What is the setup in this picture?

Hello, I'm also open to your suggestions for other products but... My friend is a vocalist but not very technical minded and Im trying to suggest to her a basic setup she can use at home but also take when she travels. She has a bit of money to spend but again, will not understand a complex setup of more than a few cables


I think Ive seen this setup used by Kehlani on the road, this is what Banks uses at home but Im not familiar with the gear apart from the headphones and software, can anyone identify the mic and interface (or suggest something else)?

Thanks!

I'm assuming she'll be recording a vocal mic to her own accompaniment, either piano/keyboard and/or guitar ? Perhaps simpler than a laptop and interface would be a single box recorder/ mixer...say a Zoom R8 or R16 ? These allow individual tracking of voice and instrument, with the ability of overdubbing ( adding additional layers of instruments) as well. These record to SD cards, and she can also add effects, which are inbuilt within the recorder.

The SD card can also be used to transfer these individual tracks to a DAW within the computer, for mixing later....although mixing can also be done within the recorder. They truly are a very convenient, lightweight, all in one box solution

A pair of headphones, vocal mic and stand, mic cable plus 1/4" TS to TS cable ( to connect instrument to recorder) and she's ready to roll.

The quality of mic will depend on whether this is an on-the-road sketch pad for getting ideas down fast (a cell phone can do this well enough for sketch purposes) or demo quality, perhaps bed tracks for later overdubbing or track replacement for final takes. If you give a bit more detail on intended uses and purpose of the recordings, and to what quality level of recording, further advice can be given on mic selection.

i would recommend the h6 from zoom (300,-) or - if it is not too expensive - a sound devices mixpre 3. both sound better than the old r8 and r16, esp. the mic preamps. the easiest one to use - imo - is the h6.
it comes with two different stereo mics. most use the xy-mic. i have the impression the ms mic sounds really good.
i own the h6, the mixpre and even the r8 (donˋt use it anymore).
if she would use the sm7b she needs a cloudlifter with the zooms, the mixpre has enough gain for the sm7b.
