I think it's fully dynamic, no phantom required.

Not knocking the others, just saying that for $95 there's no point in going the extra $30-60 for them OR using a sole 57 (like many people on tight...

Heads Up on a Killer $95 Kick Mic

I just wanted to give y'all a heads up on a great budget kick mic, the Audio-Technica PRO25ax. It's part of their budget line, but it has similar guts to the ATM25 just in a smaller shell (I read...

No problem!

FYI, to answer more of your initial question, if it's a *single* preamp, you're better off using a 1/4" cable to insert it into a non-amplified input on the back of the scarlett instead...

I would keep the 002 away from your chain until you NEED the inputs, otherwise it'll hold you back in terms of quality. Just my 2c :)

Pretty sure the converters and clock on the Scarlett are actually better than whatever is inside the 002, so I would use the Scarlett as the master if possible.

I've done drums on the Tascam, it's perfectly fine. Nothing special, nothing crappy, just fine. I'd recommend it if it's in your budget.

Yep, that's along the lines of what I'm thinking as well. As long as you have phantom power on your interface, any cheap LDC will do you better than something based on an SM58 for studio vocals.

Yeah I got the same feeling, but it's possible that some terrible effects can do that to a signal, especially if you overlay a midi translation (but that's some fairly advanced stuff).

The mic was pointing at the fretboard? Around the 12th fret or so, maybe?
