Building an at-home recording studio is the cherry on the top of a DIY music career and may help you get to that next level as a musician. But your spare room covered in blankets and your IKEA desk might not be cutting it anymore. Despite how versatile (and durable) your SM58 and Focusrite interface are, you might be in need of an upgrade. The infographic below, created by, breaks everything you need to know about building a home studio on any budget.

The infographic shows the basic 10 types of equipment every home recording studio needs. Each column represents equipment for different price ranges. This is particularly helpful when figuring out where to spend and save, depending on your needs. The budget ranges are beginner ($150-$500), intermediate ($500-$1,000), and semi-pro ($1,000-2,000).

In addition to the equipment, it also includes a special spot (on the right side of the graphic) designated for home recording studio kits. These are specially priced and great packages to help you save.
