Alright, I'm looking to make a small home studio and since my dads a contractor he said he'd be willing to maybe hook up the basement with some sound proofing and s**t for me since he gets discounts at places that sell it. But I don't wanna be in a sound proof room with some def jam rapstar mic, so I'm looking to upgrade. I'm on a budget, so keep in mind I'm 16 years old and on a grind so probably $100-$150 is a good maxed out range, and that's if I'm lucky. I'd like something cheap and easy to use, but I'm completly new at the equipment s**t, so any help is appreciated. I'm looking in to USB condenser since they're nice and easy to use with my laptop and my un-tech savvy self but if anybody can help me figure out the other s**t then i dont mind whatever.

you dont want to sound proof anything, you want to sound “model” your room


owens cornering fiberglass is the way to go, cheap and works great, but with your budget i dunno if your talking equipment and your parents are gonna pay for the room?


or if this is all you have to work with $150.. you aint going to get much


go with moving blankets then to model the room, cheapest way, hang em in front of you, on the ceiling


buy $100 mic, brand probably wont matter much theyll all be competitive, i would stay away from behringer but thats just me..

strange and I’m sick…my minds fucked because my brain’s in my dick

My dads gonna front the room to me in exchange for working for him. I have to get all my equipment and everything though, there's no way they're dropping that much for me unfortunately lol thanks for the help everybody, appreciate it. I got a lot more of an idea now.

I have this microphone it's pretty cool but I don't feel like it's for rap music more like for acoustic or pod casting type of stuff. I try my best to get the best sound out of it but it takes a lot of good mixing and also the place that you're in will determine how good your sound will be. I guess my room isn't the best place to do my recording so it might just be my surroundings that hold me back from getting the best quality possible out of this microphone. Don't get me wrong it's a decent microphone I regret buying it when I did because a few months later the price dropped drastically but then again I used it since day one so I'm not complaining. For the price that it's going for today though I would definitely think about making the purchase. It will give you decent recording quality and since it's plug and play you won't need any external hardware which could be a good or bad thing at the same time but it will serve you well. You can check out some of my tracks to compare the quality most of those were made with the same microphone you will be able to tell on some tracks the quality can be hit or miss which can be due to the microphone or just me not recording or mixing the vocals well.
