Alright, well I have been lurking for quite a long time now and have taken in as much information as my little brain can handle. Here is my story. I am doing voice over and imaging work, but want to start doing it out my house. I own a Shure SM7 mic which is what I will be using. My computer is ready to go with AA 1.5, all I need to get is the m-audio 2496 for that. My question, which I have read posts but haven't gotten a straight answer, is do I buy the DMP3 mic preamp, or do I get the Yamaha mg10/2. Now, the only thing that will be going into my computer is my voice, but I want it to have some warmth to it. I won't have anything else going into the computer, all sound effects and what not are already there. Will the DMP3 give me better mic sound then the Yamaha? I would like a board for monitoring purposes, but that can be worked around so its not a big deal, my voices sound is my main concern. Thanks for the help!
