A measure mic, and an ADC/DAC combo.

The cheap mic to get is a calibrated Behringer ECM8000 from Cross-spectrum. Iffy below 100 & above 10k but sufficient for most diyers purposes. For really serious stuff an Earthworks ($650+?).

Then you need an interface. I have an Edirol FA66 which connects by Firewire. There are quite a few other brands & they come in Firewire & USB. USB tends to run cheaper, but Firewire tends to run at higher sampling rates with less problems. My FA66 doubles as a Firewire DAC for my music server.

Is there anything between the two mics ? not as high as 650 bucks but better than the ECM8000 ?

Is the ART Dual USB good enough or is it worth to get something better for measurement and design/set up ??

Audix Mic TM1 looks like a common mic too is that a step up or just fancier look ?

cheers

I've never been able to afford more than the ECM8000 so have not done any serious shoping.

The ART Dual USB might do with the ECM, but step up to a more extended mic and you need something that does at least 24/96. It is also not clear whether it will output from the computer at the same time as you get input from the mics (a necessary feature)
