Having a home recording set-up on your Mac can be a pricey endeavor, even if you’re just a beginner. From the already expensive Mac, to the audio interface, speakers, mics and more, we are talking hundreds or even thousands of dollars here. Buying each of the elements individually certainly isn’t cheap, but every once in a while we see some very notable bundle deals pop-up that can be a very smart buy for those just getting into music production at home:
