I have a MXL 770 Cardioid Condenser mic, and I want to hook it up to my Acer Aspire 5 to start recording music. Is there any extra steps I need to take? Do I need phantom power supplies? Would it be easier to get a usb mic? I'm as noob to this as it can get. I bought this laptop so I could start recording music and have really had no guidance so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I want to record both vocals and acoustic guitar with the microphone if possible.
Hi Recording.org community! I wanted to reach out to your collective wisdom! Is it possible/recommended to record classical instruments (I am a professional flutist) with both ribbons and condensers?? I have seen this in a couple of places eg. on the Royer website they have a recording of a flutist with a SF-24 and 2 Rode NT-6 omnis flanking on a stereo bar.
I record with a Behringer C-3 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone at home. And I don't have an acoustically treated space to record in - I do the maximum amount of soundproofing I can possibly do at home.
Here's a sample of what the mixes currently sound like:
I've seen people using condenser microphones at home and getting more fuller sounds with zero background noise. Like this cover by WOTE:
the burning question...you all know this..and i think its a culture thing...sure you can tell me.
I have this problem with recording vocals. I use the Rode NT1A condenser mic and a Behringer Xenyx x1222 as a sound card trying to record on my laptop's DAW (Logic X Pro). The singer I recording with has a really powerful voice with very rich and strong low and high notes.
The problem here is that the microphone does not capture the full range of her voice and the mic sounds high pitched. It cuts the low frequencies and I can't hear the rich sound that I normally hear when she is actually singing live. Any ideas?
We're having lots of comments that seem to be stating an almost 'rule' that if you have noises in your recording space that you don't want in the recording, then you go dynamic, and not condensers - and it's been said in many topics that this is an established fact.
I personally don't happen to agree with this, and I've spent some time trying to find examples of the science from respected sources, and I've failed. Loads of unsubstantiated comment, but no facts from any of the popular manufacturers, apart from the obvious ones.

We are thrilled to introduce the RØDE TF-5.
Designed in collaboration with legendary, Grammy Award-winning sound engineer Tony Faulkner, the TF-5 represents a new standard in small diaphragm condenser microphones.
I am setting up my home studio, and would like a recommendation for one or more for two different applications: video game voice over, and clean opera vocals.
Recommendations can either be for one multipurpose microphone, or two sepparate microphones for each application
Here are the conditions.
Studio: Home studio (working on building a vocal booth)
1. Video game voice over.
2. Clean Opera vocals for Dramatic Baritone (D2-G4 range)
