Hybrid mic

I want a mic for recording, i want to build a self made sample pack, i think it will help me learn about micing and recording etc. but also strike creativity

i want to record knocks, bumps, gasps, breaths, punches, doors slamming, kicking walls, screaming, the outside, cars, and maybe a few instruments but its just for general purpose to be honest, i dont want to pay more then 40-50 for a mic, or more than 80 if its a set with pop filters and stands and all that shit.

Thanks

Re: Hybrid mic

40-50? Its gonna be tough to find quality mics in that price range.

You want to record the outside? well, the most transportable and cheapest route I could suggest is getting a handheld recorder. Here are a couple that fall around that price tag.

If you are looking for just a microhphone between 40-50, Here are a few:

Re: Hybrid mic

It really depends on what you want to record. You need to keep in mind the source material, the desirable polar patterns, the sensitivity of the mic, the frequency response, weather it can use a windscreen or not, the maximum SPL, and the signal-to-noise ratio.

I'd say go with some type of condenser w/ switchable polar patterns (cardioid, super cardioid, omni-directional at least), preferably with a response of 20Hz-20kHz to cover every possible sound source, and a high signal-to-noise ratio, especially when recording outside. When looking for mics, try to find one that more or less has these features.

An all-around good AND cheap (40-50) microphone doesn't really exist. Generally, the more expensive mics are more "all around" then the cheaper "one-trick-pony" ones.

I think it really depends how quality of a microphone you are looking for.

Edit: Hey I was looking on that website you posted. This one seems promising, and its a stereo mic.

Re: Hybrid mic

Thanks for checking it out, but 140 is to much, i only want it as a fun project, and monitors and maschine are coming first on my wish list!

I'll probally just wing it and buy one of the 40 T-Bone ones on Thomann.de
