I'm preparing a CD that will use JABB and live trombone.
Sadly, whilst I can record the live trombone at certain times of the day in my studio I am limited by neighbour-friendly hours and volumes.
My studio DAW is a desktop and not mobile, but I do have a (not very powerful - Celeron 930Mhz, 120Mb RAM) laptop with a crappy on-board soundcard.
What I want to do is do all my JABB work on my DAW and then mix it down to a stereo wav., then transfer it to the laptop purely as a guide to record the trombone before moving the trombone recording back to the DAW for processing and final mixing.
I have found a USB microphone [http://www.samsontech.com/products/p...m?prodID=1810] that would appear to be able to bypass the laptop soundcard and input straight into Sonar on my laptop.
My questions are - if I am simply recording one instrument without effects, should my laptop be able to cope, and would this USB microphone be suitable for recording a trombone?
Obviously all responses are very welcome - but if Dan is around, I woudl really appreciate his input!
