Hi there, I'm looking to build a setup for use both at home initially (vocals, acoustic guitar, bass, keys, percussion) and subsequently a fuller band with electric guitar + drums. Eventually recording live. I've included as much info as I can for you! My proposed setup is as follows: Custom built PC from http:// Case - PaQ 4U-550 + PSU (Seasonic S-12 430 OEM) - this is a custom silent DAW setup, rackmounted Motherboard - Intel DP35DPM CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q-6600 Cooler -Thermalright XP-120 + 140mm Fan and Exhaust Duct RAM - 2 x 2GB Corsair XMS2 PC6400 (800Mhz Cas 5) Graphics Card - GigaByte 8400 GS HD - 2 x 640GB WD SE16, SATA II, 7200 rpm Pioneer DVR-215BK Black 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer DVD XP Home Pro Tools M Powered Pro Tools Music Production Toolkit (plugins etc) M Audio Profire 2626 (A/D, preamps, MIDI etc) AT4033 carioid Condenser (vocals) Stereo matched pair Rode NT55 condenser (omni/cardioid for acoustic guitar + anything else e.g. drum overheads) Sony MDR 7509 headphones (closed for monitoring but also mixing in the evening when small kids in bed! -I'm aware of the limitations!) I already have SM57 + SM58s, stands, cables etc. Studio Monitors to follow - ideas please? I'm at a loss here. Say £250? Also not sure on acoustic treatment for a 12' by 8' room? Cheap and preferably white please! (Will help keep the peace with my wife if subtle!). Also, I picked the AT4033 as it seems to have reviews that consistently place it above, say, the AT4050 for vocals. Though I realise it's not so flexible (cardioid only). How would this compare to the NT55s for miking acoustic guitar? I hope that's comprehensive enough. All comments/ alternatives/ omissions/ challenges welcome! Many thanks.
