Well, I have some money (about 1k) not much, but enough to buy some upgrades. Here is my current setup, let me know what you guys think the weak links are, and hopefully some suggestions for replacement. Computer: MacBook Pro, 4GB RAM, Solid state hard drive, etc. Interface: Presonus FirePod Preamp: Aphex 107 with the tube upgrade Mics: SM57, MXL 990/991. The MXL mics are the first things up for the upgrade of course. Thinking of getting a C414 and a pair of NT5's. Throw out other options if you have them! I recently have taken a liking to some of the Rode large condenser mics also. I work with a lot of acoustic artists and instruments, and I figured the C414 is a great multi purpose mic. Vocals and acoustic instruments come through great on them. The NT5's would be used for stereo micing instruments and overheads. So, throw out any opinions on my setup and upgrade options! I've been doing a lot of research on stuff but thought it would be interesting to open up a discussion where you guys can argue. Let me know if I'm missing anything in my list. Thanks!
