I wrote yesterday that I’m looking for a nice microphone.
I decided to go mostly with the setup suggested by The Roadhouse:
- MXL 990 Condensor Mic ($50)
- Behringer eurorack UB802 Mixer/Preamp ($50)
After assorted accessories (mic stand, XLR cable, pop filter, etc.) I wound up spending $143 at Musician’s Friend. I just need a 1/4″ to 1/8″ adapter cable yet from RadioShack to hook this up to the audio input on a sound card (or my iMic USB gadget).
Librivox sounds great and I look forward to volunteering.
