I need to record voice audio and capture into my Computer. Any suggestions for this setup? Should I be using a sound card in the machine or capture through my AVID breakout box? Any microphone suggestions? Thanks!
Option 1 Go to a music store like sam ash or guitartown and pick up a studio style mic with a USB port. (only limitation is the cable length) then use a standard audio recording program you probably already have and save as a wav file... i hope you know how to do the rest.
Option 2 an appropriate mic with XLR, connect up to your capture card or your camera which has 1394 out. (this way you can use your typical video software to capture)
Mic suggestion --- what is your budget? The more you spend the better the mic. (traditionally)
