Hey Head-Fi. A friend of mine is an excellent pianist and aspiring guitar learner, but here's the deal: she's always showing me recordings she took with iPhone. She is a phenomenal concert level pianist as far as I know. (she is too shy to actually play concerts, but just loves to play)
Anyways, I'm thinking for Christmas I would get her some method of recording. I figure a decent mic for a Piano and some sort of interface with her Macbook Pro. She also has a decent keyboard but I'm unsure of if it has a MIDI interface or not... She's not a techie at all but I could definitely help her with setup. I'd hope something simple-ish exists for this.
I just have no idea what forum online or anywhere to look for. Any help is appreciated I know Head-Fi is very knowledgeable :D Tried googling but it's all kind of over my head at the moment. I think a Diaphragm mic would be best but I don't know what's reasonable to plug it into or anything. Total recording newbie. Enlighten me!
TLDR: I'm looking for an entry level price/performance ATHM50 of microphones/interface-thingies for piano with a Macbook pro. Someone lay out the whole thing for me.
