Hi everyone. I have been trying, with no luck to record my acoustic guitar with a DM-500 dynamic microphone hooked directly to my sound blaster audigy 2 platinum sound cards front Mic in 2 input. It has a level control also. The results are terrible. From looking around on this forum it seems that I need a Preamp to do this properly. Can I use this preamp? Minimic Mic800 by Behringer with a MXL-990 Microphone. I'm not looking to spend a lot of money and only recording as a practice tool. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
