I want to record sound on my MacBook Pro Late 2011 for screencasts, and I need a lavalier microphone for this. I have been looking at the JK MIC-J 044 Lavalier microphone, and from what I can tell, this should work out of the box. Since I have a very limited knowledge of audio in general, I would appreciate if anyone could confirm if this microphone would work directly with my laptop?
Or do I need a USB audio device such as the Griffin iMic? Even if this device is not strictly needed, would it improve the audio quality of my recordings? Because in that case, I want to go ahead and use it.
Thanks a lot for any advice.
