Here for the gear
 

Thumbs up Questions, Questions...answers please :)

I got my myself a "Oxygen 49 + Mbox mini black + pro tools 8 le"

I will choose for the Rode Nt1a, best for vocals (most of peoples said)

1st: I just wanted to ask, do i need a PRE AMP with the MBOX to make sound better ? I dont use any instruments (guitar, drums, ..) i make beats myself & sing on them. Do i still need a PRE AMP ?? issit for instruments or vocals ?

2nd : My "Oxygen 49" is not working on PRO TOOLS, i tried it on SONAR program & there it works... Help please

3rd : And btw, do i still need anything else now to get a better vocal quality or sound quality ?? or is this enough as "SEMI PRO" ?

thanks allot !!

You don't HAVE to get a Pre Amp, no. The MBOX has built-in pres. I did a lot of work at a studio and the engineer recommended that I buy an external pre. He could tell the difference. I started with a UA 610 and now I've added a Neve Portico. It really does help.

What exactly do you want the Oxygen 49 to do with Pro Tools? Which version of Pro Tools do you have?

Sounds like you are off to a good start. The Rode mic is fine as a starter. There are a few mics in that budget range that are good. Later, you can move on to a fancier condenser, but you can make great music with a Rode. It's all about the song and performance.
