Love those videos. The recordings sounded great. I'll keep the Apogee in mind if I stay with the USB idea. However I think I may go with the separate USB interface.

I have two USB Mics... the Shure MV5 and the Apogee MIC. They are both excellent for your purposes, but I defitely like the Apogee better. Actually this is recorded using the Apogee... And so is this...

There's always the second-owner market... I think I've only ever bought two mics brand new in my entire life, and those were on clearance! The rest have been bought mint secondhand, mostly off Ebay.

Maybe a matched pair of Rode M5s would get you started recording stereo acoustic guitar with your Scarlett. ~$250 CA new. http://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/rode-m5 Save up for a pair of good flat studio headphones like Audio-Technica...

A friend of mine has one attached to his cheapo Washburn, and he loves it. But it's really not for me.

You might consider the Presonus Eris E5 or E8 as a good pair of flat near field monitors as a competitors to the Yamaha HS5.

I don't know your budget but the AKG C214 is a fine LD mic. Another good LD in the same price range is the Audio-Technica AT4040. For stereo recording of acoustic guitar you might try a matched pair of Rode NT5s that you can find on eBay...

Re: USB recording Mic (reply)
I fully agree with John: changing to another usb mic would be more of a sideways step than a worthwhile upgrade, and you'd still be stuck with whatever the new mic was offering. A usb interface like the Scarlett, on the other hand, would...

You can't go wrong with Scarlett 2i2 and it would serve you well for years. Decent preamps for a great price and easy to set up, and it would open up your mic choices for stereo recording.
