapper.com/ARsignup 200,000+ Followers On My Instagram http://www.Instagram.com/Rob_Level Basic Home Studio Gear Set Up For Under 250: Focusrite Scarlett Solo that also comes with Pro Tools FREE http://amzn.to/2wT48ub Audio Technia AT2020 refurbished microphone $70-100 http://amzn.to/2f1rWVS MK-10 Microphone Boom for $20 http://amzn.to/2wWgHnI A pop filter too http://amzn.to/2wVZWsJ The cables for the mic to to the preamp XLR Cable 6 FT - 2 pack http://amzn.to/2wWhjd8 My Main Music Channel http://www.YouTube.com/NovieNovak

You don't need CRAZY SUPER COMPUTER in order to record yourself at home.
Quite the opposite
You really just need a basic computer that allows you to work nice and smooth with audio and almost any basic computer nowadays will allow you to do that.
It's not 1999 anymore. We are even at a point now where a cell phones processor can handle and maintain an audio software and recording into it. It's crazy.
