    Aight, I been doing this rap shit for a few years now, but now i wanna get serious about it...This is my equipment as of now...A computer, CEP, Acoustica MP3 Audio Mixer, a Sony V220 mic ($20), a ghetto pop filter (panny hoes), and I use a lam as a mic stand (verrry ghetto)...my quality is straight as far as no hissing and shit in the background...but my question is how can i get cd quality cheap? I got a closet available right near my computer so I can make that into a booth...

    I need to know the modle and price of these things that I need:
    Pre-Amp?
    MIC?
    POP FILTER?
    MIC STAND?
    and whatever else you think i need...

    also is all this equipment compatible with any computer?

    help me out...Im trying to stay in a money range of out 200 or so...you know something i could buy with Christmas money

    christmas is a ways off...
    uh. if you want to stay in the 200 range, you'll be looking at...studio projects b1 condenser mic, and one of the cheaper behringer preamps probably. just find the cheapest mic stand a pop filter you can. and yea, it is all compatible with a computer, provided you have a soundcard...

    I'd say try to go down to a guitar canter or local music center where they have pro audio schtuff and take a look around and see what you like. Plus u can ask the people there and they usully have a good an correct answer for you.

    I would say buy some paper and a pencil and a oscilloscope at Radio Shack for 15 bones. Then record into the mic each syllable you want to say, attach the oscilloscope to the mic plug and look at the oscilliscope and redraw the wave it shows. Then find the analog to digital conversion math on the internet for free, and write down the wave's binary definition onto a piece of paper so you can save hard drive space and money. When your ready, retype the binary into the computer and save it as ImCheapAsFuckAndHaveNoDreamsOfBeingSerious.wav.

    yup mos def - lookin into gettin a delta 44 as soon as i got the money - then ill have nice quality but man - 200 dollars isnt gonna get you much - go on musiciansfriend.com and get the cheapest MXL condensor mic there is, then the cheapest pre-amp, then all the necessary mic accesories at their cheapest price - 200 is nothin man - an OKAY mic is gonna cost u 200...so ur budget is gonna leave u with lots to be desired
