What kind of guitar do you have? If it's acoustic, I can see a way to record with less than $200 total, including the microphone.

And you can't connect your guitar to the Emu sound card. There are technical reasons. The microphone won't work either as it needs a preamp. I'll explain it once you tell me your situation.

If you're recording acoustic/quietish then I'd suggest just buying a portable recorder. It's a hell of a lot easier.

You can buy a Microphone to 1/4 jack (microphone to amp) lead if you really want to though.


ORRRR Just plug a microphone into your pc and use Audacity.
