Hey. New here...anyways i am looking to just start recording some audio with a microphone and i want to get a great sound but i have no idea what i need. Okay i dont want to do it with MIDI like a direct input from a guitar to my soundcard. I need to record acoustic drums which obviously dont have an input so thats why i need a mic. I have Cubase SX3 which is looking good, i have a great soundcard but i dont have anything else. Okay i know i need a good mic but this is my question...can i get a pro mic and just plug it in to my pc's pink mic input thingy?? or do i need a midi interface for that because i already have a pc mic but it aint good quality and i cant record in cubase with it anyway when i put it in the pink input thingy. Another question is...can i get a midi interface and then put a mic into that and then record with that in cubase??? i have seen the midi interfaces and i think i need the female XLR to go into the mic and then the male XLR to go into midi interface. Then i can record like that...is that right?? Please help me...thanx in advance for your help.
