cheap gear sounds thin, distorted, and cheap
a cheap mic sounds gutless - it sounds like a cheap mic!
The reason why good recording gear is expensive is that it is hard to make!
It takes the best quality parts expensive parts !
You may think the sound of what you're doing is fine, but no one else
will, and for god's sake no Professional Recording Engineer will
for a moment think your stuff sounds good.
So DO NOT BUILD YOUR OWN HOME STUDIO !!!
If you think you have any skill as a recording engineer
you should be doing projects at a good PROFESSIONAL Recording Studio
and there are a ton of them around - with large good sounding studios,
expensive equipment, well maintained gear, and good mics.
GO and do projects there, not at your house!!!
If you think you have any talent as a musican
Go and record at a good PROFESSIONAL Recording Studio
the sound you'll get there will be vastly better than anything you can do at home
GEZZE... what the hell are you thinking???
