Many artist are spending less money by creating their own in home studio. This is less expensive and gives the artist more access to the studio, and also gives an artist/band more time in the studio.

Get Started With Your Home Studio by Andrew Alexander

Get Started With Your Home Studio by Andrew Alexander | Home studio equipment | Scoop.it
After I posted an article about Affordable Equipment to Build A Mini Home Studio, on Linkedin I get some great comments about this with plenty new tips in how to create and what to buy if you want to make a music studio, even an home studio.

Eric Fisher's insight:

When making a home studio you need to consider what purpose you will be using it for and buy your equipment accordingly.

 

Pros: You can buy affordable software, monitors, and other equipment to record in a home made studio. A good sounding product may be produced in a home studio.

 

Cons: Commercial recording can't be dont in a home without more expensive equipment. You can't expect to be able to record a large live band in a home studio without investing properly and corners can not be cut in production in that aspect.

If the performance is embarrassingly bad, the recording will be embarrassingly bad | Home Studio Corner

If the performance is embarrassingly bad, the recording will be embarrassingly bad  | Home Studio Corner | Home studio equipment | Scoop.it

Nashville-based studio engineer, Joe Glider, cuts right to the heart of so many "recording" problems. Simply stated, if the performance is bad, "no amount of recording technique or fancy mixing tricks can cover it over." Even though he is talking about music tracks here, what he is saying applies equally to voiceover.

 

Just so we're clear, we strongly believe that having a good home recording set-up that produces a broadcast-quality recording is critical in today's competitive voiceover environment. All things being equal, if your recording is cleaner and crisper-sounding than your competition, it can definitely help tip the booking odds in your favor, BUT if the underlying performance isn't competitive, all the Neumann's in the world won't help.

 

So the bottom line is this...you need to master the voice acting craft first; otherwise why bother investing in expensive equipment?

 

Home Studio Corner: "In all the talk about recording technique, we MUST not forget that the first and foremost priority is the performance. If the performance is embarrassing, the mix will be embarrassing.

But the flip-side is also true, if the performance is absolutely amazing, the mix will likely sound great, too."

Eric Fisher's insight:

Home recording can be good or bad, the equipment may not be at fault for all recording problems. Performance factors in to the recording just as much as the quality of the equipment you use.
