    Sell the USB mic to someone who wants to podcast. Get a proper interface with mic and instrument inputs and a real microphone. Connect both the mic and guitar to the interface. Use the DAW's facility for assigning inputs to tracks.

    But if you insist on using the USB mic at least tell us what operating system and recording software you're using so people aren't just guessing.

    Preferences menu, perhaps?
  5. If your serious about getting a good sound I agree with BOULDERSOUND. Even if you do get your setup to function the way you want, you will quickly learn it has limits and will be back at sqaure 1. And you would have wasted a lot of time. Check around for some used interfaces online and get a sm58. Or if you can get up a few hundred bucks you can get a little basic starter system that will come with software from musicians friend.

    Something like this has everything you need to start recording the day it comes in the mail:
    Buy PreSonus Audiobox USB Recording Package | Studio & Recording Packages | Computer Music Packages | Musician's Friend

    I tried to fight getting an interface for a long time by using my onboard soundcard, usb mics and different techniques. In the end when I finaly built a good DAW it was more than worth the money.
