Okay. I'm a classical vocalist and need to lay down some demos with a pianist (and later a chamber orchestra). I have a MacBook Pro, with the basic garage band program. I have a Blue Icicle USB mic converter and am borrowing a good XLR mic. I'd like to simply place the mic and computer somewhere between myself and the pianist in the hall and record. Will this work? Is there a way to configure garage band that would be best? Call me stupid, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to use garage band. Alternatively, I have an old minidisc player, but it does not have USB. Not sure how to transfer those files to the MAC. Or I could go buy a portable digital recorder, say Edirol R9 or Tascam DR-2d, and do it that way. Any advice? Which setup would likely sound best.
