Completely new to recording, so looking around for some information on this site.
Think I got most of the information needed, but a bit stuck on microphone choice.
What I want to do :
Start with recording, just to try out so looking for not too expensive gear.
Would like to record acoustic guitar, vocals (not mine!), and electric guitar.
(In that order of importance)
- getting an M-audio Mobile pre interface,
- some OK-ish headphones
(somebody recommended Sennheiser HD 205, still have to find out more about those)
But as said, stuck on mic choice.
In the RT-001-BeginnersRecordingGuide recommendation is
Shure SM58 as budget solution or Rode NT1 as 'good' solution.
In the section RT-004-MicrophoneGuide however recommendation is rather
Rode NT1 PLUS Shure SM57 and a VERY strong recommendation of getting the SM57.
Now I'm a bit lost ;-)
Trying to limit the budget (max 200 EUR for mic, preferably less).
I would like to start out with only 1 microphone, but keeping the options open
to get an extra one later on if needed and if I still like to go on with it.
Best regards, Jan
