I just bought the cheap condenser mic for vocals yesterday along with the Audio Interface. And within this post, I want to share with you guys about how to choosing the good studio mic for recording vocal into the computer.
When it comes to recording the vocal on the computer whether it for music, broadcasting or podcast. One thing that you should consider is what type of mic you should use. What kind of brand that has a good price for your budget, etc,
Because literally, you can’t just use a “standard microphone” to record your vocal into any recording software in your computer, that usually people use it for talking or singing on “live performance”
Because it is not designed for that. And you will get a bunch of noise and very “unprofessional” result for sure. So! Condenser based microphone is the gear you need if you want to get a great result like a pro.
A Condenser mic is designed to have very high sensitivity, low noise & wide dynamic range. It has a cardioid pick up pattern built on it. So it is perfect for ‘Home’ Studio recording, Podcast, Broadcast or any situation where clarity and accuracy needed.
And … like I’ve mentioned before that I just bought a new cheap condenser mic and
