  1. This is very intriguing, You are a quite skilled blogger. I have joined your rss feed and look forward to looking for far more of your wonderful post. Also, I’ve shared your internet web site in my social networks!

  2. I wanted a USB microphone to use for amateur home voice recording via my computer. After some research, I decided on this Audio Technica product. I’m glad I did!

    The mic and stand comes well-packaged, is easy to assemble and is truly plug-and-play. In less than 10 minutes, I set it up, plugged it in, fired up audacity software and performed a test recording. It sounded great with no tweaking required.

    In later use, I noticed a problem with popping P’s, so I picked up a cheap pop filter from a local shop. Now my Audio Technica AT2020USB mic works even better.

  3. Hey! I’ve just stopped by to thank you for this great post. Take care!
