Hello to all,
Just wanted to run this by people to gauge if I have a reasonable setup for recording acoustic guitar and vocals, and what might be done to improve upon it.
Currently running a mic through an A&H Xone 32 dj mixer, which has a dedicated mic XLR input, then running this through a Traktor Audio 8 soundcard.
Have just bought a Rode NT1-A, although may have made a mistake, thinking it can run on batteries, (and I can't imagine the xone 32 has phantom power). Can anyone clarify if it takes batteries? If not, how best to get a phantom power source to the mic?
As you can tell, I am utilising my dj setup for recording acoustic stuff. I realise the quality of the mic is open to interpretation, but the setup as a whole is what I am looking to get feedback on. Am thinking about putting a drape on a big wall in the front room to minimise echo for the condensor mic.
Any advice or pointers massively welcome, cheers guys n gals.
