Recording voice overs is a professional career for many, but without the proper microphone to capture the quality needed we’re essentially at a wash. As we’ve reviewed microphones for many years now, we’ve gotten a good hang of creating guides for particular uses, so today for our voice over microphone guide wanted to give you an array of choices that span across multiple microphone types, connectivity, budgets and more. We do recommend saving up some cash if your budget is still pretty low — voice overs mainly concern sound quality, which will translate into a decent price tag but to us is well worth the investment. Let’s take a look.
The debate between condenser mics and dynamic mics will always be a relevant debate. Anyone who owns a handful of microphones probably has at least one condenser microphone and one dynamic microphone. In my experience with both live and studio sound, I have seen countless applications of condenser mics and dynamic mics, sometimes even for the same instrument. Each time I ask the engineer why they chose that microphone for that application, the answer is almost always some manifesto about how that is the only way to do it. In this post, I’ll be explaining the differences between these two types of microphones and you can make your own decision as to how you’ll use these two common types of microphones.
Buying a microphone for gaming will give your voice a step up when it comes to one of the most important parts of the process as a whole — communication (both to your teammates or even your enemies). Whether you’re in need of a simple solution to replace your headset mic (that really isn’t ideal for sound quality in general), or perhaps prefer to game with a high-quality pair of headphones and need a microphone to accompany your setup, we found 10 of our favorite models here to recommend you today. Many of these will also work for those who stream, record, or partake in any other side projects that need a mic. First we would like to teach you a few factors to keep in mind while you look for the best gaming microphone for you, since we have a lot of options depending on your budget, setting as well as type of mic preference.
If you’re in need of some recording equipment, in particular a microphone with a few accessories to get going on your musical endeavors, we found a few bundles that may perfect to help you save some money. Microphones aren’t necessarily cheap, and it can be confusing which accessories you actually “need” or can suffice without for the time being. Luckily in the music gear world, a lot of our favorite brands (and a few of our favorite mics in general) come with some “packages” that can cover some bases you were already planning on purchasing separately, creating a nice little collection of gear to get us recording right out of the box. Let’s get into the top 10 best microphone packages we found that are worth buying today.
Setting up a wireless microphone system can get complex if you want to do it correctly. With the recent FCC auction of the 600 MHz (Megahertz) band of frequencies, users of wireless microphones all across the country are being forced to reconfigure their wireless systems. The age of having the freedom to leave huge gaps between your wireless microphone frequencies is over as the amount of available frequencies has been drastically reduced. Because of this, it is important to purchase the right equipment and make the right choices when setting up your new system.
