Looks like a pretty good little primer on setting up a home studio, Steve.

A home studio can be a good option for folks that want to do a lot of recording and can manage the space and gear for it.  It can seem a bit extravagant to someone who has never considered it, but compared to buying time in even a small professional studio, it really isn't.  Going to a professional studio and getting some experienced personnel with very good gear and a studio that is already well set up to do the recording so the player can focus on just the playing is the much shorter learning curve. 

I haven't been sure how many folks here are actually interested in anything beyond maybe getting a mic better than what came free with the computer or on a communications headset from the dollar store. LOL 

Not sure how many would be up for building GOBOs or even draping walls to kill the ring in a room.

Have a look at:
