Let’s say you need to record your vocals but you are on a tight budget. The best solution is to buy a good USB condenser microphone. The main advantage of an USB microphone is that you do not need extra equipment (such as preamps, mixer, additional cable). Just plug in the USB mic and start record your vocals.
Home Rec Studio Blog wrote that SAMSON SAC01PAK is one of the best USB mic for a cheap and simple home studio. I agree that this is an amazing mic and with proper mixing you can record amazing songs with it. The C01U is perfect for anyone who records audio–from journalists and students to podcasters and business people.
AT 2020 USB is another amazing condenser mic. Audio-Technica brings amazing quality at pretty low prices and intelligibility with modern convenience. This USB condenser microphone features low-mass diaphragm, custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response.
My final choice is Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone. They say you can create unparalleled recordings with this mic. Blue Yeti is the first THX-Certified microphone and features a proprietary tri-capsule technology to produce crystal sounds and studio-quality recordings. Another cool feature of this mic is that it can record in stereo mode.
