I am looking up to setup a Home Recording system. My primary focus is vocals. I am a complete newbie who so far was using karaoke systems but wants to change the hobby to profesion. I have about $1500 - $2000 to spend on it. As I understand I need the following. Please correct me if any of these are redundant or if I need more than what is listed.
1. Books/Videos: $100 Please recommend some good ones on Digtial Home Recording and web repository ...
2. Digital (maybe multi track recorder ): upto $ 1000A friend of mine owns Zoom MRS-1044. I would rather look for a hard drive based rather than smart media card. What are comparable recorders basically best bang for the buck ...
3. Vocalizer: $350 DigiTech Vocalist VR ? Recommendations
4. Microphone: I already have Shure SM58 So I was thinking of buying the Antares AMM-1 microphone modeler.
5. In the above set up do I need a mic-preamp?
Thanks in advance.
