How can I start recording from home, what do I need? Any advices about a good interface that won’t be too expensive or one I can use to make a decent recording homemade thing? – Alan Cross Clownn
Alright I’m going to give an example of a super easy setup:
You would need to have a computer and some sort of audio interface. There are tons of interfaces on the market nowadays and the majority are average so whatever you get it will definitely work. Check out Presonus Audiobox that comes in different sizes and prices.
You would need a DAW such as Logic, Pro Tools etc. I would suggest that you try out Reaper which is free to try and works on both Mac and PC. The DAW themselves are pretty much the same, it’s more about finding the one that you work the quickest in. I use Logic cause I’ve been using it for ages and I work fast in it. Pro Tools is just as good but why would I bother learn it if Logic works so well.
Now for quick plugins for guitar and bass I can’t recommend EZ Mix 2 from Toontrack enough. It has plenty of awesome presets for distorted bass and guitar. A good starting point to try out different sounds. There is also a guy called Lepou who has free amp plugins if you just google for it.
For drums I would also use Toontrack EZdrummer or Superior. Definitely get Metal Machine and Metal Foundry pack for tons of awesome metal samples.
With the setup listed above you should be able to reach a great level of quality without spending to much money.
