if you want to record straight into the computer you'll need to do that, can record striaght into garage band if you have a mac and use the effects in that program - real cool.

otherwise you'd just mic it. i use the inbuilt mic on my mac which is good enough for home use i spose - very basic stuff.

if you plug mic into computer you;d prob need some kind of convertor plug. i think i havent answered your question at all.
