This mic is all you really need to get started.
At around $99 this mic is hands down the best bang for your buck that I’ve used. Touting both XLR and USB outputs, this is a great starter mic. Just plug it into your computer and you’re ready to record.
* Need an interface (below) to plug two into the same computer.
The toughest mic on earth.
At $99, this mic is one you’ll be passing on in your will. It’s virtually indestructible. It’s XLR only, so you won’t be able to plug it directly into your computer, you’ll need a digital interface or mixer (see below.)
The sweetest, velvetiest mic you can buy for under $500. Selling for $399, you’re going to love the way you sound. It’s XLR only, so this one doesn’t plug directly into your computer either, you’ll need the Rodecaster Pro to power this beast (see below.)
