Looking to expand my Studio

Hey. So each week im savng some money to buy some more gear for my studio (which isnt really a studio). All i got so far is just an AKai mini. Could anyone suggest to me something else to get please? I know its a vague question but suggesting your favourite piece of equipment would be ok

Re: Looking to expand my Studio

oh boy, this thread again.

look, if you don't know what you want or need, you don't need to get anything. it's as simple as that.

save your money until you know what YOU want, because if you jsut buy whatever because some dude online told you to the chances are pretty damn high you'll end up regretting the purchase.

Im not gunna buy it just because someone told me to get it. I was gunna do my research into whatever is recommended and then decide for myself if i need it or not.

Re: Looking to expand my Studio

I didn't quite mean it that literally, but the fact that you have no idea what you want says to me that you aren't sure what you need it for.

On the other hand sometimes it's hard to tell what you really need until you're been stuck with totally the opposite so... meh. but usually if you think hard about what you wish to do and analyze what you need to do that, then it becomes obvious what to buy.

In any case if you don't have proper monitors or audio interface that always is a damn good place to start.

Have a good think about what your goals in music are. Do you want something good for playing live with? something to just produce with? do you want keys? do you want lots of faders, buttons, encoders...? do you just want midi control or do you want an actual synth?

Re: Looking to expand my Studio

With the right programs all you need is a controller that suites your performing/recording needs. I use the Axiom 49 because it has keys (obviously), buttons, sliders, knobs and drum pads. pretty much covers a lot of ground. I wouldn't mind adding a Kitara though!

Well...

I have one but it's not plugged in. Don't plan on plugging it in either anytime in the near / foreseeable future really.
