This is my own home-studio (updated 2023)

Posted On 08/01/2023

Some time ago I published a post to have the cheapest home-studio. It is one of the most viewed on the blog, so I have made another post describing my own home-studio, in case you want to know what microphone I record with, and get a component to have a better quality in your recordings. 


As I said in the other post, a simple computer can be used to record, but with a better one, the software will work better. I have a PC bought by parts, to renew them over the years and have it optimized. I also have a good laptop, to continue working when I travel and in case the computer ever fails.

And for the PC, I decided to go with an ultra-wide screen, to have a wide view when editing and to be able to record while reading the text comfortably on the same screen.


I have had various microphones over the years. I currently use the Shure SM7B (Thomann / Amazon)a very popular microphone, especially on the Twitch platform. It has a very warm and smooth sound, perfect for voiceovers and for vocals on music recording.

Before I used the SE Electronics 2200 (Thomann) that, like the laptop, I use it when I travel and in case the current micro fails.

And to hold the Shure, I use the RODE PSA1 (Thomann / Amazon). I have tried other similar ones and, although this one is somewhat more expensive, it is worth it for the mobility, security and, in general, the quality it offers compared to other cheaper ones.


I was already using the Focusrite Scarlett Solo (Thomann / Amazon) for older microphones, as these often require an extra 48 volts, known as phantom power.

This microphone does not need it, but its biggest weakness is the audio output level is very low. So being able to turn up that volume from the interface, together with its low latency when recording, make this plugin an essential in any basic home-studio.

To connect it to the microphone, a good XLR cable is enough (Amazon).


To record and to edit the audio, I use the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X (Thomann / Amazon).
I bought them a few years ago, guided by the good reviews and, in fact, over time they have had a greater impact and have increased in value.

Also for years, I use the speakers: Bose Companion 2 (Amazon) and they're not exactly professional studio monitors, but they do sound amazing. They are small, with a minimalist style and from the Bose brand, which is synonymous with quality. 


To reduce the reverberation in the room, I looked for acoustic panels that were good absorbers and also aesthetically pleasing. None convinced me, until I saw the ones from Acouspanel (12 pack / 28 pack Amazon).

In addition to the improvement in the quality of the recordings, they have a very elegant design and are visually great. I recommend taking a look at their website as they have more similar products.


There are many software options: from the simplest to record only the voice, to the most complex to record professional music productions. In any case, with hours of tutorials and practice, anyone can manage it.

I have been using Cubase para to record and edit audio for over ten years. I started using it to record music (in fact it is the main function of this software) and I am already quite familiar with its interface.

On its website you can get the Cubase Elements version, which is the cheapest and does not lack any function that you might miss. 

Well, this is the equipment I use today... If you liked the post and you are interested in the world of dubbing and voiceover, you can subscribe to my youtube channel and follow me on my instagram 😉
