Opinion on Set-UP - Microphone and PreAmp

Hello,

I was thinking of upgrading my current setup. I currently own a AKG Preception 200 Microphone, that goes through a M-Audio MobilePre USB preamp.

I was looking into getting a RODE NTK. If I do that, I wont have money for a new preamp...

My question is, with recording quality rap/hip-hop vocals... Will RODE NTK, work well with a M-Audio MobilePre USB preamp.?

Thank you for your time,

For rap, I'm a performance guy. Why take a kid that has never been anywhere but on a "stage" and stick him in front of a big ass condenser? Give him a 58 (or similar) and let him rip.

I was hoping to get an answer to my question, lol... I appreciate your thoughts... but can someone answer if the preamp will work well with the NTK.?

Any preamp will work well with an NTK. The question is why do you think you need the NTK in the first place. Perhaps you should skip the NTK and buy a pre. Perhaps you should try my suggestion. My point was that it seems you are expecting too much from a mic when at your gear level it might be better to try some different techniques instead.

Okay fair enough... any chance you can give me your msn or aim addy, and I will explain my situation further... and maybe you can recommend based on that?

I'll give it a shot. It's still just an opinion though and YMMV. PM me your AIM ID and I'll add you (I use gtalk and don't think it likes the other direction).
