Hi Mihael… Great question! If you’re using a good XLR Mic, (I’d recommend the EV RE320 or higher) The dbx 286s is a mic processer for capturing good “voice audio” and more.
A good audio interface (Note: I used an entry level interface I think I got from Amazon for around $22.00) to convert that analog audio to digital audio and it worked fine for me. I only get the “Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Third-Gen audio interface” because I moved and don’t remember where I put the one I have. Plus the Scarlett looks a lot better and has great reviews and I just wanted it.
I use a DAW for further enhancing, like adding other Fx to a voice when I want to. Ho, By the way, I’m using Audacity for the record.
I see you have the equipment. So, I’d say you’re in the right energy stream in terms of capturing good audio. That being said, I don’t know of any other device you need in the chain for doing that.
A guy once told me, I could have a million dollar kit and not get out of it what someone else with a one thousand dollar kit could get simply because the person with the one thousand dollar kit tuck the time to learn and master the equipment he had 100% before moving on.
That leads me to a few questions for you! I see “you have the Rode NT1A, DBX 268s Focusrite 4i4 no less and a Computer which I’ll assume you also have a good DAW”
Question #1) What are you looking for or needing from an added audio device?
Question #2) Have you really, by 100% mastered the equipment you already have?
If not, I’m almost sure you’ll fall into a deeper love with what you have in front of you.
Master your kit and create something extraordinary and share it with me so I can celebrate with you.
