VO Chain upgrade - Help Needed.

Hi, I´m thinking some upgrade to my Voice-over work chain.
I´m currently using THE T.BONE SCT700 (neumann went to another studio...!)
and a Fat Track for VO work. It records straight to MBOX2 Pro and PT8.
And now I hear the mic is "not there" anymore: noise, crackles, hiss...
So an upgdrade is needed soon!

I´m thinking of getting a Shure SM7?
The main question is , would I benefit getting a low budget AD DA (ultramatch?) for my set up? Would it make a difference?
My recording booth is well constructed and isolated (double doors and very quiet)
And I do record some singing there too.
Any help and recommendations are welcome!
Huge thanks, I love this forum and people

PK.

Hi PK, I just must say that I have a best musical bud who's voice I've heard singing and talking a million times in the same room. He sent me a bunch of recordings he made with an SM-7 and an EV RE-20 and I really liked the EV much better on spoken and singing bits.

As far as converters, I've got the EMU 1212 card and extremely pleased with it. Best of luck with your search.

Heil PR 30 and PR 40 are both good alternatives to re-20's and sm7b. Give em a whirl.

If you are serious about VO and your room sounds good, you really should be looking into large diaphragm condenser microphones (use your ears to determine which is best for your situation) or perhaps a Sennheiser 416 shotgun microphone.

I personally don't agree with this, but to each his own.
