Hi all, New to recording.org here so if I missed a link im sorry. Ok, heres the deal, We are ready to open a new studio and we are stoked about it. We found the building, we have all our software and alot of the hardware. The main concern we are running into now is picking out the proper mics. We are on a $5000.00 budget and granted it would be nice to stay below that, but we know that once you start sacrificing quality it will begin to show in your projects. I know that $5000.00 cant buy all the top notch gear but could get us a good start on maybe even semi-pro gear. What would be your suggestions? We are also going to be upgrading the monitors soon enough what do you have for me in this category? We currently have Auralex putting together studio foam packages for us so we can tune these rooms properly. We hope to be open by the 1st of the year if not sooner. Any feedback would be appreciated.
