I'm finally getting set-up to record to the PC. For guitar, I'll be going from GT-6 to PC via digital out -> digital in. For voice, I've noticed a "microphone connector" little port thingy on the back of my PC. So, I guess a microphone of some quality is on order. Keep in mind, of course, that I realized that this set-up would hardly be considered "pro".

So, my question is this. Nick and others have posted freeeware links for things like mixers, etc. Is this all I'll need once I have voice and guitar getting into my PC?

yup, pretyy much. once you have audio getting in, its just a case of getting a DAW (digital audio workstation) which you can get for free (e.g. audacity or one of the versions of reaper. then download any samples, loops, etc you might want to use so your recordings aren't just guitar and vocals. unless you want just guitar and vocals. once you're au fait with tht, then start looking at plug-ins (specific apps like compression, reverb, etc to add to your recorded sound).

Getting there. The recording happens at like 4x the speed, making playback sound slow as heck and quite off-key. :evil:

Edit: I think I'm functioning now. Had to just restart the software. (Audacity)
