Consider it another marvel of the digital age--or the latest evidence that the beautifully difficult, soul-taxing art of music creation has irretrievably slid into the hands of talentless idiots. Either way, with the help of a computer, a few peripherals, a variety of entry-level software and two weekends' worth of struggle, I have produced my first single. It's hardly a secret that musical production has been striding boldly into the digital age over the past three decades. Software that enables instruments to interface directly with PCs was pioneered in the 1980s, and current programs pack all the goodness of a full production studio into a laptop, with virtualized instruments, amps, effects, mixing boards and multitrack recording machines all onscreen. This has had a profound effect on the music industry--lowering the barrier to entry to the point where a small band with a computer, a microphone and a few instruments can produce studio-quality recordings.
A buddy of mine recently asked what he should get for his home studio if he only had $50 to spend. As I was coming up with options for him, I thought this would make a great article! Everyone is trying to make smart choices with his/her money. Here are ten ways to improve your studio without breaking the bank:
A big, deep bottom end is a key mix ingredient in today's hit records. True, some types of music — folk, for example — wouldn't sound right with gargantuan bass and drums pounding away.

Since the times of Led Zeppelin the world of Doubleneck guitars was dominated by names like the Siamese SG used by the likes of Jimmy Page or the Gibson EDS-1275, used by Don Felder; Villette Guitars is now trying to make a mark on this industry by launching their own line of custom electric doubleneck guitars, and I must admit that they have packed quite a punch in every one of these guitars! The standard doubleneck guitar is the amazing combination of a 12 stringed guitar neck on the top and the usual 6 stringed guitar neck at the bottom, thus allowing the player to have a large span and a lot of room for experimenting. The new custom range of Villette doubleneck guitars boasts of a unique design through which they were able to narrow the gap between the two necks thus making the guitar lighter and more user friendly.
One of the explicit goals of CEMC is to incite users to develop their own working methods and creative procedures. Part of this is accomplished through information provided in lectures and in your time engaging the software available in the studios.

Indeed, many represent unique compositional tools unmatched in the world of commercial music software. Below is a recent compilation of recommended software for various operating systems.
