Not only do I play professionally in a live band but I’ve also been a home recording enthusiast for many years. My first piece of recording equipment was my good old Tascam Portastudio 4-track which came with microphone, mic cord and a box of good cassettes. I made a lot of great recordings on that old Tascam and eventually wore the recording heads out. After the Tascam died I moved to a Fostex hard disk based recording setup that I built up to create a 24-track studio. But to get in line with the rest of the recording industry I had to build a Digidesign Pro Tools based recording studio.
I now have a Digi 003 rack system running Pro Tools LE in my home studio. It has been a great system to work with and I’ve become really good with computer based audio editing. It would be really difficult to go back to editing tracks without the ease of being able to edit audio on the computer. Pro Tools is a very powerful program that is fairly easy to learn but can be a challenge to master. If you’re going to get into home recording, I recommend starting with an entry level Pro Tools LE system.
Today I’m going to recommend a home studio recording package that is based around the Pro Tools LE software. This package includes everything you’ll need to get your home recording studio up and running. This package includes a Digidesign Mbox-2 Mini computer interface, a pair of M1 Active 320 USB Studio Monitors, an MXL 990 condenser microphone with shock-mount, 20′ mic cable, tripod mic stand, and a 3 meter RCA-to-1/4″ dual patch cable.
Not only do you get all that hardware but you get a fully functional copy of the new Pro Tools 8 LE software. This software will give you up to 48 simultaneous stereo audio tracks. You’ll also get a professional MIDI sequencer with a dedicated MIDI Editor window. To take a look at all the amazing features in this version of Pro Tools, just click this link -> Pro Tools 8 Upgrade. The bottom line is, you’ll be using the same brand of software that all the worlds major music studios are using.
If you’re just getting into home recording I highly recommend this package. If you’re moving from a traditional standalone workstation based recording system to a computer based system, I highly recommend this package as well.
