The Home Studio Thread!
What do you guys use? Daws Preamps Interfaces Mics Acoustic treatments Favourite plugins. Headphones Monitors I'll go first. Daw=Logic Pro X Interface= Focusrite Scarlett 2 input Mic= rhode Nt1 and a shure 57 Preamp= can't justify with $200 mic and $150 dollar interface Acoustic treatment = don't even have a pop filter, gotta be extra careful on those consonants hahaha Plugins= whatever came with logic + some cool starter kits from toontrack Headphones= AKG k171's... Closest thing I've got that is anywhere near industry standard Monitors= cheap pair of Fostex that are at least 7 years old. But... I've been thinking about upgrading my home studio situation and I had an avalanche type situation... Good Mic needs a good Audio interface needs a good acoustic environment. So things I have been looking at are... BabyFace blue by RME which is an interface that may justify a preamp such as the Focustire ISA one classic. This interface would also justify a good Mic... so I was checking out the c414 XLII as they seem to get very positive reviews and seemingly can be stuck on any acoustic instrument and get dynamite results. If I was going to go pure vocal microphone and get a little more expensive I'd be tempted by the Nuemann TLM 103. Now all this would be pretty cool but I'd need some sort acoustic treatment. Does anyone have any experience with DIY portable vocal Boooths or even commercial products like this... http://www.amazon.com/CAD-Audio-AS32-Acousti-Shield-Enclosure/dp/B006YTZOOS/ref=sr_1_2?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1432375932&sr=1-2&keywords=portable+vocal+booth @highmtn @philmaher At anyone who wants to join the conversation
