Hey guys. My new amp doesn't have a cd out so I think my two options for recording are using a webcam and making videos (and pulling out the audio if i want) or buying a mic. I don't have the cash for a mic and all the equipment I need to record with it, so I'm getting a webcam. Can you guys recommend me a good webcam with decent video quality and great audio quality?

Thanks


the amp is a 50 watt tube if thats of any importance.

Just don't. A webcam will always fail at recording. Spend the $100 on a USB mic and use the webcam for the video and the USB mic for the audio.

So the reasoning is:

I can't afford a decent microphone.

Thus:

I should buy a webcam where most of the value is spent on the camera part and less on the mic part.

And then you realise webcam audio will always be pretty horrible (unless it's very expensive).

A Shure SM57 would still be useless without an interface, which (for a decent one) would be another $150 new.

If you went used, you might be able to do it. As for a USB mic, I'd recommend this:

Or, you could do what I do and just use a RockBand mic and Reaper.

I have an M-Audio interface and I couldn't get it to work through Reaper so I was under the impression that I needed a better interface. Apparently not though
