And for the record, I remember Hoffman long before he had a studio, and he did fine.
Dont look at not having a studio as a handicap, use what you have
My studio has a desk, a midi keyboard, a computer and a set of active monitor speakers. That's it! Everything is software based these days. The studio mainly acts as a creative space so just find somewhere comfortable to work.
If you're having trouble finding sounds go and raid a module archive for protracker samples. Or grab some free vst plugins to create some sounds. There's also massive amounts of free sample packs online these days. By all means pillage my tunes! I used to steal so many myself.
