If you had to keep one single mic and one single sound-generator

Hey Paul,

Thank you for taking the time to do this Q+A, big trip-hop fan here!

Pretty straightforward question that is somewhat tricky but hopefully fun: If you had to keep one single mic and one single sound generator (synth, drum machine, guitar etc)...what would you keep?

You have a lot of experience and I can imagine you have seen, used and heard a ton of gear, so I was wondering what's on your "desert island" list.

Hey Diogo!

Single mic - SM69 Tube - sounds great on everything and it's stereo.
Sound Generator, that's tricky - I'd like Ableton & Push if you'll let me?

Interesting choice! I could be wrong but I think I've also heard @ Jules saying great things about that mic. Too bad it is a bit hard to find and when you do it costs a small fortune, but surely looks like one hell of a mic.

Well played sir, well played!

Since we're on it...have you been using more VIs instead of hardware synths or are you mixing up both worlds?

Thanks once again Paul!

Well to me the mic is sweeter than a U67 so it's very useful on all sources. Especially drums. It's the only mic you need on a kit.

I don't tend to use VI's if I'm tracking songs apart from a couple I couldn't get in the hardware world. I use them more for writing with PUSH or an Isla Kordbot to get bass lines, chords and melody ideas down quickly.
