Any tips on how to sample a djembe - african skin drum?
I have a load of software - soundforge, ableton, cubasis, fls, but I do not have a mic or a recording sound card.
can anyone give me a few tips on how to do it, and is it worth getting a second hand mic to do it? what stuff would I need? the drum is a small one, does the mic need to go into the drum?

the best bet is to stick a mic at the bottom of the Djembe and when you play it have it tilting towards you, get good results like that.. if using two mics put one overhead too. But just experiment you know what kind of sound you want!
