Hi there, I'm looking for some suggestions regarding a good Microphone set up with my MacBook. I have a Sony ECM-MS907 Electret Condenser, and would like an efficient way to record my Piano pieces in such a way that there is no noise, Light hissing in the background. There's a particular type of noise I'm interested in avoiding, one that is present in most recordings i've listened (The type of noise where one is able to distinguish from a studio recording to an amateur recording) - It's a breezy constant noise in the background (It may be a grounding problem). I'm aware that the microphone input in the MacBook will not allow me to directly plug in my microphone and that it needs a power source and amplification. I'm not too keen on purchasing the Griffin iMic since it lacks an adjustable pre-amp, multiplying only the digital signal which includes the noise. Which unit do you recommend I purchase and how would I go about installing it? I would prefer to simply plug the microphone into one unit, and plug the output of the unit to the MacBook (If it were that simple). I've heard of the Art Tube MP, is this any good and how would I install it? I'm not looking to spend too much (around $90/£50). I just want to achieve a near-studio quality (studio, if possible). I have searched other threads but I see a lot of suggestions that do not state the full installation instructions, so I've created a new topic. Thanks!
