Two Tin Cans and a String

A long, long time ago, in a world where analog was king, a boy dreamed of owning his very own recording studio. But it would've cost millions!

Today, anybody with enough money to buy a high-mileage used car can build a pretty good digital studio in a spare bedroom.

Still, having the right stuff, and knowing how to use it, marks the dividing line between the hobbiest and the pro. Here's what Joe Van Riper uses to work as a pro:
