I would still have lots of questions.

1. Where do I plug it in?

3. How, then, would I go about recording something?
4. How would I turn that recording into a file so that I can put it in the thread?

I play guitar and did an acoustic cover of Promenade by (of course) U2. Here's a link: Promenade Acoustic Cover

It's on my SoundClick and there's other stuff on there but because it's mostly original it probably, on quote,

1. Since it's listed as a USB mic, I'm going to assume it just fits into whatever USB ports are available on your computer. My shitty Gateway (complete with Windows '98 and Dig Dug, fun times) came with a microphone that fit into the designated microphone jack on the back of the computer (all laptops that I've come across also have a microphone slot), but this one is a little bit snazzier, I suspect.

2. Same as the speakers. Plug it in, find the microphone settings on your PC and crank that shit up.

3a. Download Audacity; it's absolutely free and has everything you need.

3b. Click the red "record" button and say "Taylor Swift is my bff" or whatever it is you say when you check a microphone. The waveform will spike if it's plugged in correctly. From there, do your thing and click record once more when you're finished.

4a. To export the finished file in MP3 format, download LAME encoder; when it asks you for the file, you just click the one in the folder with .dll at the end, and it'll export it for you.

4b. Once you have the file on hand, create an account at divshare and upload your file there. Simply paste the link they give you into a post here and we'll be able to either hear the track without downloading or, if it's a keeper, we can download it.

Hope that helps. Definitely want to hear anything you can contribute, GAF.

I'll see what I can do. If my roommate ever fucking left, I might have some time to sort out my audio situation.

Once my thumb re-grows itself (adventures in cooking with sharp blades!) I'll try and contribute something here. Limited repertoire, but I could probably toss a little Dylan, Beatles or Paul Simon in there, or U2.

Look forward to seeing some other contributions in here.

Maybe it's time I started practicing that piano again.

Otherwise you'll just get me doing karaoke.

Thanks, guys.

Alicia, you do realize this is the perfect venue to show off your karaoke skillz, yes? Just a hint.

EDIT: alright, so you do. Don't let us down.

There are videos floating around of the stuff I've sung at those work concerts, but the quality is pretty crummy. I was just singing backup at the last one - those were a bit clearer. Oh well. Plan B.

The built-in mic on my computer is, so far, incredibly ineffective and basically makes everything inaudible. It's either way too quiet or way too loud, and it lacks the ability to pick up middling sound.

to be serious and cover "I'm on Fire" (the only thing I can play on guitar), or to subject you all to my AWESOME cover of "Comfortably Numb"
