  • I want to start recording vocals for my music but I don't have a mic, anyone know of an OK to good microphone with a price ranging from 40 to 50 euros? I don't have a lot of money, I'm only looking for something that works well and is reliable and durable. Any suggestion?

    what kind of phone do you have?
    it might not be too bad if it's a newer iphone

    aside from that i'd check ebay or craigslist near you for a USB mic

    you won't find anything super fancy in that price range

    US only maybe. I just searched up a "Blue Yeti" on an eBay clone. I'm sure you have some over there.

  • Shure Sm 57 / 58

  • OP, do you have an audio interface? I don’t recommend using a usb mic as something to record vocals. It can be done but I wouldn’t do it

  • I got Shure SM 57 and it cost me 150 eu but it's a great mic

    Why wouildnt you recommend? What do you mean by audio interface? I really am inexperienced when it comes to recording I'm only used to working in my daw

  • That shure 57 sounds nice guess I'll have to save ip and work a little before getting it tho

    Microphones use the XLR cable so you need an audio interface that connects to your computer to be able to use the xlr cable. Some mics require phantom power to use and an audio interface can provide that too

    I think around $100 you can find a decent one on massdrop

    Most people’s first one is this amazon.com/Focusrite-Scarlett-Audio-Interface-Tools/dp/B07QR73T66 (I own the 4i4 3rd gen version)

    Don’t cheap out that much cause it’s worth getting good gear

    Yup thanks a lot man

    Tbh only reason I'm looking for cheap stuff is because I really don't have any real money lol but I'm planning on working a bit next year to get some gear anyway
