hey everyone, I have decided to take the plunge and open a studio. I have a few pieces of decent gear that have got me along up to this point but have been looking at gear purchases to put me into a much more pro class of gear and sound results. Here is my current setup: *Sonar 4 PE *Tascam FW-1884 *dbx 166xl *Focusrite Twin Track Pro *KRK Rockit 5's *Behringer 4 ch headphone amp *Audix Fusion drum mic kit *Groove Tubes GT66 condensor *(2) Shure SM57's *Sennheiser e609 *AKG C3000b Here is what I'm looking at purchasing. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for alternative gear or if there is anything I'm missing. Do you think this would be a great setup? *JLM Audio TMP8 preamp - $2,140 *Apogee Rosetta 800 - $2,700 *Sonica Audio X2a PC (w/ Sonar 5 Producer) - $2,473 *AKG C451b matched pair - $1,200 *Audix D6 - $200 *Soundelux u195 - $1,095 *Auralex (various packages) - $2,000 *Sony MDR 7506 headphones (3) -$300 *Dynaudio BM6a's - $1,700 = $13,808 Here is my question, should I get two Focusrite ISA 428's w/ the A/D Card ($4,000) instead of the JLM TMP8/Apogee Rosetta combo? I also feel I would need a UPS/power conditioner. Any good suggestions on these? Should I be looking at the Event Studio Precision 8's instead of the Dynaudio's? And what about a patch bay? Will that be necessary for me? Anything I'm missing? I feel like this gear would give me a great start at some great sounding recordings. thanks for your help!
