I've decided to address the mic problem first. With saying that, I'm planning on buying a new mic. Can I get any suggestions on good mics that will give out a better sound that won't indeed break the bank?
I would go to your local music store and try out a Rode & Blue Yeti condenser mic. I think the Yeti is surprisingly great for a mic under $100. I had a voice over person come over recently and she preferred the Yeti to a Neumann u87ai! Getting a sound you like will depend on what works for your voice, so try before you buy!
