im cheap but want to record my music
so.....
i got audicity cuz i heard that was good
now all i need is a good computer mic to but up to my amp or acoustic
any suggestions on a good clear computer mic that i could get it like best buys or hifi buys?

a suggestion: don't even think of putting a computer mic that close to your amp. you'll be good a couple of feet away with the acoustic and turning the volume way down on the amp and having the mic a good way away from the amp. about any mic will be good. record with the mic far away, see how loud it is, then adjust accordingly.

A good clear computer mic for recording does not exist. I have used a USB Logitech headset years ago to record vocals. But that is not hte best way to go your better of getting an SM57 just an overall versitile mic.

computer mics are designed for capturing vocal frequencies,wouldn't do you good for recording...get one of those shure SM57's like everybody suggests

I'm new to recording stuff..I have the trial version for a recording software called Sony Acid, I was wondering if this Shure SM57 mic could be hooked up to the computer and if I would have to buy any seperate adaptors in order to do so.

you'd have to buy some sort of preamp with xlr inputs, ya know the black plugs with the 3 little holes, i'd recomend a 1 input computer interface, like 1 guitar and 1 xlr, so maybe the line 6 toneport ux1, or if you find somethin similar but cheaper.
