Hello everyone, Just stumbling across this site, I am half tempted to make it my new Homepage. I did a search and came up empty so I apologize if it is a cross post. I also apologize as I am not sure exactly where this question fit with the vast topic choices. So: I am in the prep stage for doing a recording for a local acapella group. I am going to be running Sonar + PreSonus FireStudio. The dilema I am having is about mic's. I have access to a MXL 909 Condenser, and an Audix VX5. Which would be better? I know neither are the best mic's and I am on a budget (which is why I posted in this form). I own both mic's but if neither one will do the trick based on previous experience from anyone on the forums, then I am willing to get an other mic to add to my closet. Though if one of these two will do the trick, I would rather do it for now and save my credit card the hurt. Just some background on how the recording will be done to help with the microphone application question: The way the group wants to record and I think its a good idea, is they will record dirty tracks for all the songs, and then do vocal dubbing 1 by 1 using the dirty track as the reference track until they have the complete song and all the parts. Many thanks ahead of time!
