Afters hours and hours spent reading all kinds of conflicting and indecisive material, and asking Wrong Robot millions of questions, I've decided to come to the TalkBass gods. I have a lot of questions, so here we go. I want to spend as little money as possible to put together a good studio that is capable of recording good tracks. I want to be able to release home made CDs of my music. So I'll make a list of things I have, and things I want and why I think they might come in handy. Things I have: -Fostex MR8(which isn't getting much use) -Behringer UB1202 -Sony Vaio with 126mb of RAM, 13 Gigs, a Pentium III and 2 PC card slots -1 DRVX1 Audio-Technica, 1 DRVX2 Audio-Technica, and 2 Nady SP1 mics (all Dynamic mics) -one live wire XLR-1/4 -2 cheapy XLR-XLR -1 Monster Instrument cable, 20 feet -3 cheapy instrument cables 20 feet -two 1/8-1/4 adapters -two 1/4-1/8 adapters Stuff I want: - condenser mic even though I'm not quite sure what it does - more good cables, cause the cheaps ones cut out - Line 6 PODXT amp modeler with effects, for getting good guitar tones directly to the computer. -boom mic stands for micing amps and the drum set -some monitors for reviewing my mixes -some kind of DI box so that im not going through the headphone jack on the laptop. - Some PC cards of RAM and anything else i can add, what can i put in place of the removable floppy drive? -an external hardrive for more storage any ideas, tips, anything, is appreciated. I'm looking to spend somewhere under a thousand.
