Hey guys, this is my first time posting here, so I'd really appreciate it if you could help me out.
Anyway, my band and I want to start doing some basic recordings to help structure our songs and record practices (possibly some demo tapes, but nothing too high end). We were planning on just getting a Blue Snowball USB mic ( http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Microphones-Snowball-Microphone-Bundle/dp/B000EOPQ7E/ref=pd_ybh_11?pf_rd_p=280800601&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1501&pf_rd_i=ybh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1PFK8WJPJNXK32D0NA3J ), recording each instrument individually into a computer and calling it a day for now (the omni option seems like it might work alright for drums). We have a pretty low budget, but I was wondering if it would be OK to record the drums with one mic and get a decent sound out of it; the audio doesn't need to be amazing, but it needs to be decipherable in order to critique and change parts of songs. We also have a Shure SM57 mic, but we don't have an PC audio interface or a mixer, so we don't currently have another option for recording.
So basically, for entry-level recording, should we bother getting multiple mics for recording drums/a mixer/an audio interface, or can we just stick with the one mic?

Thanks guys.
