Gear advice

Are you looking for the right gear for your recording set-up and budget?

Choosing the correct item for your home recording set-up is easy for some and confusing for most. Even if you have been working with audio for years, things are constantly changing. The marketing guff and searching the net usually sends you down a rabbit hole of time-wasting.
The core of Indigo Oak Studio is to help people set up and record by taking the mystery and costs out of recording. Right now, that cost you will save is time, patience and disappointment.
