    K, Im thinking of using an SM57 microphonic unit ;) and was just wondering if I can use it plugged straight into my sound card with a 1/4" input? will this work or do they need a power source to work? or is that a certain type of microphone? such as condensor? please help my ignorance! :D

    As some of you may know, Steve Vai was recently interviewed by Home Recording Magazine about how he achieves stellar guitar tone. Steve talked about his mic's, ambience, and how to fatten up your recorded guitar sound. Info comes from the August 2003 issue, pg 36-38. These tips are few, and...

    After just one week of owning a new fixed bridge Ibanez I've decided I want an acoustic guitar now. I've actually just gotten back from the store (yay for days off in the middle of the week). The variation in sound/tone is unbelievable between the guitars I tried out. One brand in particular...

    I have a Martin d-15, and I'm looking to amplify it. Price max is probably about $200. I use the guitar for everything; weekly jazz duo gigs at a restaurant, Michael Hedges (although not even close in talent)style stuff at open mic nights, and strumming songs for people at a camp I work at. I...

    Ok, so i'm in the market for a head/2x12 cab setup right now, to move away from my mesa combo (not as flexible as i'd want it to be, and it just doesn't cut live the same way a marshall does, i've discovered), and so far i'm very impressed with the TSL-100 head. However, Vai's gotten some great...

    I'm having trouble recording te vocals on a song i'm recording. i'm using my Shure sm57 dynamic mike, and every take ends up distorted (it's a metal song, so the 'singing' is more like growling. could that be it?) i was wondering if anyone knows what i'm doing wrong. should i try a different...

    Need one or a couple of nice sounding microphones. I use a SM57 for the cabinet micing. Other than that I want a condensator mic for singing and instrument micing purposes. Any suggestions on nice sounding mics. Money is an option since mics can cost all up to many thousands of dollars.

    I know the term "inexpensive" is relative, but I just need a good large diaphragm vocal mic for recording demos at home. I really don't want to spend over $200 and if I can get something for even less that would be great. I've been using an old AKG condenser mic that is really designed for live...

    If ya wanna record your electric & Acoustic with one mic aswell as sing into it, which one is cool for that?

    I was going to spend the money on a pickup for my acoustic so I can record it better, but then I thought, "that's friggin' dumb, you should just get a high quality mic to pick up the real sound". I know that you can spend over 1K on a good mic, but I don't want to, cuz I'm not rich. So I'm...
