Recording equipment advise, what to save for?
i thought i'd post to try to get some suggestions on what to save for in my next couple pro audio purchases. i record mainly rock (recent projects can be heard at http://www.myspace.com/thesceneaesthetic and http://www.myspace.com/lastdaystanding). i'm currently working with the following gear:
-groove tubes brick
-chameleon labs 7602
-Shure sm57 (3)
-studio projects c4 matched pair
thats my humble list of gear. i've been leaning towards a couple things for my next purchases, including a digi002 mod from black lion audio (http://www.blacklionaudio.com) and the music production toolkit from Digidesign to increase my track count to 48.
any suggestions are greatly appreciated and will help me out a ton. slowly but surely i hope to develop my studio into a well rounded place that can cater to lots of different kinds of genre's and projects. thanks in advance!
Maybe an API A2D, whcih would give you a great preamp and converter...
You might also want to consider a good compressor like an 1176 or Distressor.
The possibilities are endless.
