    buy a better soundcard then the one you got it will help alot, also pad the room u record in so the sound doesn't echo & bounce around and sound crappy

    umm get a pop filter too and eventually get a better mic

    home recording is the lowest option but it can be done

    That wasn't my question! My question was if any all y'all know a midi-keyboard or a software program with some dope basses. I know how to put them!

    check this....

    hardware..

    soundcard..............what u will need to improve ur sound is a better soundcard thats what i did,,,or get a preamp

    cpu ram..............u need A good amount so ur comp dosnt run slow..this will drain the life out of it ...gotta have ram

    mic..........of course this but try my tekneeks first mynbee it will help u

    .................................................. ..................................................
    software.........

    program...need a decent programewith some good filters like sfx and a eq

    .................................................. .................................................. .

    try this ..to see if it helps


    recoarding................

    tip 1.............with the mic u got now u will need to throw some cloth over it something thin wrap it twice......this will be ur pop filter..it will some what help with hearing of ur breathing and other small sounds u dont want

    tip2............ when spitting in the mic u will want to move ur head away from the mic to catch a breath try to not breath to heavy

    tip3............when done spitting take ur verse and copy it overlay it by throwing it under the verse copy.... turn one down a lil..this will help make it sound more bright more clear a lil louder 2

    tip4.............befor u make 2 copies eq the verse turn the hight down some this will take some of the harsh noises out...and u could turn down the bass just a tad

    tip5............add sfx to it....put a lil compression on ur verse and some reverb just a lil of both

    tip6 ..........add a background verse......spit out lines or words u want to stand out more.....................also when complete go threw the background verse and cut it up and move ur words so some to make it even up to the words in the verse on ur first take..so it sounds better........also eq it add compression and reverb to it...dont double up on it
    u want the background verse not to over shine.....and eq it a lil diff ;like try upping the mids a bit and having the highs up a lil more then ur first recording ...also add a lil more reverb to it to



    tip7.........clean up every thing by cutting it up and deleting blurbs and other sounds u dont want in their

    thats it from me......

    i have a 5$ comp mic ......go listen to my shit tell me if it sounds like it


    peace

    p.s onother tip try and do a verse in one take..u dont want to many takes cuz each time u record it will sound diff..so one take per verse

    for da Microphone I can Say that Behringer B1 is a pretty cool Thing
    with high quality and not extrem expensive 100 bucks u need only a mixer with 48 V Phantom 60 till 100 bucks and pop killer 15-40 bucks and u hav a nice record

    i just bought dese shit and and it s better than normal old tools

    and it will be mo better to check extern sound card firewire USB 24bit/114khz with pnatom 48V with this ish ut sure u got like studio quality
    the problem it coasts 200 till 300 euro but only if u hav bucks to spend for quality :-D

    WORD, IN ADDITION TO DAT TIP, FOR DA HEAVY SMOKERS OUT THERE, SPLIT YA 16 UP IN 4 PARTS, LIKE SPIT 4 ON BEAT, THEN CATCH DA BEAT AGAIN W/ DA NEXT 4, MAKES U SOUND MORE ON POINT WHEN ITS MIXED DOWN
