Hi All!

I'm by no means a musician but I do know my way around computers quite well. My sister is a great pianist and I know some awesome vocalists too. I just want to record them, as cheaply and effectively as possible.

I'm a bit of an audiophile so I do have the "output" covered. My headphone system might not be a preferred monitoring system but it is extremely revealing and sometimes annoyingly so.

Anyway, I don't know anything about mixers or MIDI controllers (I assume I don't need any of this if I only want to record acoustically). I would like stereo so I would think I need two mics (I hear Shure SM57/58 are good?) and two preamps (ART has a cheapy one). I just need a way to get it in the computer. Two discrete channels would be great, then I could mix and match using Adobe Audition or Cubase etc.

I was told two mics makes things much easier because it gives more body/soundstage to the recording...
