OK, so, im new to recording.. Been reading a lot about recording, equipment, mics, monitors, ect... I want a good dynamic for my guitar amp, and the two im torn on are a sm57, and the audix i5, leaning more towards the i5. Anyone have extensive knowledge on both? What do you think? My other option of course is to eventually get both, and record either one on one speaker, the other on another, or, one on axis, the other off..
Next question is I want a good versatile codenser mic, pref. no more then $200, and im not opposed to used. What does anyone like in this price range? The ones ive heard alot on are the at2020, and the B1.. Personally, ive been looking at the mxl 3000, or something from blue.. It would be used for a room ambient mic, acoustic instruments, and vocals.. What do you think?
