Hi I'm Dave and I'm new to the forum as well as music recording. I will be recording my band's first demo in the near future and I am going to need a better microphone. I will be recording every insturment seprately my 3 year old lap top (which is a peice of crap). Then I will then send the files to my new computer and use N-Track to mix them.
What I need is a multipurpose mic for recording drums, guitar, bass and vocals. But like most garage bands, we're on a budget. We don't want to spend more than 50 bucks. But I do want high quality.
These are what I found best suitable so far:
Shure SM57 for $90
Sony ECMMS907 for $70
I'm leaning toward the Sony because of the price as well as the mini plug. If I were to get the Shure, would a mini plug adapter be okay? Also, are there any alternatives to these? Maybe something less expensive?
The truth is, ANYTHING would be better than what we have right now. So maybe a $30 Shure mic would be enough for what we want.
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreicated.
