Somebody asked me how I crank out so many recordings. This is it. Well, with two wonderful AKG mics I bought from Pat Sky and their cables.
The M-Audio Fast-Track pro is a powered external digital sound card. You plug your mics into it (1/4 inch jacks or Canon XLR output) and it plugs into your computer. I use Audacity to do all my editing. I don't use any EQ or effects.
