Recently I’ve been asked a fair bit what the perfect home production setup is for under £1000. It’s a tricky task as most EQ’s and compressors I’d recommend cost around that price range. Having owned nearly all the studio gear recommended over the years, I have a good idea of what is a quality unit for the price. So here goes if I was on a budget of £1000 to kit a home production studio out, this is what I would advise.
Monitoring: KRK VXT 4 ( pair ) £338
Interface: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 £125
Midi Controller: Akai MPK Mini MK 2 Keyboard Controller £69.00
Acoustic Treatment: Acoustic Foam Room Pack 24 Sound Treatment Studio Wedge Tiles (new ebay) £27
Mic: Oktavamod Hulk 990 £250
Reflection Filter: Chord Microphone Acoustic Reflection Filter (new ebay) £64.99
DAW: Imagine Line Fruity Loops Studio 12 £113
