hello all! just discovered this amazing site through the usergroups at the "nuendo"site-congratulations, i think and hope that this will proceed as sucessfully as it did during the few months since it's up and running! with great interest i follow the discussions and topics, and it's good to see that there so many people in the recording-business who care about quality of sound. it's especially interesting from me because i come from the other side of the story-i just to work in the high-end-business for a long time, have experiences with all what's good (and mostly expensive), and therefore i value and appreciate good recordings. since a while, i'm thinking to do my first steps into doing recordings myself. i would like to do "puristic" stereophonic recordings of small classical as well as jazz-ensembles, so what i need is "just" a good pair of very good mics and an adequate preamp/ad-converter, and, of course, a daw or a digital recorder. now, it would be kind if you all could give me some recommendations about this stuff, and, during my longterm involvement with the finest gear money can buy, you can imagine that i'm VERY PICKY about soundquality. however, i don't want to spend much money on a-let's say-dcs-converter (which are also well respected in the audiophile community), dwfearn preamp and a manley (ditto) mic, because, like i said, i'm a starter and have already spent a huge sum for my listeningchain. i did some dd on my own, and thinking about an "andi pro" from mindprint and a pair of Neumanns or brauner "valvets"...?! any comments, researchtips, literature about stereophonic miking as well as other help is appreciated! thx very much in advance.
