    Default WTB Mike For Recording As Learning Tool

    Heard recording yourself is a great learning tool. If using my IPad and something like Garage Band work for this? Any recommendations for a good app and mike appreciated.
    Thanks, Mike

    Unless you are looking to buy a used mic or audio interface, I'm not sure if the Marketplace area is going to be able to offer you much advice on equipment and/or software options.

    I posted to your other thread on this topic here with some info: http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/...31#post2011831

    Personally, I use a USB mic (Samson Meteor) into Audacity (free) software.

    GarageBand is fine. Suggest an external mic that you can use. I use an Apogee but there are many choices from about $100.
