my main concerns would be recording/editing via midi using cubase and ableton so i need to get the very lowest latency possible with the greatest most pure sounds from an interface(with the most solid reliable drivers) , and i have a male vocal with me so i will need to get a top vocal material as well .(ps: we make any genre of music except rap) and only internally recording a folk/classic guitar , the rest is all midi. so the equipment i initially chose are: Rme fireface 400 or babyface blue (still cant decide) Novation 61 sl mkii midi controller Yamaha hs80m studio reference monitors MXL V67G or Studio Projects B1 or RODE NT1-A or Samson C03 ( so confused to choose between any of these mics) Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro or Sennheiser HD650 or Akg k702 (opened back headphones for recording.editing) Shure SRH840 or Sony 7509HD (closed-back for vocal mixing). so guys do u think this gear would do the job neatly in class or am i missing something? Would i still need an external preamps or would the built-in preamps in the ff 400 do the job in class? would the AD/DA converters in the ff 400 be enough? would i need an external compressor? or an effects device? any recommendations would be much much appreciated guys please PS: im willing to pay $3500-4000 and im using a PC and my room is acoustically treated.
