Hi PPG…
You know we can talk prices of anything except guitars.

I'm not sure what hamiltons are...

gotta say the C-1000 is OK when pushed through a PA live, but sucks in the studio. Here's a sleeper that should cost a lot more.

Default Hi

Hi,

What would you recommend as an USB interface (cheap but good) (other than Tascam?)

Thanks

centrance Mic port pro or axe port pro.

26/96. Very well made and full featured.

On my MacBook, I have connected Mic port and Axeport to 2 different USB ports and brought them up in Garage Band. I'm not sure all computers can do that.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Is a pair of these any good for recording?

I bought these several years ago and never really used them.

You mean $10 bill. Benjamin Franklin is on the $100 bill.

Also, you cant go wrong with an SM-94. Even if you end up upgrading in the future, it will have a higher resale value as it is far more popular than other more exotic microphones.

Hi Selen…
I've been to a lot of studios, and have never seen one used as the go-to acoustic mic yet.

Not trying to be contrary, but there are better choices (my opinion based on doing acoustic recordings for over a decade now). It's ok, but not stellar...and my experience is it lacks detail compared to other comparable mics.

Better drum mic than acoustic guitar...

Hi ento…
Lexicon Lambda...$120 - CLiCK


Good reputation (been around for a decade), decent internal preamps, nice options, full 48V phantom power, multiple inputs, multiple outputs, and dial-it- latency monitor on the hardware. Sturdy but not intrusive (nice size).

Been kept up to date by manufacturer…



Comes with software, and works with several other brands of software (including Audacity)...

$120 street price…
