    GUYS PLEASE HELP. Im sure your answers will help 100's o others out there too.

    I got a budget of 6K GBP ($12k) if i make use of interest free cred. I want to make some vocal recs of Indian Classical. (you can get an idea of voice on http://www.londonsiva.com recorded on AKG c414). I dig the vocal sound of Pete Gabriel's SOand he used a tube 47. SO, I figure I should get a tube 47 copy. I heard soundelux 47 is the closest but I havent tried one.
    Q1) HOW DOES SOUNDELUX 47 COMPARE WITH AN ORIGINAL tube 47

    the Best mic I tried was the BLUE CACTUS
    Q2) HOW DOES CACTUS COMPARE WITH THE OTHER TWO

    Now, I'm gonna need a pre and I think tubes might be the way. I heard the Sebatron vmp 2000 is good and cheap. But I'm willing to go up to 2K GBP if the sound gets better (ON VOCAL that is- I aint triyin to run an all round studio)

    Q3) WHAT PRE GOES best WITH THE tube 47 ???

    And just to prove im the ultimate new rookie, I need a converter too. I guess the quality of the conversion will be the more crucial factor , so I'm willing to pick the software to suit the converter rather than vice versa. I realise it might not sound like 2inch tape, but I want to get as close as pos.

    Q4) Which 2k converter is gonna give me the closest thing possible to real analog sound?? and what software works best with it. (yes I can run off a mac)

    Thaks guys 4 your precious time. I'll remeber you if I get famous. (If I dont get famous, U wont remember me so it wont matter.)

    om
