I've often needed to record while at a musicians house/studio/practice-pad (same goes for podcasting on the fly). To do so I needed my studio (or part of it) to be very mobile. I always want to achieve the highest quality sound as possible so it doesn't sound like a portable studio.
What is the best setup for a small, extremely portable studio? (thinking single mic, etc). I currently produce hip hop, electronica as well as do some screencasting/podcasting.
I should note that my current set up for mobile recording is as follows:
- Laptop with a DAW
- M-Audio Mobile-Pre
- Condenser Mic
- MPC1000 and/or Akai LPK25 MIDI Controller
- Snowglobe Mic (set up for omni directional)
- Laptop with DAW
- Laptop w/ Camtasia (for MAC and PC)
Any additional tips/tricks would be appreciated.
