Useful Tips To Help You Buy Inexpensive Music Gear

Jun 18, 2008
Musicians and music lovers can't do without music gear. But they are a bit expensive. And people have a notion that if you want to buy a good gear then you have to spend a lot of money. But this idea is not fully correct. While it is true that the majority of them are expensive, that does not mean that you will not find any good quality gear at a reasonable price. You just need to have a crystal clear idea and have to know where to search and how to search for them.

There are lots of inexpensive music gear available now. Let us have a quick glance at some of them.

Microphone

Let us talk about microphone first. They are very important for doing music. Their price has fallen now. There are a whole lot of microphones available now and that too at reasonable prices. Marshall Electronics' MXL V67G, Behringer BL can be a good option for you.

Mixer

Mixer is necessary for music and also for your home studio. There are lots of mixers available now in the market. Some of them come at low price. But be very careful before going for them. Before buying, you should be aware of some facts. You should check out how many channels they are offering. Make sure that they offer you at least 12 to 16 channels. Otherwise it will not be much useful.

The next big factor that you should keep in mind is the digital features. Many low price gear now provide various digital effects like reverbs. Many of these effects are inbuilt. These effects are also very good for general use.

Another option is having a firewire option. It will help you to send signal to the computer from the mixer. But this option is relatively new and it hasn't appeared as an indispensable feature. So it is up to you whether you will use this or not. The Behringer mixers and the Mackie mixers are good quality low budget mixers.

Audio interface

Audio interface connects the mixer with the computer. It also converts the analogue audio signal to digital signal. Using a firewire audio interface or USB Audio interface will be good for you.

Computer Audio Workstation

Computers are very important for making music. You can mix music at home if you have a pc. But you just need a good configuration. There are lots of brands available that will provide you good PCs, both laptop and desktop at low prices. Brands that give good quality desktop are Apple iMac Desktop Computer with Intel Core, Apple Macpro recording package, etc. Laptops brands are, Apple MacBook Notebook computer with Intel Core, Rain Recording Live book L4 Laptop Audio Computer etc.

Studio Monitors

Studio monitors are almost like sound speakers. But they have got some differences. For instance, audio monitors are specially made to deliver the recorded material accurately. Alesis M1 Active 620 2 way near field Monitor, Behringer B2030A Active Studio Monitor, Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A Active Nearfield Monitor, Event TR8XL Tuned Reference Biamplified Monitors,etc. are good quality studio monitors.
