Microphone suggestion for a friend.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
One of my friends is starting to work on a lengthy animation in Flash, and she needs a decent microphone to get good quality sound out of it. I'm not exactly the expert on computer audio, so I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

most of the time the highest quality computer microphones are actually on gaming headsets such as sennheisers or dsp's

Look into those ;D

The soundcard is just as important as well for reproducing good quality sound from the mic input!
