Rode Podmic is about the best you can get for under $100. BUT, it would require an audio interface that can take an XLR connection. Blue Yeti is about the best bang for your buck for a USB mic.My birthday is in about 12 days now and I'm really wanting a mic so I can talk when I screen record videos with people actually being able to hear what I say. Partly why I haven't talked in my videos cause I don't have a mic that's not built into something else like my phone or computer, and the other part is just being a bit nervous that people will make fun of my voice. So I wanna try and ask for a mic for one of my birthday gifts so that my voice would at least (hopefully) sound better when it's being recorded, but I need options that aren't super expensive.
What did you end up getting?I FINALLY got my wireless mic, definitely a much needed addition to my tech, as I was using the ear buds that typically come with iPhones, now I just need to find the sweet spot when pinning it to my T-shirt, meaning no matter where I turn or what I do, it’s crystal clear
Now all I have to do is upgrade my steam powered computer, do something about my lighting, and I’m all good to go
Let us know how it works out! I found some interesting A/V stuff there that never gets exported because of the challenges with the various certifications.Whatever the vloggers here in mainland use, it’s quite a high quality one, apparently, I’m gonna give it some use, see if it’s up for the job, but so far so good
I requested the Rode Wireless Go as a gift for my birthday tomorrow from my wife since a lot of my content is on the go in the back yard. Let's see how that turns out.I love my Rode Wireless Go. It's great quality for the price and you can use it on a DSLR and phone, if you get the adapter. : https://amzn.to/32kzoSb Only five years ago, this set-up would have cost $800, as there were only pro equipment available, but now it's down to $200 so much more attainable. If you're just starting out and not moving anywhere you can get a $15 to $20 lav mic from Amazon, which I used for a years.
Let's hope she can get one! They are back-ordered almost everywhere right now. I would strongly suggest getting the go lav with it so you can put the unit on your belt and run the mic through your shirt.I requested the Rode Wireless Go as a gift for my birthday tomorrow from my wife since a lot of my content is on the go in the back yard.

Good suggestion! It looked like Amazon had the white version in stock and I'm fine with that.Let's hope she can get one! They are back-ordered almost everywhere right now. I would strongly suggest getting the go lav with it so you can put the unit on your belt and run the mic through your shirt.
Have you checked out Mike Russell's Audacity tutorial to make your voice sound better? It made a big difference for me.You can use a free program called audacity, It record great audio and I personally use it!
Happy to hear it's been working! Do you have to sync in post or is it in cameraI've fixed that by buying BOYA lev. mic which is cheap and good quality and instaled on my phone aplication Motive Audio which is a grat aplication for sound recording made by Shure company.
After that no more problem. Video I shoot with camera and audio with my phone. This is a good choice but also you beed to control audio recording because of audio gain level.
For me it helped a lot.
I sync in post, that is my usual practice, but sound is coming much better. I've learned that audio production is as well needed as video so I'm keeping it like that in my work.Happy to hear it's been working! Do you have to sync in post or is it in camera
Good for you! This is a great investment in yourself! So many people get audio wrong.I sync in post, that is my usual practice, but sound is coming much better. I've learned that audio production is as well needed as video so I'm keeping it like that in my work.
Every audio recording before ti comes in Premiere it goes in programs for audio design to cut all higher frequencies, make all compression needed, mute all not needed sounds and make the tone color which fits video the best with equalizers. That is longer process but outcome is great.
After that in Premiere just sync is needed and it turns out great.
My mentors for that are audio engineers which are really good in that field and they tech me a lot. One more time my search for knowledge opened one more interesting door for my self.
Hm, thanks, it is always good to gainbthe knowledge and go one step up. I grow out in the circle of musical producers so studio was not unknow to me even when I was much younger. But now when I do things like audio design I can undersyand sound much better.Good for you! This is a great investment in yourself! So many people get audio wrong.
