which Microphone do you recommend me for youtube video broadcasting
what's your price range?
Depends, on what you are using it for..
Podcasts or acoustic guitar - Blue SnowBall
Loud electric guitar, drums or bass - Sennheiser e609 plugged into a Audio interface.
I will be doing mostly reviews and unboxings
I've been looking at a USB mic for video voiceovers, and have heard good things about the AT2020 USB ... can anyone here confirm?
This is like asking what food is good to eat when your hungry? LOL
Thanks. Didn't mean to hijack your thread.
If you are going to be doing reviews and unboxings, then I might consider a wireless lav of some kind, since you may not be sitting at a desk, and you can feed them into your camera.
I've been using these as a good all around microphone for recording location work as well as voice overs for a long time.
Sony ECM-MS957 Stereo Microphone with Rotating Mid Capsule
It's stereo so you don't have crappy mono sound or have to mirror the channels to obtain stereo. It also has a really great windscreen to avoid plosive consonants and breathing sounds.
OK so you want a Mic, what does the other end of the mic cable plug into? What kind of interface do you have? Can it supply phantom power?
You say "u-tube" so video is involved so more questions about intended usage....
Will someone be holding this mic on a boom just off camera. Will you be holding it in your hand like a news reporter. Do you need a small clip-on mic? For indoor use only or is wind and weather a factor?
Will you be mic'ing into software, or the camera? I agree with r.j.s. a wireless lav would be most versatile for you. Sony has one for under $200 IIRC?
I have it, works well over short distances, but it is mono.
what you mean by mono?
Mono will be just fine for vocals.
Mono. One mic vs. Stereo two.
Most everything, from podcasts to Brittany Spears vocals are recorded in mono, and mixed out to stereo.
Mono will suit you just fine
What the above poster said. Mono just means it records in single-channel. Not a problem, but you have to pan it later.
