I’m new to the forums, and for all practical purposes new to Cubase (I did use an LE version way back when I was in my early twenties)… Well, I’m wanting to get back into making music and really think I will enjoy the creative process (and have time now that the wife and I are empty nesters). I have put together a list of equipment I believe will work well for me based upon my reviews and research, but I’m very much interested in hearing thoughts from each of you about this proposed setup.
Here’s what I’m looking at:
Nektar Panorama P6 Keyboard - http://www.nektartech.com/PRODUCTS/Panorama-P4-P6
Cubase Recording Pack - http://www.steinberg.net/en/shop/buy_product/product/cubase-recording-pack.html
- Steinberg UR22 Audio Interface
- MXL 1022 Microrphone
- MXL 57 Shock Mount for Mic
- Mogami XLR - XLR 10ft Cable
Alesis M1 Active MK2 Monitor Speakers - http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/M1ActiveMkII
MS9701TB+ Heavy-Duty Tele-Boom Mic Stand - http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MicStdBoom/
Pro Co BPBQXM-10 Excellines Balanced Patch Cable - 10’ - http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BPBQXM10
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Headphones - http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/HD280Pro/
I opted to purchase the additional set of Sennheiser headphones, as I’m familiar with the brand and quality.
My PC is a Win8 64bit system running on an i7-950 overclocked to 3.4GHz, with 6GB RAM, and using two 640GB WD Black drives in RAID 0 format.
Does it look like I’m starting off with a good combination of quality and value which would hold me for a bit?
Thanks to all in advance for your consideration!!
