Guys we've gone astray.
The original thread stated set ups below $7000 let's stretch to $10k at most.
But I'm seeing V-Synths $3k and multiple preamps where even 2 lower ones hits $1500

Not counting the computer itself what are people doing for below $7000

The Tampa sounds good. I thought about getting one but wasnt sure how it sounded. Are there any "mods" that can be donw to it at all? Either or the recording sounds good to me.

Very nice work! Especially the first track. The last 2 are distorting, the low end completely disappears on the last one when everything comes in and the transients hit. Maybe a limiter issue? Anyway nice non-low budget sound from a not so expensive rig (the nice mics do help!).

Thanks. I'm pretty new to this m'larky so any feedback is welcome!

I've been using the Oktava MK-319 more for vocals these days which I prefer to the Studio Projects B1.

Have you checked out the Michael Joly mod for the MK-319? His work is amazing, I'm gonna have him do a pair of MXL 603s with his KM 184 killer mod. I've heard his a/bs and some independent ones, absolutely stunning!

Thanks much for the kind words, that first track is actually the only final mix of any of those, I have finals of the others on my desktop computer, but I never put that one online, so whatever's on this laptop is what makes it into post I think on those the limiter was just slamming a bit hard.

These are a few rough mixes from the next album...

I just created this player and page specifically for this post - haha
The Silence Kit

I'm definitely no pro and this is definitely a low-end set up but it does the trick really well for me. I just like recording my band b/c I like being able to spend a lot more time on my recordings to get something closer to what I want. Plus recording in general is fun to me so I get to record my friends' bands which is a good time...

Interface:
EMU 1212m (with: MIDI, ADAT and S/PDIF i/o)

Pre-amps:
MOTU 8 Pre - drum tracking
ART Digital MPA - tracking pretty much everything else

Mics:
(1) AKG c2000b - room on most songs
(1) AKG d112 - kick
(2) Audio Technica AT4040 - overheads
(1) Oktava MK-319 - room on a couple songs, backing vocals
(2) Sennheiser MD421 - rack toms, electric guitar
(1) Shure Beta 57A snare (side or top)
(2) Shure sm57 - snare (side or bottom)
(3) Shure sm58 - high hat
(1) Shure sm7 - floor tom, lead vocals, bass cabinet

Mine's very primitive. Shure PG56, PG52 and PG81s, into a Peavey PV14. I'm upgrading all of my mics eventually to C1000s, D112 and '57s, soon (pretty soon) I'm getting an ESI1808 and linking it up to the (EFX send) outs of each eight channels.
