    I got most of my Sonic Foundry products from here:
    http://www.sharbor.com/vendors/SFO.html. Sonic Foundry themselves were the
    ones that told me about them. About the best deals you'll find and excellent
    service. Sometimes I'd buy a bundled package, take what I needed, and sell
    the unopened items on eBay. Ended up getting what I needed for very little.
    It's fully legal and OK with Sonic Foundry as long as you keep/sell the
    right parts and don't open them.

    Even though I've been listening to Cash since the 60's I just heard that
    song for the first time the other day. I was calling other people into the
    room to listen I was laughing so hard. A true classic.

    Acid is really more of a sampler/sequencer than a multitrack recorder. I
    have that as well, and use it for doing loop-based soundtrack stuff. It
    works great for that, but for recording instruments on multiple tracks Vegas
    works a lot better. I've tried doing the one track at a time thing in Acid,
    and it's honestly more of a headache than it's worth.

    Yes, again Dan Stanley won't/can't answer the question.

    Hope this helps!

    Well, I thought you were talking about this particular mic in general,
    not every condenser. It really depends. I know you know this stuff,
    I'm just trying to clarify for readers.

    No, a condenser is not a good choice for a single close-cabinet mic
    setup, but it can record an amp sound well in the room (not
    close-mic'ed). It might be better to follow the well-used technique of
    a dynamic used close, a condenser used for room, and mixing the two (a
    technique that isn't easy for beginners)... but just the condenser
    used for room, if in the right spot, can sometimes do a decent job...
    especially a good stereo mic setup (either a good stereo mic meant for
    that job, or better yet, two condensers in a stereo configuration)

    That is often all you need for a good, solid, guitar amp recording.

    Yeah, it's okay with them. They're selling off their retail product
    line (much as already gone to Sony), moving to a fully service-based
    business model. I don't have the press handy, but it was released a
    coupl'a months ago.

    Yep, that's an excellent one, too, although I find it slightly
    inconvenient for converting wavs to mp3s. It's an excellent CD ripper,
    though, and it's easy to make mp3s from CD tracks all in one pass.

    My personal favorite wav to mp3 converter is the command-line LAME.EXE
    plus the Razorlame front end. I like the way you can easily save and
    recall any number of custom settings.
