If you have ever tried to record audio you will be able to relate to this as it can be a frustrating experience getting things to sound the way you want.   Trying to buy equipment that you will be happy with can be even worse.  Even though I have been recording for years, every time I do it seems as if I learn something new.  During this video, I will try and share some of my past and present experience with various equipment I have tried, as well as a few tips I picked up along the way.  I hope this helps to point you in the right direction and maybe save you some aggravation along the way.  I have posted some affiliate links at the bottom for everything I use and the items I tested.
