it’s been a long time since I wrote a post on the Blog, but I really wanted to share my home studio tour that I just made on YouTube:
Home Studio Tour Video by Beatzunami
I will show you all my audio setup that I use on a daily basis to make rap instrumentals, mix and mastering work for clients and much more..
This is my ultimate home studio setup, I’m 100% satisfied about my home studio and feel like I really do not need much else: I have the audio equipment and the home recording studio, the rest is all in my hands, and in my heart.
For those of you who like to read, here’s the video transcription of my Home Studio setup:
Hey this is Res Beatzunami productions, many of you were asking about a home studio tour so finally here it is. This is where actually make all of my beats mix them and master them as well. So let’s dig deeper and see what I use to make beats and then mix them and master them in my home studio. Let’s start from the basic this is my maschine studio white, this is where I produce many of my beats lately. I’m loving it I’ve bought it like maybe a year ago.
And since then all my boom that beats and all my sampled beats basically are produced with the machine studio.
Here you can see the Akai MPC renaissance, I just bought it lately. I haven’t used it that that much to be honest.
I used to have the MPC 60 then switched to the MPC 2500 which I love and I still miss maybe one day I’m gonna get it back and finally I got the new controller since I love the maschine studio so much I figured I should try the MPC.
Both are great machines and I suggest you try both and see which one you like the most.
Here the small arturia analog lab which is a midi controller with small keys. I just love this baby, it has so many knobs you can twist your synthss and do basically whatever you want and I’ve been using this a lot lately and the analog lab which is the software is just amazing. Full of great sounds, full of of different synths and lots to play with.
You can see my monitors now, I just bought these last year the MunroSonic are just amazing speakers and a very good pair speakers Focal CMS 50: they sound great and are very very detailed, but not as bright as the MunroSonic EGG150.
Both of the speakers are just great and they give you so much depth and detail about the music that you’re actually making and or mixing.
Here on the bottom you can see the munrosonic egg 150 amplifier. So from here you manage the volume and even the headphones so you can connect directly here or to the monitor controller which is right there as you can see and it’s a great device: you can switch from a pair of speakers to another one and you can put a mono output which is always great to check your mixes on.
On top of the amplifier you can check out the Sknote Somma which, Italian like me, is an analog summing mixer with saturation on each channel and each channel you can saturate your music independently.
Now let’s pull out my main keyboard which is a Roland FA-06 and it works wonders: it has so many sounds are all are beautiful. I love the pianos I love the guitars, the electric guitars are awesome, the organs are great and just sounds so good.
You have 16 pads on the right as you can see and you can actually record on this since it’s a step sequencer as well which I often do actually record strictly to my Roland and and then bounce all my files on logic and mix on logic.
Finally an analog synthesizer, the Arturia mini brute: I’ve not been using this too much to be honest but it has great sounds, punchy gritty and raw. Obviously you can’t live without without a technics SL 1002 mK II if you want to make beats: this is what I use to sample all my music that I they just love and put it on I listen to it, figure out what part needs to be sampled then put it back in the machine studio and logic and chop it up from there and start making may rap beats.
These are my cans aka headphones. Love both of these: the on the right you can see the Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium Edition.I just love these and they’re great for mixing and mastering music I often use them.
And on the left side you see the Beyerdynamic DT250, great for recording music: I don’t use them for mixing since their closed by design but they’re a great pair headphones.
This is the AIWA stereo which I use to check all my mixes and I need to make sure that my beats sounds great everywhere not just on my amazing speakers otherwise people would not enjoy.
Let’s see some other hardware from my home studio tour: this is my art pro channel which is a microphone preamplifier, actually a channel strip since it has compressor and a parametric equalizer. It works great: the preamp is awesome and the equalizer works great, and the compressor now I don’t use it anymore because I have this one as well: the warm audio 76 limiting amplifier.
This baby sounds great you can obviously choose the ratio between 4,8,12 and 20. I mostly use the 4 but when I want to smack some vocals I tried 8 ratio, super fast attack superfast release. That’s how I like it. Input knob output knob. Great piece of hardware by Warm Audio.
And what you’re looking at right now in the back are my bass traps by a GIK acoustics. At least the black ones, the blue one that you see is actually a bass trip that I made and it works great. Some other bass trapping on the back wall. This is what you need a home studio to make it work otherwise the low end will not sound correct.
Here are my microphones right now. This is what I use to record: it’s a rode NT 1000 , I bought this probably like 10 years ago and still works great like day one, amazing microphone very highly suggested.
And this is another microphone I use for when I make video tutorials and maybe like Skype conferences with clients. Great piece of hardware to have because this is a USB microphone and works just fine.And finally we can now see flash lights on the back wall attached to my amazing desk by home studio desk: this baby is great, a little expensive to be honest but it’s super nice and it works wonders: you can pull the keyboard stand out and its super solid.
I hope you like this short home studio tour, make sure to check my beats out and to subscribe to my channel and follow me on Instagram @beatzunami.
