I am a beginner rapper and I want start recording my rap vocals to hip hop beats. As of now, I have a budget that can buy me the best available USB condenser microphone - Samson C01u Pro mic. Does it works well like any other XLR or Phantom powered microphones?
I have Audacity software to start with and I have downloaded some free rap beats available with royalty free tags.
Do I really need to buy the expensive microphones or Samson C01u Pro works well? Any music production experts please help me.
