I noticed the connector isn't something you can connect to a standard PC sound input. Is there such thing as a converter that can be used? Or do I need to buy a new sound card? I don't believe there are any sound cards out there with such input.
SysAdmin.xyz Having severs with customer data on it without proper monitoring is like having one night stand without using protections - eventually, there will be an 'oh s**t!' moment.
Yes, it is primary used for voice recording. Since I'm pretty amateur at this, I am going to forgo the mbox option for now.
Thank you! Exactly what I am looking for!
Also, what is the ideal way of connecting multiple mics to a single input? Or is this not advised?
if you buy an mbox you can plug the mic straight into there. it also supports other connections from the XLR range too if you ever want to plug other sound equipment into it. then obviously the mbox connects to ur pc either through USB or FW.
If you are looking to get into recording, then invest into a 4-8channel mixer and a proper sound card. The things said above make you lose signal, which equal to quiter/worse recording. A small board from even mackie will do wonders for you in this situation.
Also, if you want to do just voice recording, go look up the Blue Snowball. It is a high quality usb mic that I absolutely love for just simple podcasts and commercials. With the right software (garageband from mac is a simple cheap one) you can actually have all the board features w/in the program w/o needing an actual board.
Feel free to msg me if you use pc to record and I can point you in the right direction there as well.
If you want to record multiple mics to your computer, you pretty much need to get something like an mbox. Your package from guitar center that you linked to has XLR mic connections. Most computers do not come with this type of connection built in and getting a converter from XLR to a computer mic/line-in jack is not recommended, as recoyle said, it degrades the audio quality. I do amateur voice over work for work, I use a USB condenser mic (single source), which I have found to great. The Blue Snowball mentioned above is also a great choice. I also have an mbox for recording music (multiple sources).
