Studio microphone suggestions audio gear?


Hi, just wondering what good audio equipment to look out for. What mics cheap and expensive, also what eq's, pre-amps, compressors etc...
i fancy having a play with the audio side of radio but at first want to start this cheaply before i go out and spend loads of cash. i se some Behringer mics cheap on ebay and some cheap Behringer pre-amps/eq's. Any information here would be good for me and other users wishing to have a mess around with their audio.

Paddy

Ah! Well, I can help there emoticon

I'll have a think and post something up. I do recommend you start with the W2IHY stuff, the 8 band equaliser and a half decent mic, really can sound the FDB, can be a bit expensive though, but teaches you a lot.

Also you need to know the capabilities of the radio you will be using, as not all radios will get the wide audio sound, or even an eq smooth level sound (Which is what I aim for nowadays)

I'll have a think emoticon Hunt around for a budget setup emoticon Stay away from the Behringer 802 mixer, you'll never need it, looks good and its cheap, but useless pretty much when it comes to radio audio emoticon

i have read a bit about the IC7000 radio Dave, it seems you can wire the audio through the ACC socket on the rear and it bypasses all the inline/internal filters from the mic socket.
i have been looking at these: Behringer Xenyx 802 and Behringer Ultragain PRO MIC-2200. The only thing with these is they take up room that i dont have in the current shack/shelf so any ideas on smaller items would be cool

Hi Paddy, the kenwood TS850 and dsp 100 is a good start for wideband audio as it can be set for full 6KHz wide audio, the monster Kenwood TS950 can do this also, I've heard some great audio from the newer Kenwood TS870 with Behringer gear too.

Have a look for an Audio Technica ATR 30 mic, cheap as chips and perform as well as a mic 4 times the price (so the reviews say) I got one for £20 new! I'm getting good reports on my audio just with the ATR30 straight into the front of the TS850 with the DSP100, sooner or later i'll probably get some out board equipment like an equalizer and hopefully make it even better.

Here's some info on this link you might find interesting -
