Also, an important thing to note: Condenser microphones require “Phantom Power”, which we have discussed in my guide to building a home studio here. One reviewer complained that his MXL770 was not compatible with the Scarlett 2i2. He said “It doesn’t work”. There is a little 48V Phantom Power button on the 2i2. (If you look at the top of this post, the first picture clearly illustrates this point). Please make sure you press that button before writing negative reviews. THE MIC WILL NOT WORK OTHERWISE. Thanks!!
Well that’s about it folks! That’s all she wrote. If you guys have any more specific questions about the best home studio microphone, feel free to leave them down below in the comments or Contact me. I’d be more than happy to speak with you!
