Music Production and Equipment

Posted: Sat Jul 05, 2014 11:08 pm



I'm a newcomer to the art of music production, and am gonna be in a class next year that'll help me learn the ropes without dipping into my pocket too much- I'll have access to an iMac with GarageBand and possibly Logic Pro, a decent interface, 8 track mixer, general use mics and tons of cables of all sorts. The only things I'm going to buy for myself are a MIDI Keyboard and headphones- sans all the ''bass boosting'' and whatnet they use to make cheap headphones sound decent. I have a rather small budget, and I've just been looking through Guitar Center's site (Don't Kill me). I'm thinking about this Keyboard: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Akai-Profes ... =106224769 , But I'm clueless on what headphones to buy. Can anyone help me out? I'm trying to keep the headphones cheap- preferably under $50. I know that's a hell of a restriction, but I'm jobless atm and want to make sure I really enjoy it and am good at it before I go all spending-crazy on equipment; if this is something I want to pursue, as a hobby or otherwise, I'll probably switch over to mac when I upgrade my laptop. Thanks for any help!

If you are just looking at this pursuit as a blasé effort before serious considering a career in this field, I would recommend the Sennheiser HD 203. It is a superior quality headphone that coincidentally is your budget! At $49.95 from the site, http://en-us.sennheiser.com/studio-ster ... sed-hd-203 , these headphones will provide you with affordability, durability and of course; a great frequency response spectrum so your getting an accurate representation of what you will be engineering, mixing, producing, etc.. Visit their website for more headphone listings!


Keep in mind these are not top of the line headphones that would typically be used in a professional recording atmosphere; but for just beginning in the field these will suit you wonderfully!


Good luck!
