    What do you guys think of the firewire audio interfaces? They seem like the best way for me to save on getting a mixer and a compatible sound card if I'm using the computer to record. Have USB ones superseded them these days?
    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    Not necessarily. I've been using RME's Hammerfall system for the last eight years, and the model's PCI card still connects to the breakout box via a 6-pin IEEE 1394.

    M-Audio offers some reasonable combination preamp-and-A/D-converter units, if I recall correctly. The deal Beat mentioned sounds like a steal if you're not content with freeware applications.

    As for microphones, the SM57's an acceptable workhorse -- especially for its price. I managed to snag a Beta 57 on eBay for less than half its MSRP a few years ago, and it does quite well on acoustic instruments.
