Ello im from the slums of of gary, Indiana. I am 15 and own my own studio. Now I know what you thinking, some little kid and a 5$ mic aint a studio…well i got a pro mic and mixer and audio phaser and pc and everything, but My mic is right next to my pc on a desktop stand. Which means its not as clear and ppl have to sit down to rap(which ruins alot of swag). now im going to knock my closet out in my room to put the booth in, but I need to sound proof it. Now i dont think hustle and flowin it(egg carton boxes and shiit) would work well, but a guy told me that if you take those foam things you put on top of your bed to make it softer, and put it on the wall, it will work to some degree for it. Is this true? and if not is there a better and cheaper way to do it..

Also right now im using audacity to record songs off of. Which i dont think is good enough, is there something else that is better and pretty easy like audacity?

 

Thank you for helping, i know this is alot lol.. 

Tryin to make it in the rap game is hard…

i see you have a nice beginning set-up……lets see:


Sound Proofing- yes what that guy told you is true and probably one of the cheapest ways to sound prooving ur booth BUT the only flaw in that is that the material flakes off easily creating a mess on the floor and possibly give u or the artists allergies (which sucks) another alternative is to buy the professional  audio foam which can be found at ur nearest Guitar Center and they sell a box of about 10 foams for like 25$. On-line this is the cheapest one they have http://www.guitarcenter.com/Auralex-Studiofoam-Designer-Kit-422602-i1134515.gc


Programs: the next most easy program that i could recomend for a PC is CoolEdit (Pro)…..its pretty simple and gives you some nice quality recordings. I personally recomend investing on Pro Tools or Reason. Even thought they cost a few bucks and are more difficult to work with they produce some great quality recordings AND if u really get into the program u could even make ur own beats. If you ever get a Apple computer then it comes with probably the most easy-to-use program ever (Garageband) which is what i use.


There you go hope that helps
