I've modded plenty of things if you want to learn how to do it yourself a mic is a good place to start. The benefit of this is you eventually start getting into comps, eqs and pres and it will improve your recording rig tremendously with out having to take every piece of equipment to someone and you...

You can use the 20 bit adat machines and record in 16 bit like the black faces. You select 16 and 20 bit and analog and digital.

If I had 100 dollars to spend I'd either get A used rack case off craigslist, spend a hundred bucks at redco, an aphex 205 or some parts for a diy mic pre and wait a while so I could finish it.
