What is your favourite mic?
I have a few mics but my favorite for vocals and most acoustic instruments is my Audio-Technica 4040 Cardioid Condensor.
What is your favourite pre-amp?
Class A XMAX Pre-amp
What is your favourite sample library?
I record mostly real instruments but when needed, the expansion packs for Toontrack Studio Drummer 2 including Indie Folk and anything Steven Slate are pretty incredible sounding in my opinion.
I am a MAC guy and my main DAW is Logic X. I use YSM 5's for monitor's and an Audiobox 22vsl interface.
