    Setting up my homestudio with a new microphone

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Okay, so i am currently in the process of building a home studio. I currently have a Peavey PV8 Mixer, and im using a brand new Macbook Pro as the centre of the studio. My next purchase is going to be a microphone to record mainly vocals and acoustic guitar (maybe sometimes some electric). I cannot decide what Mic to get though. I've been looking around the 150 range. So i've looked at the Rode NTA1, the Blue Spark the SE se2200a (anyone got any other recommendations?)

    An example of my vocal "type" - /watch?v=yZtV5AzQZmI (add to the end of your Youtube URL)

    I will be glad to answer any questions and take any advice. Thanks

    I'm edging towards the sE2200a because it just seems like a much more professional mic than the Blue Spark. And i've heard mixed reviews about the Rode :/

    Blue doesn't make bad mics.
    Just like Yamaha doesn't make bad anything.
    They just don't.
    Nothing wrong with your choice though.
    Cheers ♫

    I've seen a write up about the Se microphones and I was surprised at the craftsmanship of the hand built microphones in their factory unlike most others that are machine made.

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