Hi guys ^^
Don't know if you've missed me, but now I'm back at the forum :p

So, I'm looking for a mic that I can plug in to my computer (via an USB port or something). I've tried to play in my normal mic, but it sounds really bad and loud (I can't change the volume on that stupid thing).
I’m probably just going to use it for music, and I need it to work for
-singing
-guitar
-saxophone (duh ^^)

Do anyone know a brand or a thype I can use? And if it's possible to buy in Finland or Sweden ^^
Hugs and kisses

New account? Did you buy a BW M2 Tenor? If so, welcome back!

USB isn't the best way to record IMO. However, I would suggest a Shure SM-57 or SM-58 Mic with a XLR (Female) to USB Cable.

Using an audio interface would be a better option between the microphone and the computer.

EDIT: The microphones I suggest are dynamic and don't require Phantom Power

My Zoom H2 recorder can be used as a mic/ interface and records my sax, blues harps, flute and saw (etc) very well indeed

That's probably a better solution than recording direct to a computer :thumb:

Found it! In the bottom of the lego box! Excellent :w00t:

I was going to ask, then I saw your sig!! I guess she wanted to to record her version of 'The Yellow Brick Road' ;}

Zoom H2 will also act as a mic straight into the pc via USB.

Good solution and you should be able to get one cheaply as it's just been superseded by the H2n.
