Folks have asked about my home studio setup. There's nothing very expensive – here are the deets:
The room: I got some moving blankets from Harbor Frieght (on sale, they are really inexpensive) and hung them to minimize sound reflections. I used grommets for holes in the edges and hung them from Command hooks. I've got a stand-alone wall divider and clamped another moving blanket over it. This gives me more flexibility with my space.
DAW: Reaper. Only $60. It's powerful, but not the most user-friendly. It can do just about anything Pro Tools, Ableton, etc can do - but it might not be obvious. It's especially good for comping - which is how I heard about it. Also it doesn't require a powerful computer. https://www.reaper.fm/
An older referbished Lenovo ThinkPad. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H6KXFC7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface - I got a 1st or 2nd gen from a pawn shop long time ago. https://focusrite.com/en/usb-audio-interface/scarlett/scarlett-2i2
Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone, for vocals, under $100. I got mine Amazon Renewed (aka referbished)
Boseen Microphone Shock Mount Mic Holder - for vocals. Got to have a shock mount. Also pop filter.
Behringer C-2 Matched Studio Condenser Microphones for instruments (guitar, cello) $59 at Sweetwater w/ free shipping (but I had a $10 coupon - so look for coupons). It comes with mic bar, but it was too small for me so I went with Neewer NW-036 Microphone Bar.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50S Professional Studio Monitor Headphones - for recording and in-studio listening. Amazon Warehouse - like new $65
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Professional Headphones (Renewed) - for listening to mixes. Amazon Renewed for $77
Add a few mic stands, guitar stands, and some cables and there you have it - my studio!
