I would like to make a professional voice recording of myself talking. I am a novice and have had a lot of bad luck trying to succeed in this endeavor. I need to know the following: What would be a decent unidirectional microphone for voice? What headset should I choose that is of good quality and wouldn't hurt my ears from wearing it a long time? What recording device would you recommend for a single track, mono, yet of, high quality so that the recording would be pristine? In other words, the silences between sentences (and there are lots of silences) would be without shhhhh sounds or pops? The recording device needs to be connected to my computer so that I can then edit the recording. What sound editor should I use that is easy to figure out? I need to keep the cost as low as possible without compromising the sound quality. Any additional advice or techniques would be most appreciated as Murphy is working overtime on sabotaging my efforts. I thank you kindly.
