I wanna record music and I'm on a fairly tight budget. The samson go mic doesn't seem bad, but the blue snowball has a stand. also does anyone know how to record quality music? like should i record singing and piano together or should i record them separately?

    Hey, welcome to Music.SE! Recommendations for equipment are off topic here because they generally require an opinion. Your last question seems like it would work well here. Commented Jul 9, 2015 at 17:42

1 Answer 1


As I have learned recently, posting my opinion on specific brands is frowned upon here. What I CAN tell you is that a $100 usb condenser Mic is going to be money well spent if you have no recording equipment at all and have a very small budget.

Your last question is subjective as well. It really depends on your post production capabilities and the sound you want.

The answer: Try both methods. Create two projects and whichever method is best for you is the best method.

Edit: rereading your post I noticed you want to know how to record "quality sounds" which makes me think it's your first time doing this. You've got a bit of a learning curve ahead, and any answer here isn't going to do you justice until you dive in and experience specific problems. I wish you the best of luck and welcome you to the endless search for tone :) good luck!
