    Your options are very wide and complex if its about learning sound engineering. My first question would ask: You are wanting to set up a studio to learn about what? Home recording or an actual studio?
    You could start with a preamp/channel strip combo or more likely get a converter with pre's build in.
    What about the room, sound treatment, monitoring?

    this sounds like its a question on a test for an audio course.

    first we need a definition of what "all good studios" means ???? also what is a "mid to high" budget?

    if you mean a major recording studio with an LFC and large recording spaces for orchestras or is it a studio for tracking POP music? the requirements are very different. didn't your instructor already go through this with you?

    Although it's a complex question with many possible answers, I'm going to give a simple, and not necessarily correct, answer based on my own experience and preference.

    Dw fearn- vt-2 high end
    Neve 1073- pro standard
    Focusrite isa- pro budget
    Audient mico- prosumer
    Art pro vla- low budget

    Neve is probably the most ubiquitous among "good studios", doesn't make it the best, just very common.
