I would really appreciate some suggestions or opinions regarding preamps (and good mics to match with) mentioned above. I'm (or try to be) a VO "talent"and make a radio/TV commercials as well as corporate multimedia projects for living. Right now my main "tools" are PB 667 DVI/PT 5.2LE/MBox with AT 3035 mic/pair of Tapcos S5 monitors (and pretty quiet bedroom "studio"). I'm satisfied with that combo but, since I received some good paychecks lately ,it's time to invest some money. I would like to raise the quality of production to higher level and think that I should move toward better preamp and mic first. So, after searching through the Web, knowing the fact that I want to produce a better quality voiceovers and have a cca 1.000$ budget , my "wish" list consist of Focusrite VoicemasterPro, Grace 101 and FNR RNP. Also I was thinking about RODE NT2 mic to match. Am I move in riht direction or ...? My apologies for such a long post and thanks in advance.
