The recording is actually more simple and cheaper with every year. Prospective recording engineers or independent producer artists need to invest thousands to thousands of equipment. Newer recording equipment offers more capabilities and flexibility with lower price labels.
The biggest news in the field is of course a digital recording technology. Everything can be recorded digitally, directly from the board. Digital recording makes sound clearer and clear, and a wider frequency range.
New digital technology brings with a new and more compact mixing console.

All in one amplifier / combo microphone is available, which can record when you play and ideal for capturing direct performance without noise noise crowds, poor microphone placements, etc.
Because acoustic studios are very different versus live music places, equipment can be divided into more suitable for one goal than others.

Look for separation of this goal to become a developing part of the recording equipment market, as well as musical equipment in general.
When uniting your own recording studio, consider this new technology and how you can use it for your specific purposes. You will want to use anything and everything that helps you achieve that perfect sound, and new digital recording equipment can now get you there.
