OK OK So I'm moving on to better pres. Yes, we're also upgrading (read:building) "real" recording rooms. With fine acoustics.
I associated the pres with mics were going to use on purpose. You then might understand my needs. Our budget is 5000.
So here we go:
1. A Designs MP-2A: Bass drums (d6, subkick) / bass guitars (di)
2. Toft Audio ATC-2: Toms (md 421)
3. Chameleon Labs: Snare top (sm57) / guitars (e609) / vocals (at4040, gt-66 etc)
4. Sytek MPX-4ii: Overheads (mk-012) + Snare under (e609) + Floor tom (beta 52)
Sounds good? Sounds awful? Tell me !
