I couldn't believe a USB mic was that goodRecorded in my apartment with a friend.
This clip was made with only the following gear.
Audio Technica AT2020 USB Cardioid Condenser
Logic + the built in EQ / Compression + built in shaker loop / cello / piano sounds
an old beater powerbook I bought for 250 bucks on craigslist, LOL!
All for less than....$700? maybe...
The Snowball isn't a bad USB mic at all. I use it for ventrilo, recording regular voice stuff, and for recording acoustic guitar. I'm quite interested in the other two you've mentioned as I've read quite a few good things about them^thanks!
I'm debating between the yeti, the snowball, and the AT2020. The 2020 is the most "conventional", but I've read some really nice things about the yeti.
I did a quick search but didn't find one, but I'd be interested in buying a cable that ran USB (the more squarish end) to XLR/1/4" so that I could plug my Snowball into my recording interface.
