I assume most people here starting out will have a home studio, as prices for professional studios will be too steep. I wanted to ask therefore how you went about creating a home studio space. What kind of things you need and how you set it all up. For example I think I'd need some soundproofing but not sure on the best way to sort that out.

I have considered this. I share an apartment with two other guys. I have the biggest bedroom of the three with a pretty big walk-in closet. I am thinking of soundproofing that small area. It has doors as well. I figure that will be good enough to start and I can block out pretty much all noises. I would just do what podcast dudes do or streamers on Twitch and use the foam pads on the walls.

There things:

Xport, the image you have shared look like the kind of things I see a lot of people using, not just in home studios but also those just wanting a room for when they are recording different things. They seem to soundproof the room well and also stop the echo sound you can sometimes get. I would suggest they are a good purchase, but to do a big room you are likely looking at a pretty big expense. Not sure what you would do to cover the doors either, could these be used on them?

When I was still in school, the music room used full panels. I can't remember what they are called but they were titles with little holes in them. They worked by keeping the sound in the room and also blocking out the sound. I would imagine this isn't cheap though like you said.
