The internet is full of awful voice recordings. That may sound harsh, but it’s very true.

Now that pretty much every device includes some kind of microphone, it’s easy to be lazy and neglect this critical element of recording equipment.

To produce good content, high quality audio is key. To achieve high quality audio, you need to use a dedicated microphone.

Of course, there are many elements to making a high quality voice recording, not just the microphone. But this is perhaps the easiest element for us to control and improve.

Other elements such as recording technique, EQ and compression are vital for manipulating the sound that the microphone captures. You can’t completely change the sound with these other things, only improve it.

The character and tone of a voice recording is decided by the choice of microphone—ensure you get it right.

  • Dynamic microphones are great for getting warm sounding voice recordings.
  • Condenser microphones are great for getting clear and natural sounding voice recordings.

A Dream Delivered | Folds of Honor


by Budweiser


Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, over 87% do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Since 2011, Budweiser has donated a total of $12 million toward educational scholarships in partnership with Folds of Honor.

Their programs help support private education for elementary, middle and high school students as well as higher education opportunities for spouses and children. We honor those who fought for our freedom by serving the families they leave behind.

This summer, Budweiser has been honoring those who protect our freedom to dream. Budweiser delivered a life-changing scholarship to a family who has sacrificed for their country and for each other with the help of Folds of Honor and actor, Adam Driver. #ThisBudsForYou
