I want to get a decent large-diapragm condenser mic for recording at home that's not really pricey. What's available these days? The only "bang-for-buck" brand name I'm aware of is Rode Mics. They seemed all right, perhaps a bit too much presence in the sound, judging by what I've heard (some locally made CDs where Rode mics were used) and by what people have said about them in forums. I have a Roland VS-840, as well as a basic PC setup with Cubase. I'm not sure what else I'd need other than a condenser mic... preamp? compressor?
