Hi All, I have just about got my home studio to a stage where I can begin doing some good recording, but am still missing a vital link...mics. I'm prob. going to get a couple of SM57s, but need some help with what other mics will go well, and are not too expensive. (I guess I am aiming at mainly band type recording but also small classical type ensembles as well) The 1st mic I was looking at getting was the Rode NT1-A. I was going to also purchace an 'ART Tube MP - OPL' preamp to go with it. What do people think about this equipment??? Would you suggest anything else???? All help greatly appreciated!!! Thanks heaps!
