I don't mean to be harsh, but if you don't even know what to plug a microphone into, why are you buying them?skdrummer":3gij6iv3 said:also, i was thinking a little cheaper, like CAD
i was thinking about getting a 4 pack, 1 bass, 1 snare, and 2 to hang above my sets near my crashes (thats what ive seen pro's do)
so what stands do i need to put my mics above my set?
and i cant figure out what cable i need and what it plugs into (speaker? mixer?)
The problem with the USB mixers is that they only allow you to send a stereo (2-channel) submix to the computer -- that is, you would have to make all your mixing decisions before recording, as you won't be able to separate the instruments/voices after recording to change levels, eq, effects, etc.skdrummer":mc110j7r said:would this be a good mixer if we needed to record:
4 drum mics
and 1-3 vocal mics

also, would it be possible if i bought 2 of these http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/ ... sku=452055
and put them on a rack system?
Thanks. I am a songwriter and have a small home studio. I've been recording (mostly myself) for about 10 years. Drums are my newest hobby, both playing and recording, so I'm here reading more about that.Rockaflodge":2nhwc5fz said:WOW Scrubs! You know your Shit!
Did you ever work in a studio?...I was a studio engineer for two years at ardent studios in Memphis TN.(Three doors down,ZZ Top) to name a few. I learned all about mics,cables,mixers,preamps,phatom power,protools. And I could have not said it better my self. it just makes me worder if you ever worked in a studio.
I don't wanna shoot down all your ideas, but I wouldn't buy that mic. First off, USB mics are, imo, pretty useless, unless you're doing podcasting or just recording your band practice. The reason is, they aren't compatible with anything other than a computer with a USB port. You can never plug them into a mixer or other preamp. They can't be used in conjunction with other mics at all. Basically, it's something you will have no use for as soon as you buy any other equipment. Also, Samson is about the lowest of the low when it comes to quality.skdrummer":39jwnbwi said:do you think a regular local music store (anyone heard of reimans music?) would hav that to offer?
we arent that advanced yet, so i am just gonna go really simple and use this:
the absolute cheapest i can do, we arent that serious yet and havent made a penny (well not rlly, cus we won our middle school talent show and got 5$)
would that give me just basic quality? not good or bad
