    wheres the beats coming from? a mixer or an external audio device?

    i would suggest instead or using mics ro record it into the pc, having a soundcard that has a direct audio input.

    Mic-wise, it'd depend upon the budget you have available. I'd reccomend for starting off something like a Beta 58 or around that level. I've heard many great things[listened =p]. After that try sticking with a standard of AKG/AT, experiment with other mics and their sounds for what'd best suit you as you go. Check out some local studios to see what their equipment list might be.

    For sounds I would recommened either using real sounds, or getting a sound module such as the Korg Trition (rack version), this way you get much, much higher quality sounds than you would if you used soundfonts. Though, in some cases, soundfonts can be very good quality to, or they have the particualar sound that you're looking for, it's your call. :D

    I have recorded some excellent vocal tracks with an SM58... it can be done. The key to good mic sounds (on a budget) is to get a good mic pre & a comp....
