For the purposes of music, of course. To make a long ramble rather short: I want to be able to record instruments and vocals and then put them on my computer, preferably in a format I can mess around with.
I have no idea where to start.
Blindly searching Guitarcenter is never a good idea, plus I figured there had to be a few musicians here on Giantbomb who could help me out. I don't need anything too crazy (or expensive), but I want the quality to be decent; I tried using an expensive Logitech microphone (rigged to a table), but the audio always goes to shit whenever the guitars get loud. Also, since I'm not really that great with setting up equipment (I can plug a bass into an amplifier, and that's about it), it has to be something relatively easy to set up. It'd be awesome if I could connect the stuff directly to my computer, but I don't know how I would finagle that.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
