    Is this a decent vocal setup for SM7b?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I am purchasing an SM7b for vocals. I will be doing a singer/songwriter set-up, just vocals and midi piano. I was looking at this setup:

    Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface
    SM7b
    A-Designs P-1 Pre
    I am running Reaper on Windows 7

    Is this a good setup? Out of curiosity, if I only purchased the first two items and used the built-in pre in the focusrite (maybe with a cloudlifter), how much difference would there be in sound quality than using an external pre like the AD P-1? $800 worth? Enough for the casual listener to tell?

    Go with the cloudlifter route and save yourself some money.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.
