    I am not using a computer to do/learn voice recording.
    I have an AT 2020 Mic and shock mount. Sterling PF1 pop filter. A mackie 402-vlz3 mixer and a Marantz PMD661 recorder.

    I can edit the result in soundbooth cs4 , but I am trying to get the initial setup as good as possible.

    I live in Providence road island if there is anyone willing to come by and help me for $$$ for about 2 hours.

    Or can you direct me to reading info on using this type of gear?

    Thank you in advance

    Why are you even using the Mackie for this? Go straight into the PMD661. Adjust the input control so that the loudest your voice shows on the meter is about 2/3's of the scale. Go to it. If you want to improve the signal chain then send it to Doug Oade for modification.
