New Microphone?

2012-10-06 23:41:35 by Shishiza

So I've been contemplating on getting a new microphone. I understand that voice acting isn't all in the microphone, but it certainly does help (especially since I went from using a USB headset, to a microphone stand, to a shitty webcam microphone).

So, here is my plan: I want to go with the MXL 990 USB Powered Condenser Microphone. I'm not too microphone savvy, but it's compatible with a computer and has nice reviews.

I'm not certain if I want to go through with it yet, but I also need to know if I should get a program to record with as well. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to tell me.

I just realized that I have only checked your NG page about over a few 3 times and decided it would be fair of me Check your NG page.

That Microphone does look sorta pro-ish, it's little but it is way better than a Webcam Microphone by far, how good is it really? i'm not very Smart around Microphones, and that little briefcase looks sorta cute and funny due to it's small size, it has a Comical appearance.

Shishiza responds:

Well the microphone is $150.00, and that's considered "fair / cheap" as far as recording microphones go. It's made for computers, but it also is the same kind of microphone that music producers use for their singers / instrument players in a recording studio so it's actually pretty good.

Woah that does sound pretty good.

Would say the audio technica AT2020 USB is a better choice, and cheaper
But it depends on the voice

non-usb is real way to go, but would kill the wallet more

Shishiza responds:

With car payments, bills, and the possibility of moving, I have to try and go cheap.

Also do you have a link for that specific microphone? I'd love to get some more information on it!
