I just got a new microphone to record my guitar with a USB port on the end. But I thought that I would need a interface or something to improve and edit my sound. What do ya'll use to record your music? And is there anything else I will need? I'm new to this recording stuff.
Your first mistake was purchasing a USB mic. Really, the only improvement you can make with that is upgrading your soundcard. If you got a traditional mic with the XLR, then a interface would be necessary and quite helpful.
As Nic and Boni said, I'd suggest you buying an audio interface and an XLR Mic. I personnaly use a UGM96 as my audio interface (which is USB), and I connect my guitar or my mic to it. Guess you can buy some pretty nice stuff for a hundred dollars, maybe a little more.
Ok, well I'm now looking to buy a mic with that. But will I be able to use my pedal board with a interface? Can someone explain what I need to do and how it works? And also, any rec's for software and mics?
