My close friend wants to record some songs with me, but he only has a budget of $75-100 . That's starting with nothing, no mic, audio interface etc. can we pull it off? What do you recommend we do? Thanks. (mostly voice and maybe even acoustic guitar)

If you even have a phone mic or camera, that could potentially be enough. Hell, seen enough videos of them that turned out to be major hits for it. Sorry if this doesn't help any

That would be my idea if I didn't have any money lol, but since he has a bit to spend there's gotta be a better option than that if ya know what i mean.

You might be able to try finding a cheaper USB mic that you can record on. But finding an interface, mic, etc for that price range might be tricky even if you could find them used.
I'd go to your local Craigslist ads and see what they have. I have seen Focusrite and M-Audio interfaces for as low as $50 in my local ads.

Is this acoustic electro acoustic or just plain acoustic?

Find a decent USB mic, like the AT2020USB or ATR2500-USB, look for deals that come with a stand and pop filter, Ebay is a good place or you can visit local audio stores and haggle, maybe get it to within your budget, at least the ATR2500-USB.

If you absolutely have to get something get a Zoom H1 recorder.

I tho would highly advise saving up to get something worthwhile.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Googling "best USB microphone" pulled up quite a few options on the higher end of the spectrum. If you can, just try to find something decent

Bam 65$ and you got everything you essentially need to start a simple recording studio. If you're willing to spend the whole budget then get you a nice condenser microphone instead of the one i posted. Good luck, and have fun.

I recommend you write the best songs you can, because a good song recorded one one track into an iPhone is far easier on the ears than an average song recorded on $500K of studio gear!

Being an audiophile is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it is noble to always want the best possible sound...on the other, there will always be better gear out there, practically until you get to the point where money is not an issue. Before all else, keep in mind that the content is by far the most important element.

$75-100 is plenty. Good luck!
