    Everyone always askin what are the basics of a Hip Hop Home Studio... so here

    This is what i use in my VERY basic home studio to make Hip Hop music

    Making music to me is a pure hobby, i dont have much money to spend on it, nor would I if i had the money. I do, however, make pretty decent sounding music from this very basic set up:

    -Nady StarPower Mic (forget which number i have) $20
    -M-audio mobile Pre USB preamp/audio interface $150
    -Basic home PC
    -Basic headphones/PC speakers
    -Basic CD-RW drive
    -Reason 2.5 $400
    -Fruity Loops Producer 4 $100
    -M-Audio Oxygen 8 Midi Controller $150
    -Cool Edit 2.0 $100
    -Misc Stuff (Pop/Wind screen, Mic Stand, wires, etc.) $50-$60

    Now i didnt buy all this stuff at once, but even if you did, it wouldnt be all that crazy... assuming you already have a home PC with basic speakers and a CD-RW in it it totals like $1000

    and lets face it the most expensive things, the software, most of you are just gonna bootleg off the net anyway... so that cuts your costs more than in half.

    I make beats with my Oxy 8 on Reason or FL, record with my mic and preamp into Cool Edit, and use Cool Edits basic stuff to mix/master, then burn it to a CD

    works perfect

    hope this helps somebody

    I see nothing specifically "hiphop" about that setup.

    What I do see is stuff that would allow you to make MUSIC..of any genre.

    -Basic headphones/PC speakers
    That is in most cases not sufficient. Basic PC speakers usually suck. So does basic headphones. You'll need to spend some cash on that

    And the mic... if u were really limited by budget you would do a hellva lot better to skimp on a piece of software rather than budget urself $20 for a mic.

    at first I figured id start small and then work my way up

    but if it aint broke, dont fix it

    ive had no problems whatsoever with the mic... the quality is just fine for what im tryin to accomplish



    and as for the dude who's talkin about my speakers/headphones i agree with you... thats prolly gonna be the next addition is either some higher end speakers or some monitors, but i gotta save some money up first

    but its easy i just burn CDs, listen to it on as many different things as i can, then figure out what i need to change and repeat the process until it sounds good to me

    so i'm not the only person that has to hear my stuff in a car to tell if my mix is right.

    do speakers really make that much of a difference?
