Is there a usb microphone for music recording that’s fairly decent and not a million dollars?
i’m trying to record some stuff but it sounds craptacular because my microphone sucks.
Sure – the Samson C01U and C03U are pretty popular. The C01U is a cardioid pattern, and the C03U is a selectable multi pattern (cardioid, omni, figure for some recording options. Both also include recording software.
The other more versatile option is to get a USB or FireWire interface. These let you use any mic you want and also include recording software
My usb condensor microphone records low?
so basically i have a 100 dollar usb condensor microphone, i use it for rap, the quality is really great. But everytime i record something, and place it on a track to be edited and mixed, the audio waves are so small and thin (i can just edit them to make them louder and etc and sound clear) but, i just want too know why it records so low? Any suggestions? My pop filter is about 2-3 inches away from the microphone, is that too far? Advice?
Yes, get closer to the mic. Make sure the mic volume control in the software is turned up while recording – your level should be set so that the recording meter is almost in the red (just below the red). After that, your recorded level should be better.
What is a good USB microphone to record singing + guitar with? (that I can use at home)?
I’m a musician and need to start recording some songs I’ve written at home for my A level. What is a good one to use? I’m not willing (or able) to spend more than £50 (like $70)…
That’s a tough one. Most USB condenser mics (best to record with) start at around $100, USD. The better ones are $150 to $250 and up from there.
I use an MXL 990 XLR condenser mic that I paid only $50 for but, that was about 3 years ago and they are selling for $80 to $120 today.
You could try one of these but, I know nothing about the quality … Http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/CAD-U37-USB-Condenser-Microphone?sku=271322 – http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/MXL-MXLUSB006-Powered-Condenser-Microphone?sku=273175 – The MXL is probably the better of the two.
Can you use the Logitech USB Desktop Microphone for recording acoustic huitar, etc. into the computer?
A microphone is just an input device on some systems and some windows systems you might have to calibrate the mic. All microphones work very much like a speaker in that sound causes some type of electrical signal to be produced which usually passes through a capacitor and some type of current limiting.
After that the analogue signals (your voice) go through DSP processing and then the sound is ready for the computer to understand. By the means of replacing the analogue with a digital representation of the live sound, in short applying a value to each sound wave.
USB Condenser Microphone for recording??????????
What’s your personal opinion on direct USB condenser microphones for recording?
Is the quality good? I’m looking for really good quality
Please tell me what I need to know.
For most practical purposes a USB mic is just as good as the other kinds. The difference becomes more important for professional productions and thus the differences in prices for pro mics.
Hope this helps.
