If you plan on recording songs and podcasts at home, one of the most essential things that you would need is a good quality microphone. And investing in a USB microphone is a great way to start. USB microphones are a great choice for beginners who want to focus solely on recording vocals.
While XLR microphones need an audio interface to work and cannot be connected directly to a computer, USB microphones can directly connect to your PC using a USB cable and do not need any other extra equipment for the same. Let us have a look at some of the best USB microphones that you can buy in India.
