Hi guys. I'm new here and i'm looking for a good beginner mic. I am a music producer, sort of. I have a bunch of wannabe rappers at my school who want me to record them rapping and make a beat for them. I said why not, makes me money. I am also a singer, but I will also be recording electric and acoustic guitar. I also do some game commentary and pod-casting. I run this show for my school called "3 somewhat disgruntled sports commentators", its actually pretty funny. The way I want to run it this year is have one mic in the middle of the table and people just sit around it and talk, so we only need one mic. That's why i'm leaning towards the yeti, because it is omni-directional. I do like the atr2500 because it is cheaper and smaller. How much of a sound difference is there? My major turn-offs with the yeti is it has such an odd shape compatibility with different accessories may be difficult. It is also pretty big, which isn't a huge problem, but if the quality is not much different from say the atr2500 then I don't know why I would pay extra for such an awkward and more expensive mic. Also, are there any other usb mics that would be better? Must be under $100 but preferably under $75, and also must be usb. Thanks guys, I appreciate it!
