    My wife sings. Alot. For Christmas i'd like to buy her a unit that will allow her to record herself on a CD in clear pro-audio. Something nice.

    She sings solo every Sunday in front of about 4,000 people and she likes to practice at home. Recording herself would be great for her practice.

    I have no idea whats out there nor am I familiar w/ the differnt platforms that are out there. Ex: better to do this through the computer and software. A seperate unit outside of the computer....I have no clue.

    Obvious i'm not looking for production quality, but something clean and crisp would be nice.

    Any suggestions? :wink:

    You really need to tell people what your budget is.
    That would be helpful to someone to give you idea's.

    Cost is a big factor.........What's not expensive to one , will be very expensive to another.

    What kind of ranges are we talking about?

    Obvioulsy price is a concern, but it's not the most important factor.

    Companies like DBX, Symetrix and others make a stand alone vocal processor, for under $300 US. It includes the microphone preamp, high pass filter, de-esser, compressor, limiter, equalizer, phantom power. Just plug it into a standalone CD recorder (approximately $200 to $600) and she will give you a much better time in bed.
