That mic is great, but you can get something like an SM57 much cheaper, if she's recording acoustic guitar.

If you want a pretty good vocal mic, that will also be cheapish you can get something like this.

Or just buy an sm58 which is a cheaper version of the other one you just showed, and is good for doing live stuff if you want to do that.

You can also get a 4x4 input thing so that she can multitrack into a daw, or just a smaller one if she's only ever going to record like 2 tracks at once.

I got something like this.

The SM57 and SM58 are pretty much standards in the music world.

That being said, IIRC the SM7b (the mic you're looking at) is what Micheal Jackson recorded a lot of his stuff on ( the bad album at least), so it's def pro level.

I splurged on this stand but I love how easy it is to adjust in a pinch (no more tightening as tight as you can).

For vocals I prefer the round weighted base cuz it’s easier to avoid tripping on. But I got a boom attachment for reach (can’t find the link sorry!)

I haven’t taken the plunge to actually bring a full keyboard onstage, but I have two of these - great for my Bass Station and Octatrack, and unobtrusive on a stage.

I put other gear on this keyboard stand, which is nice because the height and length are both adjustable, and it collapses quite easily.

At home I have a Pyle Z-stand, but I haven’t even thought about putting it in my car since I got it - kinda intimidated by the packing implications tbh :)

There's tons of information online on how to properly set up your room for good acoustics, so I'll just tell you what to Google.

  • 38% rule
  • Equilateral triangle speaker placement
  • DIY acoustic panels
  • Overhead cloud acoustic panel
  • Bass traps
  • Damping vs diffusion
  • DIY acoustic diffuser
  • First reflection points acoustics

    And yes, you absolutely want to set up your room properly. It makes an enormous difference in clarity and stereo separation that you will absolutely benefit from, even if you consider yourself a beginner.

    And for the most part, setting it up is almost free. It just takes some preparation and basic equipment.

    Here's some examples of how acoustic treatment can help:


    If you want to make some panels, here's how various insulation types compare: I recommend UltraTouch. It's denim, which is a lot less nasty than fiberglass, and is just about as effective, too.

    If you haven't already, I'd get some speaker stands while your mirrors are being shipped. They're not expensive. These are mine:

    There are tons of DIY panel designs out there. This is what I built:

    Please let me know if you have any questions!

This is also how I work. A smidge more detail from my set up -- I have multiple "Cord Control Kits" (fancy name, it's just a plastic tube); cannot find these anymore other than eBay, so also use these sleeves.

I use the sleeves / kits are for my racked gears' power, audio, and MIDI, separately. (Keeping power and audio separately to avoid interference, and MIDI just for appearance.)

For my desk -- computer power cords, video cables, USB, Thunderbolt, &c -- these are routed as much as possible behind the desk and behind my keyboards, occasionally twist-tied or velcro-tied to the desk or keyboard stand legs. When there's a bit of a mess I'm a bit embarrassed to write, then hidden behind a cloth hanging behind the desk (so the cables are between the wall and the cloth).

Just as /u/wrongfulness writes, cables stay in place when I take gear to a gig; this is important to me, although having a double set of cables can get expensive, and then they themselves need to be managed. I have a cable wall (like this material, but not exactly; I can't find exact product image this minute), where I drape all my extra cables, grouped by type and (roughly) by length.

Set up can be a chore, including keeping from inter-weaving cables in the racks. At one point, frustration led to unplugging one end of most cables from the gear, then re-running it more carefully.

I'm afraid I rambled here, sorry, but wish you well with finding your own solution; I feel it is quite useful and satisfying to have solid cable management and ultimately worth the effort.

Edit: to add: my room is in a partial square shape. Desk, with racks to the left and keyboards to the right and behind (with space to get in the middle :) ). This means running MIDI and ADAT from keyboard to racks, for which I have one of these, and do not step on it. They do not work as well as I'd have liked ... I had to tape the bottom slit closed to keep cables from popping out. I dislike this across-the-floor solution, but couldn't see purchasing long enough cables to go around the perimeter. (For taping, because I wanted to not get sticky on the cables, I put painters tape along the slit, with the non-sticky side against the floor runner, sticky side facing up, and then used duct tape to do the main securing to hold the slitted area closed.)

Not sure why I'm writing so much; sorry.

Edit 2: wrong words; ugh.

Bon Courage :)

The mixcube is great 2nd opinion when working on mixdowns. It's not necessarily the best sounding speaker, but gives a pretty clear picture how things sound in mono (and whether you need to adjust certain track levels based on that). The riser stand is a cheap laptop stand I got off of amazon:

I take it you’re looking for a long term storage solution but with dayvto day accessibility? As in easy in, easy out, and it’ll be out of sight as well.

