Hey looking for some microphone suggestions for voice and voice-over type stuff. I used to have a Behringer Xenyx Q502USB with an Audio Technica AT2020 setup but it burnt down late last year. I am just getting back on my feet and I would like to make a purchase this weekend. I was thinking about a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 1/AT2020 combo or a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen/AT2020 combo. The Rode NT-USB USB crossed my mind too. What are your thoughts and suggestions?

i use a scarlett 3rd gen with a shure sm7b and a ss-1 pre-amp. I had the at2020 and was a great mic. My father is a musician and gave me a shure sm7b as a gift and that's the only reason I don't still use the at2020. I used it for streaming and gaming. People would constantly comment on how nice the mic sounded. 100% recommend it. I know it's a popular mic among streamers and youtubers as well.

My bad, didn't see the date on this.

@Pings, you already have the AT2020, so I would suggest the Solo 3rd Gen instead of an USB mic. However, if you're sure you'll never need the Air-mode introduced on the 3rd-Gen and the 1-2dB improvement in THD and dynamics will not matter much for you, then you could also save some money and go with the Solo Gen2 as well (or get the 2i2 Gen2).

@Pings,

I suggest using audiotestkitchen.com to help you decide, it is a good resource.

Otherwise Lewitt has some good affordable mics for vocals & voice overs.

Hope you have a great day !
