There are several mistakes a person who has just started a home studio usually tends to make. The first mistake is “Trying to act like a pro studio”. Beautiful music can be created in a simple setup rather than dreaming of fancy high-tech pro studios with highly decorative gears, lights and accessories. The second mistake one makes is “Not trying to be a pro studio”. This is opposite to the first mistake, but then there has to be a balance and one should be confident enough to work like a pro studio. When a mixer starts out and if the access to expensive equipments is not possible, there can still be creativity in music and efficiency in deadlines which are also factors in a pro studio’s success. Third most popular mistake is “Forgetting to have fun”. Concentrate and create good music but not at the cost of having fun.
