Hi guys, I'm stepping into voiceover work and am considering options for recording at home. I already have a Shure PG58, but when testing with Garageband it doesn't sound too good. It's connected directly to my macbook via XLR female / standard jack male cable (quite long), then thru a 3.5mm adapter to the microphone line-in input. A few issues: - The sound volume isn't great. - Occasionally crackly (no pop guard or sponge at all, this is probably it) - At the end of words sometimes the sound fades/cuts off Is it worth pursuing an attempt at using what I've got? E.g. would a preamp or audio interface fix the problem and give good results? This would obviously be the cheaper option, but what I'm after is a professional sound. If I can do this and just get a few extra things (stand, pop guard, maybe something to deaden sound), that would be ideal. I've read mixed things about using this sort of mic for speech but it seems maybe I should be going for a condenser mic instead for this sort of recording - more natural, unaltered sound that picks up all the notes. Failing using the Shure mic, what would people recommend as a professional-sounding (condenser? presumably USB?) mic? Don't want to spend over £130 or so ($200). Thanks in advance for any help people can give. Cheers!
