With the basic building blocks of audio interfaces monitors recorders and accompanying software it's a straightforward task to create a fully functional recording environment from scratch.

Recorders are at the heart of any studio and they can be hardware or software-based. Hardware recorders connect directly to microphones and instruments as well as the destination media making them effective all-in-one solutions. Recording software by contrast runs on a computer or mobile device and uses an audio interface to link up with sound sources. Adding a set of studio monitors allows the recording to be played-back and edited in high fidelity. To assist those building their home studios from the ground up brands like AKG Focusrite PreSonus and Yamaha have begun to offer ready-made recording packages which are bundles comprising some combination of hardware or software recorders interfaces monitors headphones microphones and accessories.
