What I am looking for is a method to get decent quality input on voip chats such at ventrillo etc, and have some cheap reverb/chorus effects. The hardware I can make use of for this is a shure 57, Xfi Xtreme music pci card. Everything else I would like to be able to purchase from a guitar center. I am assuming I will need some sort of preamp so the pci card will receive a strong enough signal without loud static, could I get one with a cheap effects processor, or possibly a digital effects processor on my computer? This all needs to be on the fly for the voice chats. Keep in mind this is just for voice chatting so i don't need hi fi quality, but I do not want noticeable white noise either.
