So, I know this question will probably be really far-fetched. However, I was wondering what I should look for in a low-budget microphone for making video game sound effects, as well as a studio. When I say "decent in cost", I likely mean less than $50, but I could stretch that a little if necessary. The lower, the better.
Is stereo or mono better?
Should I use a portable voice recorder?
Are there any brands that are decent in cost and have a good quality?
Are there any types of sounds that are better to be made on the computer (JFXR/Audacity)?
As far as my studio:
Should I put up sound absorbers?
Or should I use sound diffusers?
Or a mix of both?
Does it need to be a large or small room?
My current plan is to refurbish an old tree house. Would there be any complications with this?
Of course, if there are any other questions/important facts that I am missing, please let me know. Thank you!
