Subject: RE: Tech: Recording Solo Unaccompanied Voice
On the subject of microphones: try to buy one that is a Hypercardioid (or supercardioid) pattern. This means they only record what's directly in front of them and nothing else. As a result, they will pick up much more of your voice and much less of the room you're in. So you end up with a clearer, better recording.

They Beyerdynamic M69 is a great microphone from this point of view (same goes for its more expensive big brother, the M88).

What's your budget?
