Studio Gear List

I receive many specific questions about the equipment and software I’m using in my project studio. So, I’ve compiled a complete list below (will try to keep this up to date), in hopes it will help point those of you interested in the right direction. I want to re-iterate that I didn’t get this all at once – I encourage you not to get overwhelmed with thoughts of what you “need” to be creative and make your best music. Use what you have NOW and introduce new tools in your studio, when you can, as needed. Hope this helps and have fun in the process!
