I just purchased a Snowball USB microphone made by Blue. For $100 it sounds badass! I can't wait for my Sonar home studio software to get in so I can start making some songs. I'm not sure how, but I might try and upload something here soon. I'd like to apologize in advance for any mistakes I might make since I don't have any way to edit the shit yet.
Oh yeah, no software is needed to record. Works with the windows sound recorder.
Quick little 76 second clip here. Like I said, sorry for any mistakes or background noise. The mic was just placed about 1 1/2 ft from where I was playing, recording sound is only on 25% so you might have to turn the speakers up.
And if anyone wants to hear my pathetic allergy infested attempt at Stainds outside (partial), let me know. The guitar sounds fine, but my voice is lacking right now. Hope it doesn't affect my drinking tonight.
