First off, if this post is against any rules please remove it. I am looking to invest in a good studio mic for my computer. I am very uneducated on what mics are good and what to look for when purchasing one. I just wanted to learn on what mics are good and reliable. I won't be doing any video recording just the normal talking to my friends on Dolby. Thank you for any help in advance!

good afternoon dear pvtires,


it is not clear to me if your looking for a vocal or an instrument microphone and what is your budget


you can buy a no brand "studio like" microphone for less than 100 euros or you can buy a true pro level microphone for 2500 euros


a very good microphone even for a pro studio use is the ribbon mxl r144


a very good usb microphone is the audio technica at2020 usb and the blue yeti pro usb


all those mics are really good even for a pro use


for microphone types, recording with microphones and general question about microphone types and faqs just simply search through youtube for :


microphone types and uses


basic microphone techniques


recording with microphones


ribbon microphones


why ribbon microphones


tips on studio microphones


recording on a budget with microphones


microphone for beginners


home recording studio


microphone buying guide


you can also search through the net with any of the above mentioned keys and also you can search for microphone types in pdf and recording with microphones in pdf 


good luck

For general chat theres a lot that you can get, I use my webcam mic to chat with my friend while playing games and stuff, i have a $50 webcam (older version of the Logitech B525) and the sound quality and sensitivity are great for what I use it for, he can hear me (and everything around me) very well without any change in settings.


is it "studio" quality? no not really, but unless you have a quiet room the only thing youll get with a studio mic is much more ambient noise picked up.
