newbie question: couple of mic questions
Number one, what is a 'balanced' mic?
Second, can someone help me find the right mic for my budget recording needs? As well as micing my amp, I want to record a bunch of acoustic instruments (guitars, mandolin, piano, wind instruments, percussion, etc). My singing is so bad that I am not tempted to capture it. How can I best spend, say $150 to do all of the above at a basic level?
