After Much Research I have Found What I believe To Be The Best Home Studio Software Money Can buy, Meaning Cheap

As said reader this post is all about the condenser mic and the mic, instrument pre amp. I can not over emphasize the absolute importance in a mic pre amp, it will make the difference between a consumer level recording, semi pro, or pro sound. I chose as the best pre amp 150.00 the DMP3, this is the best hands down, another for 40.00 that will blow minds do not over look this as a starter pre amp if your tight on money, like most of us are, this kicks and is excellent for electric instruments also, you can make a semi pro to pro recording with this 40.00 pre amp.

I mention at the near end of this post what I have read and heard many top recording engineers say, the mic pre amp, is the most important device in the pro mic recording chain, it is over looked and it should not be, a 100.00 mic can sound like a 1,000 mic with a great mic pre amp.

Mic pre amps, there are many, all have different sounds, and as a engineer what we do is mix certain mics with certain pre amps to get a certain sound. The pre amp is one of you main purchases. I do not like USB mics at all, but the AT2020 has a great USB mic and no preamp needed, it is wild what one can do now days, its price is worth every penny if you want a great pro USB mic , the AT 2020 for the price, at any price is the best of the best for a USB mic.

The At2020 for 100.00 is a top choice one of my favorites and for good reason its tops and for 100.00 dollars, expect to pay, 100.00 for a 24 bit sound card, 100.00 for a semi to pro condenser mic, and 100.00 to 150.00 for a great pre amp. In my next post I will cover home studio monitor speakers, the different types, uses, and my round up of the best you can get for pennies on the dollar.
