Tomorrow we begin tracking finish vocals for a project we started in March. Funny, when we initially planned the project, I was hoping that we would be on final mixes before June. Looks like final mixes won’t happen for a few more months yet. The joys of recording.
I’ve been convinced by one of my suppliers to give the Apogee Rosetta a try in the studio. A typical vocal chain for me is a high-quality condenser microphone, connected to a high quality microphone preamp, a bit of compression and, from there, directly to the Analog/Digital (AD) converters into the Digital Audio Workstation.
I use the AD converters within my Pro Tools HD rig. My supplier argues that the Apogee converters are much better and I should notice a significant difference in the quality of the recording. I will be picking up the unit later today on a trial basis.
Which, as my wife can attest, is somewhat risky. On occassion, with such items, the trial basis never ends.
