i wish to buy an audio interface of the brand motu 896 hd. we donot have a proper studio setup but still want to record our guitar parts(amp modelers) , bass(amp modelers) , keyboards(through usb) and vocals(?). we know that with our setup its difficult to get good results through mic recording but we don't have another choice. let me give u some detail about the perimeters of the room in which we intend to record. 1.width=9feet aprox 2. length = 15feet aprox 3. height = 9feet aprox 4. the room has no double walls 5. the walls are covered with thick insulating foam about 3inch thick. 6. it has one window which has glass totally fixed i.e it can not be opened. 7. room has two doors, one enterance and one leading into the bathroom. (we are experiencing problems with sound we record or hear, boom is the factor, in short. the bathroom close to the room) the audio interface we are going to buy is motu 896 hd. is this a suitable audio interface. we are not doing all this just for fun but also to earn through this profession so we want to buy the stuff that can assist us as long as possible. we intend to record most of the stuff our selves , primarily because we cannot afford the expense of a professional studio. you can see that we r compromising on almost everything but still suggest us also where we shouldnt do so. which is the best suitable mic for vocals and acoustic guitar recording. NOTE -does an expensive mic can make a difference despite recording in the above stated environment .
