You can think of your DIY home studio as an open project.

You want to research and plan your studio well before you start to purchase gear because mistakes could cost you dearly down the line.

Your home studio set up can be painless,  as long as you keep these guidelines below in mind before you start.

Quick Tip: How to buy music studio equipment for your home recording studio,  the Renegade way...

You can research recording studio equipment online with the search engines,  manufacturer's web sites and music production web sites and forums. You can then compile your list and head out to your local music instrument store to test your top choices and obtain price quotes.

You can then go online again and compare the prices your local store gave with those of online music instrument stores.

This way you can either order the gear online should the price be better,  or should the price not be much lower online,  you can purchase from your local music store.

Your home music studio will always be a work in progress and will grow as your music production skills grow and you expand your music career. Try to avoid the "my music would get better when I have [enter name of new studio toy]" trap.  Remember,  your studio is your workspace and your studio equipment serve as tools.  You make the music.  So, do the Music Equipment Reality Check.

Get what you need to make your own music,  and once you have your basic home studio set up,  learn to use it well before buying new music equipment.
