Every studio, no matter how big or small they are, respect their equipment and promote proper use. Especially if you are running this as a home sound producer, you appreciate your equipment even more as it requires so much hard work to get to a point where you can confidently say that you have built a professional setup.

Fun Fact:

The first piece of equipment I ever bought, was a Tascam US-144. That’s where everything started.

Obviously this is only the audio equipment we have in place. What you would change on this setup? What would you add/remove, what do you like and what do you not?

Also, is equipment more important, or skills? Or maybe a combination of both? Let us know in the comments below!

Until the next post, be creative!
