Speakers or DAC what to upgrade next (1k budget)

I'm thinking of what my next move should be as far as putting my new basic rig together, besides the seemingly endless computer parts. right now I'm rocking an Avid eleven, and Focusrite scarlett solo interfaces, and Alesis monitor one speakers, with an avantone on the shortlist, and a Bose home theater, and various Bluetooth and computer speakers.

Blue Yeti Advice on a Budget?

Hi everyone! I'm very new to recording and currently have a blue yeti microphone. I record grand piano and female vocals, and I know I should probably update to an actual interface and XLR mic with two large (or small, depending on the desired result) diaphragm mics for the piano, but that would mean changing my entire setup and shelling out a lot of cash.

Newbie Alert! Have a computer, a sizable budget, and...

I'm not finding much in reviews, The odd posting about failures and the odd posting about the dbx preamps having a limited range on the gain controls ...

Kmetal's new mid/budget level computer.

hey all! I'm very excited about this so I figured I'd share! I created another thread a while back specing out some top level stuff, don't worry it's still coming... As life would have it what I thought was $800 in car repairs, was actually a totaled '03 Honda Civic instead. I'm obviously not a mechanic lol. So long story short my 15k setup is going towards a car.

Advice on adding mic/instr preamps to my studio rack on a budget


I have a small semi-portable studio rack system which I use to record my own music as well as band sessions. My gear includes an ART Dual MP preamp box which gives me two decent mic/instr preamps that works well for certain mics and instruments, but I frequently need a few more preamps. Right now, I fall back on my Zoom R16 channel amps, but I'd like a better option.
