If you are a good singer, a cheap mike will be discouraging. But you will not know until you try. Does your laptop have a built in mike ?

For professional sound the one that comes to mind is a shure sm58, but after visiting shure website I see they make a PG series that connect via USB for home recording.These are $300-400. Personally I would look to the used market.

Hi Caperdog. Yes my laptop has a built in mike. I have Audacity for recording, but i was looking to maybe add some echo, or reverb but they were greyed out so i couldn´t access them. I must have done something wrong. I have a couple of mikes i used when i did karaoke, but they have a 1/4 inch plug. Would they work if i put a reducer to 1/8, to go into my laptop. 

If i can´t get Audacity to perform, what other prog could i use to record. thanks.

yeah 1/4 to 1/8 adapter will work.

Audacity probable needs a plug-in http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/plugins

Audacity seems to be the free weapon of choice. A quick google turned up this list of free audio editors
