Online Guides: Computer Based Studios

This article will look at how to integrate a computer into different studio environments, and will highlight the issues of functionality and connectivity.

Welcome to our Online Advisor on creating a Computer Based Studio.

Studios have traditionally required many different types of equipment - mixing desks, tape recorders, effects units, dynamics processors, and of course a multitude of cables to join them all together with. These days, the computer can fulfil many or even all of these functions, bringing with it a variety of new techniques and working methods.

This article will look at how to integrate a computer into different studio environments, and will highlight the issues of functionality and connectivity.

Our Online Advisor extends to several pages - you can jump from section to section using the index below, or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
