I need some decent, but very inexpensive recording equipment. I have a high-end computer, what else would I need? Just something to record a few small bass/piano duets, and acoustic.
if you get a cheap PA with left and right auxilery outputs, you can just go from your acoustic>mic>pa>computer. But the thing is, is no matter how expensive your guitars and microphones are, if you don't have a decent recording program on your computer, its going to turn out with crappy quality.
A couple of usb microphones and the free program Kristal should be all you need.
