studio redo advice?
« on: June 28, 2004, 09:47:31 pm »


I'm redoing my studio.  It is for my own music, my band, possibly limited number of other projects.  I plan to record using Sonar into a windows computer.

I write on acoustic guitar, though my main instrument is acoustic and electric violin. Wide range of style, though mainly a hybrid of world/folk/jazz/rock.  My band includes electric guitar, keyboards, drums/percussion, fretless bass.

I want to be able to get quality results [within the limitations of my engineering capabilities, of course]

I'm looking for advice on any and all aspects of the total solution:

mics, preamps, converters, compressors, etc etc.

Budget is not endless, but I want quality gear and am willing to spend as needed.

I do have an RNC, a KMS-32, a 57, a coupla octavia 012?, some old Lexicon gear upgraded by Jim Williams, a Kurzweil KSP8 on its way, Mackie HR-824 monitors. Plus a yamaha s-90 and some nice amps for electric stuff [Bruno, Carr]

I'll need to mic a drum set.  Then track other instruments.  No space to do live full band, but space has a decent sound in itself [not a pro studio installation by any means].

Thanks in advance!
