Quote from: digitalguru on January 24, 2019, 03:06:29 pmI got this, which was cheap, thinking I'll send it back if it was terrible:https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0743BTD1Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09__o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1But was pleasantly surprised! It's nowhere near the greatest mic (and I used to be a sound engineer, so I 've heard a lot of great mics), but it's pretty decent.
QuoteAs far as my sound card is concerned I have two positions listed in my device manager:1. NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM)2. Realtek High Definition Audio
Quote1. One-directional microphones vs. omnidirectional?

Quote from: archonforest on January 27, 2019, 04:02:06 amAs Oshyan pointed out correctly the recording environment is very important. If you have a correctly set-up environment then even a budget mic will give you good results. But if the recording environment is not good then even the most expensive mic will will let you down.I worked and installed high-end pro audio equipment (speakers, amps...etc) and I built about 10 high end listening rooms with my own hands so I can testify to that how important is the environment.
Quote from: digitalguru on January 27, 2019, 08:32:45 amIf you got an external sound card then you wouldn't need the Realtek drivers also, so you can disable/delete those too, and you should disable the Realtek in the bios also.
QuoteIs it absolutely necessary to disable Realtek when external sound card is present?
