And I can hear the screaming from here. Sorry for putting ya'll throught this again, but I am again in the market for recording equipment. This is what I'm looking at currently: an ART USB dual preamp interface ($100 from Musician's Friend), and some simple mic. Looking at around $200 for the whole setup, including any needed accesories. I need an instrument mic first, because I can make it work for vocals with the stuff I have lying around the house, and I can't do the opposite as easily. If I absolutly must, I could save a while longer, and pay $200 for just the interface and mic. I have another project to save for after this, so I'm looking to not spend too much on this one. Thanks for not killing me for the return, and I'll try not to be a pain this time. Also, thanks for any help you could throw my way, and sorry for the long post.
