I own my personal recording equipment.
I wanted something versatile that would make me able to record in different situations, from chambers and halls music recordings (string quartets, small orchestras, piano, acoustic instruments in general) to foley and soundscapes for my sound design projects.
What I want to achieve are clear and transparent sounds for high quality standards. Then I decided to buy an interface with less mic pres but with a higher quality, and with this interface I’m able to expand using external mic pres if I need more microphones.
