I am a professional multi-instrumentalist and I am looking to start recording some of my own music. When I perform live, I've always been a guest and used the host's sound system so I haven't invested in any audio equipment of my own yet.
I am looking for an entry-level, student-budget (below $200), all-around microphone that would be good with instruments ranging anywhere from a double bass (my primary instrument), both bowed and plucked, to a fife, as well as a lever harp with its varied pitches/frequencies.
I plan to do the recording with a Raspberry Pi (this is the model I have), the pisound HAT, and probably Ardour and/or Audacity. Because I am using the pisound as my audio interface (and can't afford a different one), it can't be a powered mic.
If you could list a few with both pros and cons, that would be absolutely amazing!
