I have been playing music for a very long time, and now the last two years I've been busy with improvising and composing a little as well. I've also been tinkering a little with some DAWs, and to keep it simple, I want to capture the acoustic instruments I play to use in my works.
I am mainly a percussionist, that is, my main instrument is Marimba. However, I also play a lot of piano lately, and I would like to capture both.
However, I am new to recording and microphones. I wonder if:
-Someone could give some general advice about what type of microphone would work best for these instruments. I only intend to buy one microphone to capture both instruments (maybe I want to buy two for stereo) since I only have a small amount of money.
-I have no idea how much money it will cost, but I can tell that I don't really have more money than $150 right now.
-I do have an EMU Tracker Pre with two inputs which I believe could be used to connect the cables to the computer.
Thank you for your time,
