    Hi, you may have seen me post in the Pro Audio Forum, but I'm back here.

    Anyway, I'm trying to have a set-up to practice recording/mixing for as cheaply as possible and need some help on microphone suggestions. The tone I would like to eventually attain would be that punchy nu-metal, stoner rock, or blues like sound.

    Here's what I have:

    Motu 896 + Digimax LT + Furman Power Condition + Patchbay + Rack = Just got this off of ebay for about 1400..

    Mackie HR-824 Pair

    Boston Acoustic PC system

    Sure PE-56

    What I will be getting:

    UAD-1 Ultra Pack

    4x SM57 = 370

    3x E 604 mics - 300

    1 x E602 mic - 200

    AT4040 - 200

    What I was considering:

    ART MDM-8 Limiter (Insterting between Digimax and Motu while tracking for hot levels and avoiding clipping)

    Groove Tubes GT-57 - 419

    Nady RSM-2 - 200

    2x KEL HM-1 - 200

    A Vocal Mic and Dum OH/Room mic would be helpful as well as any other suggestions.

    You have 650 to work with...

    I plan to spend an additional 1K on a room and the extranious (Cables, stands, etc), FYI

    Anyone ever use a GT-57?

    Thanks

    - kelly
