    If you want to DIY - it is a pretty long learning curve. Good audio techniques is hard. And you need equipment that costs a lot of money. It might be easier for you to hire a good sound guy just for a one off project. Unless you want to build up your audio skills - that's a different story.

      I usually like doing things myself as I learn a bit as I go. If I get stuck helpful forums with helpful people (like yourself) get me on the right path again - but in this case I think if I want the higher quality stuff I will take your advise and hire a sound guy depending on the project because the sound equipment is hideously expensive and overkill as I wont be using it regularly.

      Thanks again!

        You can use many fairly good interfaces.
        I did some tests on fiew preesonus an m-audio firewire interfaces to day and all of them work fine for recording in Edius. and there are also some USB interfaces oute there ( i have never tested any USB my self ).
        You do not need expensive equipment to do this except for if youre looking for super quality sound.
        You need to get interface with fairly good preamp.
        There are many not expensive and quite good microphones out there, like from: Shure, AKG, Senheiser, Electro-voice, RØDE, M-audio and others.

        For example

        Electro voice RE20 wery good for vocal quite god for simple instrument recordnings.
        Shure SM7b grate vocal microphone, quite god for simple instrument recordnings.
        There are many many others not expensive and quite good mices out there.

        The best way to get grate quality sound is of course using GOOD preamps and the right microphone for each vocal and each instrument. it depends also on what sort of peforming you ar recording.
        But it all depends on you or your customers requirements.

        P.S. The price does not always tell you about the quality.

          To record 7 notes - just download one of the million available free guitar vst's and away you go - I mean setting up a live recording system for 7 notes appears rather extreme... oh well, maybe its just the enjoyment and the challenge..

            Project done guys! And thanks for all the responses!
            (I did do the final editing in Edius because I needed the note to be played AS the user presses the button in the game) It came out acceptable.

            Equipment used:
            Guitar
            Amp
            Laptop
            $5 mic

            :D

            P.S. The price does not always tell you about the quality.
            True, Apple products would be a prime example ;)

              Get a garage band cable (1/4 inch to 1/8 inch) and plug right from the guitar to the computer's 1/8 inch sound input. Make sure you wave "mic boost" checked on your computer's control panel. It's a bit of a maze to get there in windows.

              Mic boost maze guide:

              Start

              Control panel

              Sounds and audio devices
              Audio tab
              Sound recording
              Click on volume

              Recording - click advanced tab below microphone

              Advanced controls for microphone - click the microphone boost box

              Now you can use the voiceover tool in Edius to record directly to the timeline. You'll only hear your unamplified electric guitar to guide you musically. You can also get a garage band xlr - 1/8 inch cable to plug in your favorite mic if you gotta have the tone from your amp. You can also overdub this way if you have headphones. No need for other gear - just the garage band cables and "mic boost".
              Main - Edius Pro 9.55, Windows Pro 10 20H2, Lenovo Ideacentre 720-18APR, AMD Ryzen 7 2000 8 core 3.2 GHz, Radeon Rx560 4096 MB.

              Dub - Edius Pro 9.55, IMac Windows 7 bootcamp, Sony MVMC-DA2 DV converter, Sony BVU 800, Sony BVW, Sony DCR-PC101, Sony GV-D800, Alesis MultiMix 8.

              Old Cam - Panasonic HVX200 (DV100_1080/59.94i), AJ-PCD-10, P2 F series cards.
