Hi, I'm trying to record myself playing the piano, but all I have is a Nikon Coolpix Camera, with 8-bit 7***hz mono sound. If you want to see what I did until now, check out DrAsik100 on Youtube, that's me. I'm not too difficult on sound quality, but if at least I could record in 16-bit and get a 14khz range it would be a lot better already. I have a computer with Windows XP, Pentium 4, 1GB of RAM and a P4S800 motherboard, no sound card. At the back of the computer you have the three standard sound adapters: green (where the speakers are plugged in), red and another one, yellow or blue I think. The computer's not in the same room so I'd need a fairly long cable. Can I just buy a microphone and plug it in my computer and record away? If so, what's the best I could get for around 60$? In my living room there's not a lot of tapestry and the piano's pretty bright so there's easily distortion in the high frequency, at least that's what I've noticed with my digital camera.
