Have a small home setup, Cubase, komplete 8, korg triton extreme in a
corner of the living room where I spend most evenings .
It does me fine,
anything I currently record is via my korg or komplete, straight into Cubase.
realise most of you would shudder at the bad acoustics etc
I also have my monitors at roughly 45 degrees from my ears, approx 1 meter away from
each ear ( hope that makes sense).
I want to play around with vocoders both on
my triton and on soft synths. I'm not into serious singing (wife would shoot me if I
tried) and it being where it is, it's obviously pointless spending loads on a top range
I presume that the speakers being where they are, using any kind if mic
with them would be impossible? Due to the mic picking up what's coming from the
So I suspect the only choice I have is to use headphones while
recording my vocoder experiments.
Presuming I have assumed correct, is there a
reasonably not too expensive headphone style mic that I could use along with my headphones
that would work well with vocoders please?
If it helps, both my mixer and audio
interface have Phantom power and Xlr inputs
