Setting up a studio requires first and foremost the necessary equipment, Size of the room and positioning of the equipment, adjusting the noise level, regulating the room surfaces so that there isn’t much reflection of sound in the room, and much more. Setting up a recording studio in Dubai is a bit of a gamble. This is because unlike the other developed countries, Dubai does not play an important role in its music and entertainment industry. The majority of the population relies on an is fond of foreign entertainment services and entertainers. This will be a major re-consideration while setting up a business in the music production industry. However, there is a minute growth and if worked right, you might even secure some significant profits.  Here is a list of essential items that you will need.

  • Audio Interface.
  • Microphone
  • Microphone Cable
  • Microphone stand
  • Headphones
  • Monitor speakers
  • Acoustic treatment
  • A laptop or computer

An audio interface of quality is highly important. This piece of equipment allows you to connect your microphone, headphone, and speaker to your laptop or computer. Here are a few things you must consider while setting up the recording studio:

Room Size:

Avoid rooms with a square shape as this promotes the build-up of standing waves which will interfere with your audio recording. You must make sure that the length and width of the room you choose aren’t exactly the same. When choosing the room, the room surfaces are an important consideration so that your sounds can have the right amount of absorption and reflection. Hard surfaces like marble, concrete, mirrors, or windows are very bad for music production. Wooden floors on the other hand are a must-have for the absorption of high frequencies.

Ceiling height:

When setting up your studio you must look for high or medium-level ceilings that give you the right amount of reflection. If the ceiling is too low, vertical reflections are likely to become an issue for you. For both mixing and audio production this will be very bad since it will cause a comb-filtering effect.

Noise Filtering:

A recording studio must be free from any kind of interruptions so that the audio can be properly recorded. There must not be any external interruptions from outside that will damage the quality of sound.When you have completely set up your studio and you are looking to hire the staff, you must make sure that a good Hindi voice over artists is hired. A majority of expatriates in Dubai are Hindi or Urdu speaking.
