Record CD

I would like to record a CD as a for fun project.  I have made a few living room recordings with various bands and jam groups, but I would like to record a solo effort.

In order to do this, I will need to purchase some basic recording equipment.

There are a number of options.  One, would be a stand alone recorder like the Zoom – H4n Handy Recorder.

Another would be to get a mixing board like the Behringer – XENYX Analog Mixer.

A third option is an external sound card with microphone and instrument inputs like the M-audio – Fast Track Recording Interface that I could use with the microphones I already have.

A fourth option is to get a USB microphone like the Blue Microphones – Yeti Pro USB Microphone – YETIPRO.

Whichever option I go with, I’ll probably need to get some decent headphones or studio monitors for my laptop.  One option is M-audio – Studiophile 3″ 2-way Compact Studio Monitors (pair).

Depending on the setup, I will likely need to invest $300 – $800 in equipment.

I will update the blog when I am ready to start assembling my home studio.
