Sorry for anyone who was interested in the thread about the Echo gina, M-audio black box, and digidesign mbox, but since I no longer need all the extra equipment that goes with these designs, I'm not interested in them. Anyway, to the point: My friend has access to essentially any software I could want, All I need now is a decent mic and preamp. I know little about either, particularly mics, so any good suggestion is welcome on those (as long as its around $100 or less). For the preamp, I'd like low noise/distortion, phantom power, and two mic pre's so I can play guitar while a friend plays bass/keys/sings. PCI card is fine, but USB 2.0 would be preferable for ease of movement or if I need to use a laptop.
