Do I Need Thousands of Dollars to Produce Good Music?

I hear so many starting music producers that tell you that you need to spend thousands of dollars in order to make great music.  But in reality, the equipment is just the vehicle that helps you create the song. Yes, certain mics, preamps, compressors, plugins etc, give you different results, but all the equipment out there in the market covers the same main function; which is to help you transmit your musical ideas into a stereo mix.
No question, having a wider range of “toys” helps, but whats more important is to really know how to use what you have, and really practice not only your mixing skills but your musical skills as well.

My advice; take your time, explore and let your creativity tell you what equipment is necessary for transmitting that sound you have in your head, so you don’t end up spending thousands of dollars in equipment you really don’t know how and when to use…
