    Hey guys,

    Im new to the forum and have been searching around for a decent recording forum around here and i think i might have found one. I am pretty big into home recording and recently purchased some stuff for my band to record a demo

    Presonus - firepod

    Studio Projects - Pre amp

    Shure drum mic pack - 3 Sm 57's and one beta 52a

    I am using adobe audition 3 also

    I think this is pretty much all i need we also have a line 6 flextone 3 to work with along with a behringer v-amp.

    Hey I would upgrade to a different type of mics too. Behringer is cheap and wouldnt do a great job for you to. Try the shure mics sm-57s. They just like the sm-58s but cheaper and they do a much better job.

    Good headphones are better sell them for 80 on ebay. I just sold mine for 89. I upgraded to a hs80m, but seriously good sennheisers or akg will do you better

    Dont' worry about upgrading yet, make a demo and take the time to learn how to make it better next time. Rome wasn't built in a day.

    thanks. We are re-recording all those songs with the new gear. I think i can get a "big" sound from the shure drum pack. Also I have been working on getting a nice guitar sound. I am definetly going to spend a lot of time on mic placement and eq'ing.
