This question is for all the producers and rappers on this site. I'm trying to record some music and I was just wondering, what do y'all use to make beats? And what do y'all use to master/mix (dont know the exact term but how do you get the song to sound professional)? I use to have a cheap USB mic and would record vocals. After I I'd use audacity to mix an already made instrumental. But the Quality was terrible. Sounded like if I was in a kareoke booth or if it was live.
Thinking of buying MBox 2 Mini and a Shure SM58. Are this decent materials for a person who has no music recording knowledge?
