    While I"m just a working man who enjoys writing and recording my own music in my spare time like a lot of other people I"m forced to keep my hobbie cost as low as I can. Although my equipment produces good recordings I know they could be better. At the lowest cost to me can you suggest where I could make the biggest improvement? Can you give me product names and prices? This is a list of my equipment. [ Boss BR-864, DBX mini-pre, CAD M-179 mike, Audix OM 2 mike, Edirol MA 10A monitors,Sony RCD-W500 disk recorder, Roland GR-20 guitar synth. Ibanez guitar,Koss headphones. While I like and play all types of music most of my recordings are easy going. ie: Eagels. Van Morrison ect. thanks. Tom

    Monitoring. No question. Get some nice full range monitors or nice HiFi stuff (B&W 602's are a favorite of mine - A pair and a decent amp can run you under $1,000 new).

    At the very least, maybe a pair of M-Audio BX8's?

    The point is, no matter what gear you have - The better you can hear it, the better you can use it.

    Thanks for the info on the monitors. I know there weak but you get what you can afford, but I will improve on then. By the way, can you tell me what you think about the ART tube mike pre-amp and comp. model 131 ? I was reading the specks on it and it looks good but I would like some input from you are someone who has used this piece. I"m glad I found this web site to get input on all types of equipment from other people who have experence with them. I just wish I"d found it a lone time ago. Thanks again!

    I don't like ART preamps. I had one and it made everything in my rack hum.

    The presonus tube is OK for cheap stuff.
