the 802 is an analog mixer so I'm not sure what you mean with this.
Please clarify.

I love the 2020. I've had bad experiences with Samson in the past, but
I haven't tried their stuff lately.

I recorded most of the stuff here:

http://gnupc.de/~zettberlin/law/samples/free/raw/

with a Samson C02 - the results are very much OK though they reveal
also, that the Samson is NOT HiFi - it emphasizes the higher spectrum so
the samples sound quite brilliant. The instruments whatsoever do not
really sound as the Samson picks them up: they sound much more mellow
and darker if you stand in front of them.

So I guess: if you want a drum kit or an accoustic string instrument to
sound more brilliant then in the real, the Samson could be a clever
choice ;-)

Do you (or does anyone else) know how the Samson C01 or C03 compare to
the AT2020?

One of my old teachers suggested either AT2020, Samson C01, or Samson
C03, specifically, as affordable good quality mics. I'm curious how they
are similar or different.

Thanks!

An analog mixer... is bad? <confused>

Most digital mixers I've seen are extremely expensive. I'm guessing AD
converting might come in handy for use with an analog mixer.

I'm also considering another mixer... perhaps one of these:

http://www.zzounds.com/item--MACDFX12

http://www.zzounds.com/item--YAMMG124C

I'll need a way to connect a board like that to the computer - and to
know whether or not it'll work with Linux/64-bit.

Though, some people have said go for a mixer like that and others have
said don't get a mixer at all. <confusion>

I'm almost positive I'll get the AT2020. Definitely 1...

What would be the benefits to 2?

How could I make the best out of just 1?

http://www.zzounds.com/item--AUTAT2020

My computer will be a slight contradiction, gaming and music
production... though I'm trying to make it work, might get external
manual controls for the fans (to go on low) for when I produce music (or
go on high for gaming).

Since it's also for gaming, I've considered getting basic 5.1 speakers
for that. I'll also have a headset for gaming though I don't want to use
it all the time, the speakers would be nice. Unless just getting 2
monitor speakers (for music producing) could be used effective with the
gaming when I don't feel like using headphones/headset?

What speakers (monitors) are good, at a hopefully decent price, for use
with recording stuff at home?


Thanks,

Sean Darby
