    I have an mbox and a digi 002. Wanted opinions on two things:

    1.) Do you recommend using a mic pre, or using factory Focusrite pres?

    2.) Best mic between:

    a.) Rode NT1000, Studio Projects C1 and TB1.
    b.) Rode NTK, Blue Baby Bottle, Shure KSM32

    Thanks for the help, if I can achieve a great sound with set a I would like to minimize the money. But, if ultimately i need to go higher what would be the best between the second set.

    The factory pres in that box are usable..nothing to get excited about...all of the mics you've listed do things well and the main difference would be price point and pattern variations..

    a great pre will make all of them perform better while the stock pres will show little difference at all
