So you want to record your vocals and get the best sound possible, but you’re not sure what type of mic you need. In this video, you’ll find out what the best type of microphone for recording vocals is for whatever kind of music or dialogue you’re recording. And for whichever environment you’re recording in.
It’s important to get the right mic for the job because no matter how good your vocal mix is, if you’re starting off with a bad recording, your vocals are never going to sound as good as they could.
