|What Piece Of Gear To Buy Next?|
I have 200 bucks burning in my pocket, so I need to buy one of these 3
pieces of gear (the ones in brackets are the ones I currently own,
followed by the ones I would buy new).
Headphones: (Sony MDR-570LP) > Sennheiser 202/219/205/419 (I really
can't deicide which model would be best)
Audio interface: (Behringer Guitar Link) > Focusrite Scarlett 2i4
Bass Guitar: (none) > Yamaha RBX170
My main needs are on getting better gear for music production. I'm doing
it all in-the-box, with a laptop and headphones. Based on the gear I
already have, what would you guys recommend I buy next?

|i don't give a fuck what you buy i just want my motherfucking distortion pedal to arrive on my god damn door step. |
|get the Focusrite Scarlett 2i4. I have one of the larger interfaces of the scarlett series but they all have the same pre amps and it's pretty awesome IMO. I guess it depends on what your recording and if you have mics or not but if your getting into engineer seriously its great. plus it comes with a really great compressor and reverb. The Eq and the gate are alright also. |
|@conesmoke, I wish I had the money to buy pedals hahaha|
@joshuahuntkc, cool! I've heard good things from those series. I don't use mics, I just run my guitar (LTD EQ-100QM) into the interface and use modelling software to create my tone. Do you think it will make a big difference in the sound when changing from a Behringer Guitar Link (cheap piece of crap) to a 2i4?
|Got my first (and only) pedal for Christmas last year since there was also no way I could afford one normally haha. I don't know your current headphones but if they're at least decent then those should he the least of your worries since they won't change the way your recordings sound. |
If you're recording stuff alone it seems like the bass guitar would be the next logical step unless you've got one you can borrow from someone
|I'm sure it would make a difference but you might as well buy a 2i2 because there is no need for a 2i4 if your only running guitar. |
|while a bass guitar would do wonders for recording, save up and buy one that's more than 300$ or it wont really be worth it. |
|Here's what happens: I've researched a lot about the 2i2 vs 2i4, and seeing as the 2i2 doensn't have a |
pad (for guitar input) it really doesn't hold a candle to the 2i4 for what I want. There's also the
Also, I do need to buy a bass, but I make do for now with a special patch on Amplitube that turns the
signal into a bass sound (I know, I know, it's a poor-man's bass, but hey, it works).
