I've been meaning to post about this recently and wanted to get a take of everyones hardware gear audio chain breakdowns.
I've been using one of the most modest and minimal chains for a few years now. Xenyx300 2 channel into AT2020 condenser directly into Pro Tools into MacBookPro. That's it. No extra boosts / sound cards / or pre amps. I could definitely use some more bass and richer boosts for vocals but it passes Bunny's standards and works.
I'm mainly interested in finding a good interface that outputs nicely for headphones. I use Beyer DT 770 cans.
I've tried Scarlett and Solid State but both of those headphone levels were not loud enough for me and I had to crank the dial to almost 10 to be where I needed when recording. The Xenyx gives me tons of room for monitoring with cans. But if you guys have any help it would be much appreciated from my fellow VO colleauges.
