Hi everyone, I've been scraping for quite some time, and think I can finally afford something nice. All I own right now is my DAW (based on the MOTU 828mkII) and a Shure KSM27 (which loves my voice), a SM57 and a Beta 52, besides other instrument related gear. All I'll be recording is electric and acoustic guitar, drums, bass and voice. The style is mostly something on the softer side of rock, lots of clean electric and acoustic. I've been thinking of getting a couple mic pres (and limiters to go with them) - 4ch total - and a pair of small diaphragm condensers, for the acoustic (I don't like the KSM27 on my Larrivee). The problem is that I live in Brazil, and the import taxes are astronomical (close to 80%). The only store I know that I can get away with lower taxes is B&H Photo Video, so it would be better if I could get most stuff from them (they have a special import method). With that in mind, I have the following ideas: Pres: - Focusrite Red 8 + DBX1066 or 166XL - Langevin Dual Vocal Combo I'm thinking of getting both units. If the Focusrite stuff is versatile enough, I could get the ISA428 (4-ch) and save quite a bundle. For the mics, I thought of Rode NT5's or Shure SM-81's (for the acoustic guitar). What do you think? Thanks.
