Optional Equipment for Professional Producers
As mentioned above, with a program such as Dubturbo, as long as you have your computer and the software, there is not any additional hardware required to make your own dubstep songs. Especially with the built in keyboard drum machine feature.
Should you be seeking to compile a professional grade music studio, engaging a program such as Pro Tools (from $430.00) then you may want to consider:
Mixing Desk/Console: All Digital Audio Workstations have the capacity to mix (change levels/volumes) though the constant use of the mouse can become irritating and not to mentioned painful on the wrist, for hours on end. Opting for a Pro Tools package such as the LE with the small console is certainly a very viable option. However any decent DAW will have the capacity to connect with most mixers, which can be bought online second hand for great deals.
Monitor Speakers: In order to truly hear what you are creating, studio grade speakers are essential. However, headphone alone will do the job. (see below) There are the industry standard Yamaha NS-10, which are obsolete and perhaps the closes replacement being the HS-80M. It should be noted that these speakers don’t actually sound that good, it just so happened most engineers commenced to engage them, so there it became the benchmark for a good mix. Perhaps if you can make something sound good on the NS-10, then on decent speakers it will sound amazing. However, cheaper brands such as Behringer (yes, they are German) are great value.
Studio Headphones: If you have money to splurge on any other single piece of studio equipment, it should by all means be headphones or “cans”. Brands like Sennheiser, Shure and AKG all represent good value and cannot be overlooked for entry level and highest professional level options. The bottom end is honestly represented in good studio Cans, and is especially important with Dubstep.
Again, they don’t have to be big brand-name headphones, but they do need to be headphones.
