Looking to Upgrade.. Mic? Pre? Comp?
I'm looking to upgrade my main signal chain right now.
Currently, all I'm using is
MXL990/SM57 > Presonus Firestudio Project
I don't have any outboard gear or anything.
I'm essentially looking to upgrade my sound, because it definitely has room for upgrade, I know.
I hate my mic, and I hate my pres, and I would love to get light compression going into my computer.
I'm looking to spend less than $1000.
Should I do a minor upgrade and just get a better mic, an outboard pre and compressor?
Or should I just upgrade one piece of equipment with something nice?
