I'm looking to spend about $1000 on a portable recording setup that doesn't require a PC. It needs to be capable of capturing 2 channels, and outside that there aren't restrictions really. The intended use is for video making. I'm thinking about getting a pair of SM58s (maybe a shotgun instead?) and XLRs for them. A pair of ART Tube preamps (about $50), and a CD recorder. That comes out to about $860 off of Musicians Friend. I know there are better placed to order the equipment, I was just using them to get an estimate. Does anyone have any comments or suggestions?
