just bought a samson m10. can i plug this into the back of the computer and record? What's best recording program (free) in your opinion?
You're going to need an interface for that, it's not going to plug right into the computer unless it's a 1/8" plug and then it's gonna sound like crap through your sound card.

Free DAW? I guess everyone here loves Reaper up the butt, so check that out. I've never used a free DAW so I can't help much there.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite
going for an interface for xmas but i would like a temporary solution. Ill just record on a tape deck. ThX 4Da help.
