Question relating to...

Usb Mixer

Asked by: bgsj23

I use reason and adobe audition for podcasts, music, etc.

I had planned on just buying a decent USB mic for $60 or $70, but I went to the music shop and they tell me that everything will sound much better with a regular mic through a mixer that hooks up to my USB input. Is this true? With the programs I've got, wouldn't a USB mic sound just as good or close to as good?
Which one would you recommend

The data transfer rate in some USB devices will make things sound bad. USB 2. 0 should be preffered, and do some research via audio sites before you buy.

USB Mic's are pretty new technology in comparison to regular microphones. You may be able to get a better sounding Mic for cheaper then the USB version.

If you intend on recording music and things, a seperate USB device with a mixer may sound a lot better, as you could potentially record guitar and mic at the same time
