Advanced player here with a newly purchased guitar from mangore.com I need to make a cd by the end of the year, mostly classical recordings. My sound card is $*^t, my $20 labtec mic just broke, and all I have is a MZ-R90 Sony MiniDisc player. I have about $300 to spend. I have researched mics and decided on either the HM-1 or the SP B1. Which do you recommend as far as mics go? I am a noob as far as preamps and recorders, I don't even know what a preamp is. I planned to just record to minidisc then somehow, maybe at a store or friends house, burn the minidisc to CD. Any other suggestions/ideas for the $200 I am going to have left over after the mic purchase? :?
