Be sure you at least read the section in the article on gain staging.  I think between the mic, the interface, and Cakewalk Pro, you'll be more than set.  Let me know if you have probs with anything and I'll help you however I can.

Thanks, man. I'm sure I will have many questions! I did read the article and watched the video; sounds like -12 on the gain is where it's at for digital recording.

No, not yet. I was told it would be delivered between Wednesday and Friday so hopefully it shows up tomorrow. I was hoping I would get a couple of days to play with it before Friday but no dice.

  I'm so glad that you all have saved these posts because my microphone issue is very similar to this. Now I have a good place to start. Hopefully it will help resolve the issue

It's not too expensive, so it's all good.

I can afford to keep it up and running, even if nobody uses it - and nobody helps fund it. LOL

  Although the post has aged, the information contained is still helpful in solving the issue I was having that was really similar to this. I have an inexpensive USB microphone, that I had moved from my original recording setup position, and I had hung it from the strap on the amplifier as I used to do with my old standard microphone. That's when the weird noises began!

  I use a soft styrofoam, similar to a kids pool floaty but with a hole down the middle and a slit cut from end to end. Then I run the mic cable through the hole or slit and shove the microphone into the hole at one end. I face my 2 amps towards each other about a foot apart (Not recommended if you use both at the same time!) and place the mic on the floor in a position near which ever amp I am using. The soft foam seems to reduce vibrations caused by the amp which seems to have caused the weird noise or interference I was getting. The positioning of the amplifiers allows me to reduce outside noise by boxing in the mic between the amps.

    I didn't need to go as far as purchasing the interface which was spoken of in the comments. I did download the Cakewalk software and I am enjoying using it over the Audacity software I had previously used.

  Thanks for the tips and I hope this post helps someone else in the future.
