I was a fond fan of this question as soon as I saw it.

The fact that the question was around creating ‘good’ quality voice recordings appealed to me. If there’s one thing I’ve discovered along the way, a ‘bad’ quality voice recording is a sure-fire way to tune out your listener (and/or viewer). The fact is ‘good’ quality audio is necessary, especially when it comes to voice.

That is unless you’re trying to create a deliberately poor-quality recording (more on that later).

So what sort of microphones and software do you need that won’t break the bank? What do you need to get that good quality recording from a home or office?
