I am planning on buying a dynamic Mic for professional online calls. I know that I could easily go with a headset for this. But as someone who always takes future into account, I want to buy a mic which will allow me record my guitar songs and possibly voice recordings for my youtube channel in the future.
I know nothing about audio stuff. Therefore, I've been doing google search since yesterday about this topic and few questions popped up so far. I couldn't find clear answers to them so I decided to ask here.
- Do I need a USB Audio Interface to run a Dynamic Mic with PC? (Even if I am going to use it only for online calls in the beginning!)
- If I can use this type of Mic without USB Audio Interface, then which cable / connector should I choose to fit it into one of my PC inputs; XLR to 3.5 mm socket OR XLR to USB?
- I have a tight budget, so, is there any cheapest solution to eliminate USB Audio Interface for now? (An average performance that I may get from the Mic is acceptable for online calls for the beginning)
Note: I also considered having a Mic with non-detachable USB output, but as I said earlier, I want to have something that I can use professionally in the future. (If I am wrong on that, I am open to any ideas about this type of Mics)
