This mic needs to be connected using the supplied XLR cable. It requires an amp or mixer with phantom-powered input.

if you don't know what is XLR, then you probably don't have phantom power, which is required for this mic. So it's not for you.

I would not recommend this for anything with that high of decibel output.
Why wouldn't you feed High decibel signals into this microphone? Your input gain level on your mixer can always be turned down to lower the sensitivity of the microphone to accommodate High decibel signals. Alternatively you can record low decibel signal by turning up the input gain knob on the mixer thus increasing the sensitivity level. This is why you need a mixer or sound interface for this microphone. There is no input gain setting housed within the microphone. I have this microphone and it work really great for recording but knowing how to use it is crucial.

I would agree with you if it was a higher quality mic. I just personally wouldn't use this to do that... Though I'm sure it's feasible.

I think you have to work with what you have and your budget.. just roll with the punches and make it happen.

If you have the budget opt for a better mic though if you're doing that. Just my two cents.

Does nobody Google for themselves anymore? Educate yourself, people! You will learn far more practical knowledge than a small spoon feeding here.

If you're looking for something to plug straight into your computer to record podcast or vocals I wouldn't recommend this. As the title states this is a studio mic it'll need 48v as someone already stated.

By the time you've bought the interface and cables to hook upto your computer you'll be at around 70-100. Get on Amazon as search for computer microphone. The blue ones are pretty decent quality.

If you do get a condenser microphone I'd recommend a pop shield too. Condensers are sensitive to the force created from the air coming out of your mouth, causing the recording to pop/clip, hence pop shield. Also don't drop it or swing it around your head, you'll want an sm58 if you're doing that.

This is a great suggestion. Hopefully this gets thumbed up to the top of the page. Good info for people. 👍👍👍

Practical advice is always better than anecdotal. I can easily read that this is "suggested for vocals and acoustic" but the specs seemed to indicate that it could probably be used to mic an amp as well. Why trust one forum over another? I'm glad to have opinions from fellow SDers as well as any others I come across via Google search.

XLR is the basic cable of all stage microphones. There are adapters to 1/4 inputs and even usb inputs. But honestly, a good adapter is going to be the same price as this microphone.
Condenser mics needs phantom power so this is meant to connect to a mixer or audio interface that provides power and has preamp for microphone level in.

The mic itself would be fine for that. BUT, you'll need a mixer with this (for phantom power/XLR connection) AND the mixer would need a USB interface to your computer. And probably some driver software.

If you're thinking you can connect this mic directly to a USB input on your computer, you can't do that.

You need an interface or means to supply power and record with this mic. I have this m audio interface that is brand new. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08Q1V77NR/

I see so much bad information thumbed up here by others who don't know because it sounds "truthy". Take any advice your read here, or any other non subject-specific forum with huge grains of salt. There's good and bad info on all forums, but I'd much rather get my audio info from and audio/recording forum than from a deals forum.
