Hi, Several months ago, a forum member recommended me some higher-quality microphones to record a project that consists of recording several podcasts during a year period. These are the USB mics he recommended. http://www.sweetwater.com/c981--USB_Mics My questions to you are the following: What do you think about the microphones on the list?? Do you have in mind another microphone in mind that you may want to recommend, wether it may be a USB one or not?? Are the recordings smoother when one uses a USB microphone ??, or should I buy a good regular microphone and an adapter like the iMic, but with better quality. This is a photo of the iMic: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/imic What do you think about the iMic adapter, do you know a better one, or is it really a waste to record with such an adapter when there are already USB microphones ?? Thank you very much, very kind regards, igmolinav.
