Dear home recorders - in your experience(s), can an acoustic/electric hybrid guitar ever sound as good as a properly mic'ed acoustic guitar, given guitars of comparable quality/price?

I am looking to get a mixer for my podcast, 300 bucks or less. I would like to get the Alesis IMULTIMIX8USB but I'm not sure if the recording to ipod is worth the extra 100 bucks. Can someone recommend a good usb or firewire mixer?

I would like to know how I can capture audio/video sessions on an HP laptop with built-in webcam for playback on the same machine. Some basic editing functions would be useful to clean up a session. I need to be able to take the file and play it on my Mac as well. [more inside]

Where can I download a live recording of Electrelane's final show? I've emailed the band and gotten no response. Many of the places I used to look online for live recordings are gone.

If you are or were a member of the Recording Academy (Grammy Fdn), would you recommend I join? Has it had any notable benefits or negatives that weren't clear to you before you joined, and has it been worth the annual fee?

I was recently listening to Achtung Baby in the car again, and remembered how much I loved it, and a lot of it was because of the sound of the drums. So, how did U2 and Brian Eno get THAT sound on the drums in Achtung Baby? Anyone know any specific pieces of kit or techniques that they used? Mics used? Drum kits used? So on?

Sitting at my desk testing a Headset/Microphone plugged in to the mic/headphone socket of my HP laptop. It is working fine, but is picking up the sound of the hard drive spinning as it records (using audacity). I have never run into this before and I can't even hear the drive spinning while I am working, but in the headphones (and on the recording) you can hear it.
I have confirmed it's definitely the hard drive as I can match the drive activity light to the sound in the 'phones. How the hell can I stop it picking this noise up?

I'm a musician and interested in doing well done field recordings of mostly acoustic (but sometimes electric) music. I'm interested in doing it with a minimum of equipment, but producing good quality recordings. In the past I've used a minidisc and a small microphone, sometimes with pretty good results. But I'm looking on ways and equipment to do a better job. [more inside]

At a recent lecture, I taped from the soundboard & from some microphones. I meant to record these to separate channels, but I accidentally left it in low quality mode - mono, 22khz. It sounds like video got thrown into the mix. Can I salvage the audio? [more inside]

RF Filter (literally):
I'm using my trusty Sony ICF-2010
shortwave radio (1990 vintage) with a brand-new Edirol R-09
digital recorder. Unfortunately, once I hook up the R-09, it spits up digital noise all over the bands.
