Thanks for your comments.. It's pretty overwhelming!

I agree that the soundfonts are not as good as real instruments, but they
are the closest I have got.. 

I am not completely happy with my singing on this but didn't think it was
worth being too perfect against the background of cheesy soundfonts.. I
may yet re-record it.. 

On the subject of Mics, does anyone think it is worth spending anything on
a low-end microphone considering I will be recording in a room with
echoing walls, and a not=so silent computer, into a cheap SBLive! card??

All the best,
