How To Build A Recording Studio in Your Bedroom!
If this is your first recording studio setup and you have NO idea how to set it up, this is the easiest way to build your studio in your bedroom.
1. Studio Microphone
If you purchased a USB microphone,
then you do NOT need an audio interface!
If you purchased an XLR Studio Microphone,
then you will NEED an audio interface.
2. Audio Interface
An audio interface has a USB connected at the back of the equipment.
That USB is meant to connect to your PC or Laptop.
You need this only IF you have an XLR Microphone.
(And XLR microphone CANNOT plug into your laptop...)
3. Studio Headphones!
You want to use headphones that are CLOSED BACK. When you are choosing your headphones, consider a closed back pair of headphones. You don't want the music to bleed through and be recorded into your microphone.
(LEFT is open back, RIGHT is closed back)

(best for recording vocals, if you sing!)
Look into open back headphones that fit your budget by clicking here!
(best for mix & mastering, if you're a producer!)
Why should you consider getting both?
Once you become more familiar with music making, it is said that studio headphones give you a more accurate sound of your mix. You don't want headphones that BOOST the bass when you "lack" bass in your music.
How would you know that you need more bass?
Studio headphones give you a "flat" response, that way it is the most accurate.
I use both because I sing & produce my music myself.
Plug in your headphones to your audio interface! Then you're ready to sing.
