  1. I am recording some home made audio track and have no any experience/knowledge chosing any mic before so any help would be great.

    Take a look HERE for a range of mic`s costing from a few pounds to a few hundred pounds.

    A lot depends on what kind of thing you are intending to do.

    If it`s just a little recording for your own use then one of the cheaper options would be ok.

    If on the other hand it for a more professional project then you`d be better off with a good quality mic costing around 80 to 100 pounds upwards.

    Regards Howard :cool: :cool:

    Shure SM57 and SM58 are 2 of the best generic dynamic type work-horse microphones made. They're Lo-Z so you'll need an impedance matching transformer to hook it up to yer PC.
