New Studio Project In Australia.

Post by alexspong »

Hello all,

I am looking to build a project studio in a shed in my backyard. After building the shed and treating it acoustically, I am looking to spend about $6000-8000 on a studio. I currently have close to nothing with the exception of all my instruments/amps, Fishman aura DI box and a few mics:

Sennheiser e838
Audix i5
Audix d6
Shure KSM27

I'm looking to build a basic set up to record/mix/master stuff similar to the sound of John Mayer or Dave Matthews and maybe some electronic music too. I need to get a computer of some sort too (mac or pc). I don't mind building one if I know what parts to get. Looking to use Pro Tools.


I want to be able to record guitar, bass, vocals and possibly drums (if this is a luxury out of my budget, I can track them elsewhere.) I want to be able to mix/master the songs. I also want to use it for live shows if possible with software instruments and midi.

So I guess my question is, What would you buy with that budget? Monitors, Pres, Additional mics, Computer, etc.

Thank you so much for your help!!!

We build recording rooms around here. Construction, hammers, nails, wire, sheetrock, hvac, all manner of hard work :)

You may want to look into or for your type of questions.
