Loved that mic. I upgraded to a Blue Bluebird with a USB mixer and wish I had kept the Yeti. It's just so stupid simple to use and I have all sorts of latency bullshit to contend with on the more-expensive equipment.

EDIT: People here should do some research into the difference between dynamic and condenser microphones. If you're not doing podcasts, voiceovers, let's plays, or something requiring crystal-clear quality in a very quiet area, a condenser mic is probably not for you. These things will pick up noises you didn't even realize your room had.

Noisy PC fans? It'll record that.

Running the AC? It'll record that.

Farted? It'll definitely record that.

I used to have a dedicated sound booth (i.e., five twin-sized mattresses built into a booth) to isolate vocals from ambient noise. It's a helluvalotta work to use a condenser mic properly.

Love this mic. Can't recommend it enough. I got mine at a pawn shop (which you obviously have to be careful about - don't buy a used one unless you can return it) for $120. You would be hard pressed to find a better mic for the price.

SM58's are a great catch-all mic for pretty much any situation, but if you're looking to branch out recording-wise you'll want to go in one of two directions - a stereo pair of condensers for recording acoustic instruments, or a large diaphragm condenser for recording vocals.

Those links are the ones I went with when I was starting out, and they served me well. They're both versatile mics in their own way, and they can help you practice proper positioning, etc. Can't go wrong!

As for drums, that's a whole other ballgame. I'd recommend befriending someone who records drums first, and learning from them, before taking the dive into that world :)

Thanks for the reply. I had a recommendation to step up to the Scarlett 8i6 if I could swing it. I'm currently leaning towards that particular version.

In terms of the microphone I keep going back and forth but I'd like to order something as early as tonight/tomorrow but won't rush it if I'm not ready.

've seen a lot of positive response to the SM57 and 58 for a solid mic at a good price. I've also seen some other recommendations for the following:

AT2020 & 2035
Kel Audio HM-2D
Shure PG27

and on the upper end:

Shure SM-27
Blue Bluebird

I wouldn't mind spending a little more on the mic, as I mentioned before, it will be a gift. However I don't want to spend money just to spend money. I would want to know that I would be getting a noticeable difference in the quality and potentially the amount of work that would be needed to be done to the vocals on the back end.

There seem to be a lot of recommendations for the Bluebird as well. How would that mic and the Scarlett 8i6 work out?

In terms of cords / pop filter / stand, I was look at the ones that are recommended to go with the Bluebird

Skype can run multiple instances with a startup parameter, allowing several webcams (one for map, one for table, etc). You can use Skype or Discord for audio with an area microphone: I use a Bluebird with preamp for the microphone, but you can go much cheaper with a USB condenser if you don't have audio gear already.

I use This one I think the problem came when I was mixing this, I also probably had the gain lower than I should have.

I liked your beat man! It has a dope lofi feel to it, the samples are amazing mainly cuz I'm a gamer, no complaints!

I looks like he has this microphone. But hes still using the laptop mic. What a man.
