    Just look on ebay. I scored a Presonus Firebox for $108 used! (I got super lucky) SM57s are all over the place. At most, $100 new, but they pop up everywhere from craigslist to ebay. If you went all used, you could probably get an interface and a SM57 from 200-250 bucks.

    Reaper isn't exactly free either. There is a free full-functioning demo of it that never expires, so on that hand it is free. They don't believe in crippling their software, so you can use the demo forever with full function. I used it for 97 something hours before I just bought the license for like $50 bucks or something.

    EDIT: Thanks for the links Nolly, I'll check them out tomorrow. Going to the Rockies season opener right now though! GO ROX!

    I thought the demo was only for a month

    That's what the description eludes to on the site.

    They don't cripple the demo, though. It's shareware, but they would love for you to pay for it, and you certainly don't get any support if you don't. In my opinion if you have intent on doing a full project with the software - eventually selling discs, sharing it on the Internet in various ways - you should pay for the very inexpensive license. It's a hell of a program and I've only scratched the surface.

    By the way, if you see an SM57 going for cheap, be sure to check it's not a fake - they are some of the most widely faked mics out there. If you search Google there are a ton of sites that show you how to spot a copy from the real thing.

    Kinda thought I did a decent job of explaining the Reaper thing in my post

    +1. I would recommend just buying it new from a reputable dealer, not from some dude on eBay. It will last you forever if you take even the most basic care of it.

    Oh, yeah. I agree 100%

    I always just thought from their description,

    If after 30 days you decide that REAPER is not for you, simply delete it.
    Made it seem like it was, although a full demo, still for a trial amount of time.
