Recording equipment can be pricey. That said, every recording artist wants the best possible sound they can get, preferably at a cost that won’t break the bank. Musictech.net has assembled some picks that are high on sound quality, while also including many that are also affordable too.
The list includes a few hard-working under 100 picks. These include Audio-Technica’s cardioid condenser, the AT2020, sE Electronic’s cardioid dynamic, V3, Shure Distribution’s cardioid dynamic, SM57 and Soundtech’s Apogee Jam 96k.
Lots of items made the mid-range 100-500 range, including microphones, like the Aston Spirit, interfaces, like the Audient, iD14. High end options, for those with more of a wad to blow, included mics like, Sontronics Aria, and interfaces like the Focusrite Red 8Pre.
- When looking for recording equipment, consider funds, midrange and good microphones and interfaces.
- Aston Origin and Audio-Technica AT2020 have very capable microphones that offer good value.
- RME Babyface Pro and PreSonus Studio 192 are two models that can meet your high end needs.
“If you are looking to expand your mic selection, the Spirit is virtually a must-have.””
