    Hi everybody,
    I'm looking for a good microphone to plug into my dual g5 tower. The G5 makes a considerable amount of noise, so I guess I need something that is unidirectional - not sure actually, I need some advice.

    I will be using the microphone for voice recordings, no music. The recordings need to be high-quality, so I'm not looking for a toy-type microphone.

    Also - if anyone has any tips for recording around the loud G5 without picking up a ton of computer noise, it'd be most appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    I've used the Shure sm-58. It's a unidirectional mic used for a bunch of different applications including voice, rooms, guitars, etc. It's a fairly decent all-around mic. If you are on a budget, this is a good choice.

    If you want something higher quality and have more to spend, I recommend the Audio Technica At-822 or At-825. They are superior stereo mics that give you the realism and depth you hear with your own ears. I was amazed at the Audio Technica's ability to reproduce the actual performance of whatever was being recorded.
