|I went to my local music store recently and bought some entry level recording equipment. I've been recording using my laptop microphone, which is pretty, I think, for a laptop mike. But just doesn't give me the sound quality I want.
After trying some different combinations at the local music store I decided to get the Tube MP and the Band. The Tube MP is only a 1 channel device, but that should be all I need. There is still room for improvement in sound quality, but short of spending a lot of money this combination seems to satisfy my current recording needs.
The Tube MP gives me a big improvement in sound, but if you listen to professional grade youtube recordings it will noticably fall short. But for $115 it seems to give a good break into the recording hobby.
The Band pickup actually is one of the better pickups I've tried. It is about $175, but worth it for good recording. It is still limited by my entry level recording device (Tube MP) but should good when I decide to buy a better one.
Looking forward to recording my next video with this!
