Maybe a Shure SM58. An SM48, which is extremely similar, can be had for fifty bucks. You’ll have a little money left over!
I’ll assume you’re not on stage making your recordings, and you have complete control over ambient sound, and you have good headphones. So you’re looking for, I’m assuming, a studio mic for vocals.
Cheap street is the SM58. It’s a standard mic, with a standard polar pattern, and is usually used on stage, but since we don’t know what your singer sounds like, what your singer prefers, or if you’re looking for a particular sound, why not have a standard-performing mic? It won’t cost $500 – maybe $100.
It’s far more important how your room sounds, how your singer Continue reading “If I can only afford one microphone under $500 to record vocals with what should I get?”
A Quora answer by Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit”:
The problem with AA is something that happens very early, when a person, a “sufferer,” is first introduced to the idea, sees a pamphlet or checks out his first meeting … the system can easily lose its credibility and feel either like it’s extreme, or members are jumping to conclusions …
People are simply scared away before they join.
In my book, “A Candle Lit,” I call them “leavers-before-they-enter.”

In celebration, as you probably guessed, Continue reading “Hello Kitty Halloween Theme”
My stepson, Todd barber, produced this video, along with his wife Nina! They make herbal skin care products; they really believe in what they do, and it shows!

If a Dog Walked Into a Bar
If a dog walked into a bar
Would it be smoking a cigar
It just isn’t something I can ask my cat
‘Cause I don’t think she knows about that
She doesn’t smoke, because it’s addictin’
Somethin’ she learned when she was just a little kitten
So that’s that!
Besides, unless he’s an unusual bloke
Most of the dogs I know don’t smoke
At least not out in the open
And they don’t have any lips
He’d have to hold the thing in his teeth
And it’d probably just make him sick Continue reading “If a Dog Walked Into a Bar”

Sea, sand, walks so sweet and
Of course, the blueberries

Into the wind Continue reading “Then There Were the Blueberries”
