@Chef... How much did it cost though?

And do you guys do your first mix through monitors or through headphones?

No prob at all Eraze, you can use anything reasonable to record you vocals. See i started upgrading to higher end gear cause i realized the limitations of some of things i was working with, like the Studio Projects C1 is extremely bright and often times brittle on certain types of voices, it was pointed out to me by quite a few dudes in the states. I recorded an artist called Whosane who told me when he got back to the US his producers and peoples kept asking him what mic he used, cause it didn't capture his voice the same way i mean in a good way.

Its also in the Pre-amp and that can change the mic's characteristics. i'm investing in a Rode K2 next month and then moving i gonnaa invest in the Neuman U87 (one of the dopest mics in the industry)

i recently bought the Universal Audio 6176, which an amazing pre for micing and instruments, i also bought the Focusrite Voicemaster pro (platinum), both are beasts.

i had a studio projects pre that i used before on the C1, when i moved over to these Pre amp's, wow just amazing.

Invest in your vocal chain... you Soundcard --> Pre-amp ---> and Mic. trust me, work on that first. ;)

I also use a Quad Processor G5 MAC though  ;D (just braggin!!!)

For the C1, U may end up paying 3K..if nt less..

I understand Draztik's point and just cz Im nt in his league, I settle with what I have. My prized possession is my Waveterminal soundcard which makes recording vocals nicer.

The best advice is U may have cheap equipment,bt the technique counts.

that's just it, get to know your equipment no matter what you have, there r always tricks that you end up using, to push the limitations of you stuff.

I use a MAC, cause of a few things, the speed, power, easy boot up, stability (even on cracked stuff ;D) i have recently registered most my software just cause it's the right thing to do if you making money on it, and (an almost - virus free environment) i have a lot of artists stuff on my machine, i need that added protection for the work that's done. you can run windows on it, cause its universal binary machine.

I'm currently working at a community radio station. This is an excellent thread. Hopefully i can some up all this information and present it to the local producers. They do not understand that i cannot play tracks with poor mastering.

Thank you Draztik et al.
I put Religion, Opression and Weakness underground and when i looked down i felt myself begin to GROW.
