Well.... xmas time is over with and i am looking for a studio setup on the cheap.... well about as cheap as you can get... my budget is 500$ and this comes in about 530$ with studio foam!! so i think setup would be good... but i have a question is there anything you guys would/wouldn't get in my setup? is it a good entry level deal?


I cant do a firewire interface b/c my comp is not suited for that so im going for the usb approach!
my mixer/interface will be the alesis multimix

its about 160 and the reviews are good it also comes with cubase LE wich i here is good for entry level recording (as a back up im might use audacity)

monitors are gonna be m-audio studiophile av2
http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product?sku=601029V
they are 100 and are powered and connect via USB (i can catch a break with this b-stock ones that are 80)

studio headphones would be the sennhieser HD 202

they are 30 and on the top selling list!!!!

now... i already have 2 mics... they are mxl 990 and the mxl 991 they are decent i think for vocals.. at least they should do... and as a back up for those i have two shure sm58's now they are old and im not even sure they work... if they do should i use them...

and for the instument mic i want to use the sennhieser e609
http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Sennheiser-E609-Silver-Dynamic-Guitar-Microphone?sku=276668
it cost $110 and its a bit pricy but the reviews rave on about how great the quality is...

aside from a few cables (i have a mic stand) and patch cords..... thats everything...
and its rounds out to be 400 even plus tax and shipping...
so i have alittle wiggle room ( haha jello commercials)

anyway if someone would be so kind to tell me what they think of this setup i will get it and this well be my last what do you think of this post.....
from now on it will be a bunch of cubase questions and mixing troubles.....

I had skittles and I asked the girl next to me if she wanted some and she said "No way I hate skittles" and turned around. She turned around and her arsecrack was showing so I poured some skittles in there.

Hold out on monitors. Those things are ****. Definitely if those SM58's work, you should use them. Buy the stuff you want now, and save for the Maudio Bx5's. Then after that spend the rest of your savings on bass traps. Look up DIY acoustic treatments.