After you find an appropriately sized case, you’ll want to set up some pick and pluck foam inserts so everything has a spot. No more digging through bins for what you need. Prioritize the stuff you already use constantly, then put the rest into your big Rubbermaid container in the closet. (And mark it “summer clothes” so your wife doesn’t complain about your hoarding)

Then you’ll want a few hundred of these to keep your wires neat and undamaged. Beats rolling them around the wall wart or using rubber bands.

It’s a little less accessible than the cable hangers but it clears the clutter.

Yes, go back to IKEA! Somewhere near the end, around the lamps and ceiling lights, I found these cheap cable snake sleeves:

I also use these for cables under the desk after separating out of the snake and organizing under the desk:
These too:

And these are great for individual cable control:

I've added to and removed from my setup half a dozen times since I last organized my wires so they're a mess again, so be aware that it's a constant battle.

Edit: these look pretty good too, am going to get some myself if I don't make it to IKEA soon:

It’s a Samson LTS50 laptop stand. My only complaint is it has a tiny lip at the top edge which makes keeps the Push from laying perfectly flat. I’ve considered dremeling it off or something but I’m pretty sure the end result would just be worse than living with it. Otherwise it’s fantastic.

Also interested in this question's answer. I'm in need of ideas for maximizing space while still maintaining a tight image. Amazon seems to sell a lot of speaker mounting arms but for bookshelf type speaker weight thresholds and usually not with the type of positioning options I'd like (both axis).

For the computer monitors they have pretty usable options though:

Clamping type

Sitting type

(Mind the size limits on the above, there are more heavy-duty options if you need)

Actually that's something I vexxed about for awhile while planning the final state for the room. I used to have a Quicklok 2-tier stand, but it was all crooked and problematic.

The stand on the right was bought from a local synth shop owner who didn't need it any more. It's a Pro Line and I paid him seventy five bucks for it. It's pretty sturdy and meant for touring, so the footprint is a big larger than I'd prefer.

I just bought the one on the left last week from Amazon. It's the more durable of the 3-tier Quicklock stands available. I'm really happy with it. Very precisely made and sturdy. Here's a link:

>cushion things that angle them nicely

Monitor isolation. Tidies up the frequency range by isolating the sound vibrations so they don't vibrate the desk/stand/whatever surface the monitors are on.

I have this brand for my 305's and they work perfectly and are cheaper than other equivalents. The ones in the link will fit your 308's.

u/djvirgen · 5 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

I use one of these laptop stands:

It's pretty nice, works well to hold up the MS-20 Mini, or can also hold a Novation Circuit, Elektron Analog Heat or Elektron Digitakt. Ironically, it does not work well for holding my laptop, because my laptop has a curved bottom that causes it to slide over the little lip.

AmazonBasics Ventilated Adjustable Laptop Computer Holder Desk Stand

Works perfectly!

u/BearSauce · 3 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

I think it's this one or one close to it.

If you like the Eames Louge Chair style, but don't want to spend a fortune, Amazon has a few cheap options available on. The one I got was from Flash Furniture & seems to be holding up well so far..

u/saccademusic · 2 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

I grabbed these. Although you have to use a fair amount of them, they don't do damage to your desk, they get the job done and are cheap. Plus if you want to move your setup around, just use the same clips for different wires and you also don't have to redo a wire solution every time you get a new piece of gear or stop using an old one.

u/jseego · 1 pointr/MusicBattlestations

I like the concept, but for roughly the same price, you can get something like this (albeit on sale).

I got this desk for around $150 and, though not a real music production desk, it works for my home situation.

Your idea is very cool, but I'm not sure it's price-competitive.

u/semi_colon · 1 pointr/MusicBattlestations

Thank you, this looks like what I need. If I get something like the Furman M-8×2, should I be plugging everything into that directly or is running the power strips I already have into that an option? (Or would it be defeating the purpose somehow?)

u/rix0r · 2 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

These are them:

They basically have two different heights, as you can see with the two different sizes of stanchions. There are also short little spacers you can use to add a little more height, or just put them on two corners to make them angle up or down, like I did.

u/lilblovesyou · 1 pointr/MusicBattlestations

Gotcha, Thanks for that I was looking at this, damn thing is out of stock everywhere.

No the speakers were these. They don't have xlr on these ones. I have them boxed up and ready to go out.

EDIT : Just ordered these let me know what you think.

u/anjuna127 · 2 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

this, for your Push, which is sitting so nice & so central. thank me later.

And I also mounted a power strip and usb hub under the desk along with some of these:

u/djshiva · 1 pointr/MusicBattlestations

The TB-03 is on one of these:

The Bass Station is on a combination of a metal folding baking rack that I got at Target years ago and can no longer find, with one of these on top:

Look for folding baking racks at your local store that would have those sort of things. ;)

u/foary · 2 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

Do you mean the dual monitor stand or the 2nd level to the desk? If you mean the monitors, I used a Vivo stand from amazon. The 2nd level was the Ikea Lack shelf with the 6 inch Ikea CAPITA legs (thanks again to /u/rxhnck for the idea).
