2022 has been a fun year guitar wise. I started teaching and I have a little more pocket money to spend on music. My resolution for 2023 is to write and record much more frequently. I’ve been putting it off because I haven’t had much time to learn how to do it all and because there are a few last pieces I need.
I should be mostly set, I have interfaces, a DAW and a nice set of headphones and I have S-Gear for recording electric guitar parts. I will be picking up EZ Drummer soon. We also have a keyboard with MIDI out which should work for most other parts.
I don’t have a good microphone for recording acoustic guitar parts or vocal parts. I’ve been looking at the Rode NT1-A, which I think should be good enough for my purposes, however I’m wondering if I should go for the NT1 instead (a little more expensive) or maybe something else. Down the line I’d also be interested in getting a lapel microphone for recording guitar lessons and a matched pair for recording stereo, so I’d also appreciate recommendations for these also.
If it helps, my interfaces are a Scarlett 18i8 (1st Gen) and a Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen).
