I was looking to buy a mic to record with on my laptop, and I was thinking about the Samson Go Mic. Anybody use it before?

 

Thanks

When you say interface what do you mean by that? I'm new to all this stuff. By the way the "Samson Go Mic" is amazing for the price. It was only like $38 from Amazon.com. Here a video of the first recording I did.

I've heard some good things about the Samson C03U usb mic not sure about the Go though.

 

As Ken says you'd be better off with a good standard mic and audio interface (usb). I like my SE2200A condensor. Not too expensive either (Does need phantom power though). Shure SM58 is still pretty good too and they're cheaper. If you're really on a budget I have heard some quite good recordings where someone has used a mic on their headsets! :)

You may consider buying a zoom field recorder with stereo mics. I got great results from mine, and it  hooks up to my computer with logic or garageband easily.  They also have xlr inputs to use a more expensive mic if you desire, and you can still use it as an interface for your computer.

how about setting a good effect so as to produce a sound that sounds more fun? whether just add reverb? thank you. :rolleyes:

That would depend on your setup. If you want something that's just for home recordings, any microphone and an enclose space should be good. If you want a kind of recording that would sound like a studio-type recording, i would suggest an interface as what Ken Ng mentioned.

Hmm... I think that would come at the editing process already. Again, an enclosed room would do most of the work for you. Either use Audacity (Personally I use this) or adobe audition.
