Hey, thanks for taking the time to help me, I own a Fostex Mr-8 HD, a Pod xt and Sony Audio Studio. My friend and I want to buy some mics, for drums and vocals, and maybe for acoustic guitar. Also, (I know, its horrible) we mix with headphones. Do we need monitors, or should we get a quality pair of headphones. Now, for the mics, are there any mics I could use for vocals, drums and acoustics, we're thinking about the sm57, and a inexpensive condenser. Any suggestions, our budget is about 200-300. Thanks.
