First off, I'm new here so bare with me ... :P
I am in the process of getting mics and all for my kit. What I have in mind:
Snare - Shure SM57
Kicker - Shure Beta 52A
Overhead - 2 x Oktava MK-012's (OR 2 x Shure SM81's if my friend can hook me up)
This said, I am looking for something in between the mics and my laptop. I will be using Cubase on my laptop, so anything compatible with that will work. Is there something decent for starters? I don't want to spend TOO much on this device yet, as it is just for basic track recording right now. Nothing too fancy. Any advice appreciated.
