    If you mix well enough

    It sucks but it skips the interface process, which is another hundy or 2.

    Do you need a separate interface to hook this up? You don't like USB mics?

    I'm about halfway through your mixtape, btw. Dope.

    Ya for the AKG you need an interface and phantom power and all that expensive shit....but the Samson c01u has one of the best bass pick-ups ive ever used so i use it sometimes too dependin on the beat...i love them both

    Do you think the Blue mic's that bestbuy have for $150 would produce better quality than the Samson?

    You can get ok sound if you can mix, like process vocals and bus effects for a final mix, or you'll sound like moose. No pun

    Better sound is an interface, pref. With phantom power and 1 xlr in. Then a large condensor Mic, or 1 of audiotechnicas more expensive options.

    You still need some general idea of processing vocals

    Obviously, I've never recorded before. I'm just looking to do it for fun, nothing crazy. What would you recommend? I'll cop an interface, preface, whatever. What do you think is a decent setup with decent quality?

    Fiziks dropped a good, and fairly standard setup. Hard to lose with an interface/run by xlr and a nice condenser.

    I appreciate it bro. So what's the verdict? Should I go with one of the Blue series mics? Should I get the phantom power preface or just get the mic?
