Need Some New Gear Advice.
What's up everyone.
This is pretty much my first posting to GS, but I have been following and spending countless hours here. Definitely a very knowledgeable place.
I have a setup right now, separate mix room, and recording room, both acoustically treated well. My gear list is decent, Event Monitors, Eureka Preamp, Tlm 49,103, FW410, etc. I record primarily vocals and guitar, with occasional percussion. I'm looking to take my setup to the next level, and try to really reach that sound, that tight commercial RnB sound, in terms of vocals. I was thinking about a RME FF800, SSL ALPHA Channel or LA610 or 6176, Central Station. Would the converters on the FF suffice, or should I save up and shell out more for an external converter?
Also, any decor ideas would help too! I'm trying to really create a laid back, chill environment, suggestions on lighting and decor will be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance!
