    Dont record in a corner or in a closet, a good booth should be atleast 6m wide and walls covered with foam or what you prefer, otherwise the soundwaves will create delay effect

    I reall need to invest in a good mic so i thought this article was really interesting. 450 isn't actually a lot of money in the grand scheme of things.
    Ace article.

    I can definitely relate to #s 1 & 2.

    I'm not really advanced enough to know that much about the rest, although I know they are important steps.

    Good reading for someone like me who could use tips that will help with the rest of the process!

    This is great, definitely going to help me in the future to master my tracks better. I have learned that for a construct your own studio, what works the best is egg crate foam with the mic in the corner and the artist facing the corner.
