My XP desktop pc uses a cheapo Sweex mic which collects dictated speech and anything from spkrs but it is a crummy animal. If there is a brief silence in speech then when the voice restarts it truncates the start of the new word (I assume this is because it is dynamic?) So I suffer.
I also have for my Dixon's taperecorder a lapel omni-directional mic which has an AA battery in circuit. This is superb for audio taping. But if plugged into pc soundcard it seems weak at the knees, no ooomph. If it needs an amplifier in circult plz say so.
Or, on limited budget (say £30 max), I could buy a better mic for puter. Uni-directional, to record both sound & music (position it either near voice source or close to pc spkr), dry-battery-power not objected to. Have scoured Maplin & Novatech sites but too much choice! Have also done homework at mic on Wikipedia but now completely baffled. Any thoughtz plz guyz? Thanx
Obscurity is a comfortable cloak
