Analog to Digital
I run a mic (I forget the make/model at the moment) straight into a AudioBox USB 96 (which provides phantom power to the mic), and use Studio One Artist (i.e. the cheap version) as my DAW. Looking at Ken's PRO videos on doing "how to record vocals", I see he goes through an analog pre-amp, EQ, and compressor (all analog I guess??) before going digital. All of that (amp, EQ, compressor) can be done digitally in the DAW after the "raw" vocal is recorded. Any recommendations on what should be done to the signal before it's digitized and recorded, vs. afterwards?
