I am developing a PC software for learning vocabulary and need to record the words to be played in the software. As there are a lot of recordings needed in at least 2 languages I decided to give it a try to make a home studio. The quality which I need I could describe as high but not the highest. The recorded voice must be very clear and sounding naturally.
I am looking for a microphone for such purposes. Initially I think I would need something like SP B1 with Phantom power. My budget for the microphone isn't high - 150-200 $.
My other question is about the recording. I have a Zoom H4 recorder equipped with phantom power. Would recording on this device with external semi profesional microphone give me high quality result? (the records on it withbuilt in microphone is good itself) Is it a good idea? I could also buy a device for the PC but I would need to struggle with the noice from the computer and so on. So I think (in my amateur mind) that there shouldn't be any signifficant differance between recording on a PC or ZOOM H4. Am I wrong?
I will be very very grateful for your advice on above 2 issues,
