Our guide to finding the best microphone.
How to develop your mic technique.


Fast Track Solo Best Home Recording InterfaceAvid Fast Track Duo - Best Home Studio Audio Interface'Limitation can be the mother of creativity' and here The Recording Revolution show just how true that axiom can be. One microphone, an Avid Fast Track Solo audio interface and Pro Tools Express are all that were used to make this great sounding recording.




While the amazing advances in technology allow professional recording at home the rule of rubbish in, rubbish out (or the less polite SISO) still applies. The guys at Recording Revolution knew this well and have used some great gear in the recording.

Great Home Studio Gear
Best Rock Tone Under £300
It appears to be some kind of limited run Fender Tele in the video but that classic crunch can be gotten for under £250 with this Squier Tele Custom II. P90 pickups are the key to that mid rich tone.
Classic Vox Tone
That driving tone has the unmistakable churn of a driven Vox amp.
Martin Acoustic Guitar
Always a popular choice, particularly for folk and rock musicians. Warm, smoky tone with great body, it can only be a Martin.
Squier Jaguar Bass Home Studio Recoring
Just go direct into your interface with the bass. The Squier Jaguar Bass gives you versatility to play in a range of styles, with single coil pickup switching.
Zildjian Cymbals
One tricky part of recording with one microphone is getting the right balance between the drums. Using quality cymbals will help, maybe slightly heavier ones to keep things balanced.

So that's you sorted with your backline instruments and ready to record with your Fast Track Solo and Pro Tools but what microphone to use for home recording? Fear not, here's our pick of the best condenser microphones under £100. Now you could use a dynamic mic but if you want to capture the full frequency range and all the detail with one mic then a condenser is the only choice. Here's our pic of the best budget mics.
