    Hello. Im trying to set up my personal home studio. Mostly for solo recording. Im looking for suggestions on how to set it up to its best potential. I have the following gear.

    - Digidesign M-Box
    - MXL 2001 Condensor Mic
    - Sennheiser Mixing Headphones
    - Behringer UB1202 Mixer
    - Presonus Mic Pre

    Please suggest ways i could chain these items together for the best quality and add any other items into the mix that you guys think would make it better. Thanks.

    - Mike

    You should buy a decent set of studio monitors, headphones are generally a bad idea when mixing.

    Hi mikey,

    I'd suggest using the presonus mic pre with your mics when tracking rather than the mixer . . . the presonus mic pre is probably
    considerably better than the preamp thrown into that mixer.
    Of course if you're tracking a drum set and need plenty of mics at
    once then of course the mix will be needed.

    Also, the mixer will be handy for using as a volume control for your monitors while listening back and during mixing.
