Hello to All! I've recently come into a little bit of money to put a home studio together and wanted to get some input as to whether or not the system I'm considering will suffice for what I'm trying to do. Basically, I'm going to be recording vocals (male & female), recording guitar, as well as keyboards... I'll track drums at a large pro studio and import the .wav files back into the DAW I'm using, so I just need a great audio chain that will cover the instruments I've listed and voices. I don't have much money for mics so I'm looking at two or three good ones to get me started with vocals and guitars. The room to be used for recording is in the basement of my apartment, so I can't modify it that much. I'll plan to use about $2-3K to treat the room, though (Auralex foam, etc)... The material recorded varies greatly from electronica to rock to acid jazz to house to hip-hop... Here's what I'm looking at buying: Lawson Mic Combo (L251 Tube & L47FET) AKG C414 B-XL II SM57's (2) UA 6176 Channel Strip Vintech X73 Chandler TG-2 Great River MP-2NV Lynx 2 Card (6 in's & 2 out's) Creation Station PC Rack (from Sweetwater) UAD-1 Ultrapak DSP Card Presonus Central Station w/remote Dynaudio BM15a's Please let me know if this sounds like a good setup to start with... Any suggestions, alternative options or other recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!!!!
