Ok so I want to start recording myself. Ive looked through the forums here and havent found any similar topics on this (contrary to what I thought)

Where do I start as far as purchasing hardware and software?

- does hardware exist such that i can plug directly into my computer?
- is this hardware expensive?

-how much does a good mic cost?
is it common practice to record to a computer through a mic?

and if the above hardware does tend to be expensive. (I'm a college student so I don't have a lot of money saved up) What are some cheaper alternatives as far as hardware.

I've read a little bit about the Reaper program, and it seems like thats a good choice for someone like me, but i'm clueless as far as everything else.


Thanks in advance,

Chris

Try this one. It is not too expensive. I think it is perfect when starting recording. smile.gif

I have the guitar port, a similar device. I do not know enough about either to know the difference really but it seems to work ok for recording as well.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

Regarding microphone, it's cheapest to buy some USB condeser mic smile.gif

othervise you will need a mic preamp with phantom power, or a mixer with such capabilities wink.gif
