  • If only I had known this before hand....

    As reviewed by Victor Krottner on 4/9/2014

    OK, So last December I bought this "COMPLETE" recording package because I thought it was "COMPLETE". Boy! Was I ever in for a surprise! I know nothing about home recording so I thought this is all I would need, after all it's "COMPLETE" right? Wrong! The first thing I had to do was to throw away the 4GB of RAM that the Mini came with and buy 16GB Ram (up to $180 more depending on where you get it from.) Then I discovered that the speakers this package shipped with are ok for a toy but in my opinion NOT for a HOME RECORDING STUDIO! I now use Makey MR5 Studio Monitor speakers (about $180 each x 2)because I couldn't hear ANY nuances through the tiny toy speakers they shipped. The cables that shipped with the package I think are second rate as well as I noticed a difference of at least 20% poorer performance with them as compared with top brand stereo cables which cost about $25 each ($50 for two). The Mics that came with the package are in my opinion only 75% good which means that they lose 25% of the nuances, if you think they are good enough then that's good for you but I only used them to test with and tossed them away. I now use a Rode NT1-A (about $229). The M-Audio Plus (professional external sound card)is the only part I liked except for the aggravation of signing up for the Lumlock key which the the M-audio will not play without. Because it ships with a stripped down copy of Pro tools or something you have to license it, I don't use Pro tools (or whatever DAW software it came with so it is a huge inconvenience for me. I bought a full version of Logic Pro software ($200 and a GREAT VALUE if you ask me!)and the textbook that applies to it(about $50 extra at Amazon plus shipping). Recording vocals with Logic Pro (and probably any other DAW) works best only if you have two separate HHD in your computer. It is impossible for ANY HHD to read and write both at the same time! When ever the record buffer is filled the HHD WRITES TO THE HHD! Even with "low latency" enabled I am still getting breaks in the vocal recordings rendering them completely useless. I have purchased a second SSD (Solid State Drive, Samsung 250GB SSD list price about $189.99) so I will have two drives one for reading only and one for writing only but I haven't installed it yet into my "COMPLETE HOME RECORDING STUDIO" so I am recording all my vocals to my TASCAM and then exporting those tracks into Logic Pro. SSD instal kit about $35 including freight from Amazon as Apple doesn't like users opening their Mac Mini's to install a needed second drive in there "COMPLETE HOME RECORDING STUDIO". So far to use their COMPLETE HOME RECORDING STUDIO I have needed an additional Approx $1,044 plus Logic Pro & textbook for a FULL VERSION Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) Will it Finally perform as I want it to after I install the second Drive? Stay tuned folks! Instead of buying this "Complete Home Recording Studio" I wish I would have been able to read this review first. Then, I would have bought a Mac with two drives already in it, M-Audio Professional grade external sound card (with out the aggravating "PLUS" nonsense for a partial version DAW which is useless to me)Professional grade Studio Monitor Speakers and professional top grade stereo speaker cables and Professional Mic. I Think I would have been money ahead if I did and would have avoided a whole lot of "Hard Knocks", aggravation and gnashing of teeth if I did even if I did spend more this way. I believe I would have ended up with a much better product. Anyway, That's my review, buy a Mac, M-Audio box, Speakers, wires and cables all top of the line and forget about this "Complete Home Recording Studio" that so far I have spent over $1,000 trying to get to work right.
