Hey everybody. I'm Eric. I used to gig often in the Raleigh, NC area but have been away from music for a couple of years with kids and work. Lately I have felt like all work and no play and realized I miss playing! Well I was on a run yesterday thinking as I do on runs. One thought lead to another and before I knew it I had hammered out a song. I got home in time to spill it onto a piece of paper and started to think that bringing it to life and recording it would be a fun project to get back into music.
My question is- does anyone have experience running a harp mic through an interface and using a plug in/digital amp? I have never used any of those programs before but have been looking into it today. I COULD record everything by mic'ing my amps but with different instruments I felt like the plug in would be the cleanest and more organized way to do it. Any pitfalls or suggestions?

I recorded this with a friend using just Amplitube:
My interface (Focusrite Solo) has a 1M input impedance, so is OK to plug the mic straight in. If you don't know the input impedance you can try using a pedal as a buffer before the interface. Also, I learned that clean mics works best with plugins. I used a really clean Turner dynamic mic to record that album. ---------- Sorry for any misspell, english is not my first language.
