    I am buying Mic please help me to do the best right choice

    Behringer UM2 does not have MIDAS preamps and balanced outputs!! I told you to buy cheap but not that cheap. ;) You need audio interface with good MIC/LINE preamp so if buying Behringer you should go from Behringer UMC202HD with proper TRS cables. Any noise coming from these audio interfaces is...

    I am buying Mic please help me to do the best right choice

    Well I can't speak for you but I always go for the cheapest gear that is still good enough for music production. I have two products from Behringer and I am pleasantly surprised with build quality and features. That said I would rule out Samson as its the same thing as Behringer C1U. I would go...

    I am buying Mic please help me to do the best right choice

    If you have a very tight budget then nothing beats Behringer C-1U for 35 EUR. U stands for USB. Another option is Marantz Pro Pod Pack 1 for 51 EUR - desk holder, usb cable included. If you can spend a little bit more then go for Behringer U-Phoria UMC202HD audio interface for 66 EUR with...

    I am buying Mic please help me to do the best right choice

    Dude you are about to make some serious mistakes. :rolleyes: USB mics are powered trough USB while XLR mics are powered by dedicated +48V phantom power from audio interface. You can't power XLR mic trough 3.5!! If you must buy cheap USB mic then Behringer C-1U is good enough.

    I am buying Mic please help me to do the best right choice

    If you can try to get something a bit more serious with audio interface. I have Behringer TM1 Complete Vocal Recording which is excellent RODE NT1 clone and Behringer UMC204HD audio interface bundle for less then 180 EUR. You can also get Behringer U-Phoria UMC202HD for less then 66 EUR so...

    Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

    Analog synths are cool but after careful consideration and additional research I decided to stick with software synthesizers from FL Studio. I was really looking for an excuse to get one but I can't find any. Besides most of them in my price range are out of stock anyway and the ship with new...

    M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro

    Yeah what DAW do you intend to use with Hammer 88 Pro? I am on FL Studio with Oxygen Pro 61 ( little brother of Hammer 88 Pro ) and while most functions work some just don't. I find this Mackie/HUI control "standard" more of a guideline. Its unbelievable to me that from 1981 till now no...

    I need a portable midi bass module for my keyboard set up without a computer

    Not sure if that is what you are looking for but the cheapest, coolest and pocket size bass module is Korg Volca Bass. :) or you can try Roland clones from Behringer TD-3

    KEYBOARD KORG PA600 VS YAMAHA PSR SX600

    It depends what do you need from keyboard or what is intended use. If you are going to use a keyboard mainly at home then Yamaha PSR-SX600 is far better choice then old Korg Pa600 but if you plan to use keyboard for more serious purposes like gigs and some basic music arrangements with high...

    M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro

    Yeah you are right. I checked on the net and it looks like Hammer 88 have a modified version of Medeli K6 keybed also used in Kurzweil. I can only assume then that Hammer 88 Pro is on the same or similar keybed but with added aftertouch, but its too early to speculate.

    M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro

    I had many times Studiologic SL88 Grand, with Mixface and all accessories already in shopping cart but then I would change my mind. Its to risky for me. I read to many bad reviews about display going out after one year, partially working software, bad keys or poor assembly and more or less...

    M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro

    I forgot to add that it comes with aftertouch and the keybed is probably Fatar TP/100LR. I also have to say that sliders and knobs are probably not very precise and pads are a bit stiff. I know that because they are the same as on my Oxygen Pro 61 however at this price range I guess they are...

    M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro

    If you are in the market for 88 key midi controller check out the new M-Audio Graded Hammer-Action USB MIDI Controller with Smart Controls and Auto-Mapping. They essentially combined the M-Audio Oxygen Pro features with refreshed Hammer 88. The price is 752 EUR here in EU and to me extremely...

    Want a 'fun' weighted board...

    If you go with Logic you can spend the difference in price for some powerful software synths like Serum, Sylenth or Spire. ;) Note that in Live several packs are not complete. You only get essentials of the pack. Whatever you choose, have fun and test these DAWs thoroughly in different music...

    Want a 'fun' weighted board...

    I was in same position like you just months ago. :) Ableton Live is an excellent DAW but it was literally created around session view, live performance, smooth clip transitions and loop based production. Just like FL Studio its ideal for fast song production. Sure it can do everything other...
