hey guys i run a home studio and just recorded a local band. I dont have a lot of stuff right now and i was wondering if there was anything that would improve my studio. I made about 150 recording this band. i have a presounus interface, a power conditioner, waves plugins, adobe audition, cad drum mics, akg perception condenser for vocals, a sennheiser e609 or pod for guitar.

i was just wondering what other things i could get for around 150. Im thinking along the lines of a tube preamp

cubase 4 studio. of course you have to save up or search the internAtz


EDIT: oh yeah, and go for a mic'd amp for guitar/bass. it sounds 50 times better. my friend has a set up that sounds near professional and thats how he does it.

i have tried cubase before but it didnt do it for me. i love audition but its got so many freakin bugs and now that my studio is becoming more legit i cant afford to have so many crashs during recording

Didn't even read.
Carmel shall now move this thread to where it belongs.


EDIT: Not sure how far you can go with 150$ for preamps.

i have used a micd up guitar amp before but a majority of bands i have recorded really liked the tone they get with the pod better than the amp.

i have been told to get a subkick but i mostly use drumagog to replace my bass and snares. I do use acoustic foam already.

then no offense, you didnt do it quite right. POD's drop a good amount of a guitar's range dynamicism and tone, but conditions must be quite ideal for a mic'd amp not to be colored and reverberated too heavily. tell me these don't sound like the cats tits, all being mic'd of course:

alright that did sounds good. i just can never get it right. i get my sennheiser e609 right on the grill cloth aimed around the center of the cone but when its all done recording i feel like i would be better off just useing the pod. do you think i need a different mic besides the sennheiser.

well we used a e609 and an sm57 surprisingly, on a tube vox combo (i believe, sometimes thru my stack as well). it really is a fickle thiing, positioning a mic as to not color the sound. but dont forget, the mastering/mixdown is what allows one to phase out any coloring and bring the prominent attributes of the guitar style (be it jazz metal rock etc.) to the forefront, not just the amp settings. and it also could be just as simple as a low quality amp/room acoustics.
