As an individual new to music production when he said "relatively affordable microphone" I wasn't expecting $400

I'm only 15, but I'm starting to set up a little studio in my bedroom. Out of all the videos on youtube, this helped me the most :)

I had a lenovo laptop from the mid 2000's that my father gave me and I used it for years. I eventually learned programming using that computer and started freelancing since last year. I now have alenovo legion y540 now which is amazing, a pair of audio technica ATH mx40, a focusrite 2i2, a scarlet studio microphone (worst out of this list) and I just ordered my first ever midi keyboard, akai mpk mini.

Anyone who wants to get into music production should be shown this video. Awesome work! I guess that if you are more into making strictly electronic music without recording your own samples by microphone, the microphone/mic stand/pop filter parts of the list can be replaced by good value synths/drum machines/sequencers.

Seriously, I wish you had been my music tech teacher in college. I spent £3000 a year on that course and all I wanted to know was what you have explained in this video in less than 8 minutes! Love your channel so much!

as a person who’s looking to start to make music, this is definitely the best video i’ve seen so far. Well organized and concise, but still goes over pretty much everything you need with examples. I especially enjoy that ending message, to just work with what you have and do the most you can with it until you have more options. Thank you! 🙏

The purpose of buying gear is to enjoy having gear. Accept it as a hobby and never expect it to make your music better.

Dear Andrew, I've been following you for quite a while now and I really like the stuff you're doing, basically because you are a genuinely nice person and because you put so much effort into producing quality and entertaining art. But as I'm watching this video today, you, again, gained so much more of my respect with what you say in the last minute of the video. It just emphasizes what an excellent guy you are! The world would be a much nicer place if more people realized what you're saying in that last minute. I hope that life only brings you good experiences and that you continue to find joy in what you're doing!

When it comes to acoustic treatment of a room you can really get away with a lot just by measuring how the frequencies respond in the room via professional measuring software with a microphone that works alongside it(usually comes in a bundle package) But yes removing some reverb in your room is generally recommended :) Especially if you work with singers. I can definitely hear the lack of treatment in my room when singers comes by and give their everything they got when recording, but i can usually tame the reverb because i've made my room sound "neutral" just by measuring my room and then adjusted my monitors so they have a somewhat accurate sound despite of a non-treated room.
