Recording Chain Upgrade Help
I'm after some help here. I want to upgrade my main vocal recording chain/main recording chain in general. My current rig includes a Digidesign Digi002 and Presonus Digimax D8 for an extra 8 inputs. For mics I own an AT2020, AT2021, 2 AT3031's, 3 SM57's, Beta 52A and Audix I5.
I'm looking into buying a new preamp and vocal mic. For the Preamp I've been considering either the Golden Age Pre73 or the Alctron MP100 (re-branded Universal Audio 710). Both are around the same price $350.
For the microphone i really have no idea what to get, so many people recommend the ShureSM7B but I am unsure whether I want a dynamic or condenser.
I would like help mainly on the mic choice. I want a mic I can use on a variety of vocals both male and female and can also be used to record acoustic guitar. I'm happy for either a tube mic or normal condenser type as well.
My price range for preamp suggestions would be some where in the $300-$500 mark, possibly a bit more if dual channel pres are advised. And for the microphone, somewhere around $500.
Please also take note that I live in Australia and so things are more expensive here, though I am more then happy to buy from America.
If you need any other information please just ask.
Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks guys!
