Hello everyone, after frequenting these forums for some time now, I've finally decided to register and throw some posts up. I've read a ton of posts in this forum and have seen how helpful you guys have been.....I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I started out in the hip-hop realm making beats and recording local artists. I never really expanded/upgraded my equipment as there wasn't enough revenue to support it. I left the studio and for the past two years I've been running live. This has given me the oppurtunity to market myself and I'm currently rebuilding/upograding my current facilities. To make a long story short, I was wondering if the following list is a good start for a mulit-track setup and if you'd recommend changing any of these peices. Here's the breakdown of what I'm adding on to my G4 setup (running a Soundcraft 328XD as well)... Upgrade to Logic Pro 7 Upgrade AI to an RME Fireface TC Powercore Focusrite ISA 428 Soundelux iFet7 Presonus Digimax Seeing as I can fully run an live 8-piece band with no problems, I have plenty of NT's, 57's, e304's, etc to use. My main concern is a good front end. I was just wondering if the above list could be modified in any way in your opinion. (ie, should I scrap the Digimax and use the pre's on the Soundcraft?) Any advice is greatly appreciated.
