Question on audio interfaces, please help!
Hey Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is my first post on Gearslutz, so first off thanks for having me.
I am trying to set up a home recording studio primarily for voice over work as well as ADR for film. I also am relatively clueless when it comes to audio gear, so I was hoping you guys could help me out.
The mic I'll be using is a Sennheiser MKH 416, and I will be purchasing either a Macbook Pro or an iMac. The only part of the equation that I have no idea on is everything between those two objects.
I also own a used (but in good condition) Shure FP42 mixer which I purchased for use on film shoots to run the 416 and two lav mics into a Zoom H4n. I don't know if this would be useful for my set up, or if it would just be unnecessary.
I'm looking to spend $300-$500. Would this be enough to fully utilize the capabilities of the 416?
Thank you so much! Sorry if this is a bit of an open-ended question, I know very little in this area and I truly appreciate any amount of help and/or insight on this!
