So I am thinking about investing in a new mic or mics but have quite a few questions. So I am looking to pick up a new microphone for the use of recording male & female vocals. (Primarily male and mostly acoustic style tracks but also some EDM vocal tracking.) I am also looking to pick up a new mic to record acoustic guitar. I currently own a Electro-Voice Co9 and Shure Sm58 and my current set up is Mic -> Scarlett 2i4 -> Ableton. (Tracking vocals and Guitar seperately.) I am in an untreated room, and have a pair of yamaha Hs8s to monitor. My budget is flexible but I would ideally like to stay sub to ~ 500$ region. My questions are the following: for what I have descirbed is there a microphone you would recommend that do the job on both acoustic guitar and vocals? If not what would you recommend for each individually? at what point does improving my mic become irrelevant if I am only using the scarlett as my AI (instead of a proper microphone preamp) and if my audio skills are lacking at this price range & for my set up will I even notice the difference between the 200$ model of any given mic and the 500$ of that same mic? Ie. since I will be processing the audio in Abelton at what point is it diminishing returns? I understand that I am looking at low end microphones at my price range but I am a broke and trying to avoid a situation where I spend 200$ and regret it because for an extra 200$ there was a massive improvement or on the flip side where I spend 500$ only to not even notice the improvement over the 200$ mic / my 58. Any advice / recomendations / links to articles to read up on are highly appreciated!
