$3000 to spend AKG414 / dbx - what to upgrade?
I have $3000 (maybe a little more) that I'm going to use to upgrade my mic or preamp...or both. Considering that I have the following, what would you recommend I upgrade, and to what?
KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A Mic THAT WILL BE USED 95% FOR RAP!
Basically, how will I see the greatest improvement in my ending vocal sound?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
Here is the booth (for your acoustic treatment viewing).
Get yourself an SM7 and a Heil PR35 and a good mono or duo channel pre. Throw in an Ashly CLX52 and game on.
la-610 and tlm 103
and make sure you participate in the recording.org ADL 600 giveaway that's worth $2200.00! Win that and it will solve a BIG hole.
haha no doubt
Get a new mic and mail me your AKG if you don't like it :)
I want one of those AKG C414s.
SM7b times 2. UAD card...
+3-Sm7. Avalon pre's get alot of mention in the hip-hip/R&B interveiws i see. Emprical Labs' Distressor does to, although usually in the mix faze.
