Let’s be real, when you’re a small YouTuber or streamer on a budget, it can be hard getting good equipment for your channel. The Blue Snowball is a budget-friendly mic that will give you good quality audio yet save you money. Why spend 100,200 bucks for a good mic when this mic costs like 50-70 bucks ( price varies depending on your country) and use Audacity, an audio software, to improve the audio and make it sound like a 100 dollar mic? I am a small YouTuber./ Originally when this blog was made (I am currently importing my blog posts from Blogger) I had no money at all to get better stuff. I had to use the sucky mic on my laptop and I got several complaints. I got lucky and won this mic in a giveaway back in 2016.
The mic can be used for anything, commentary, video calls, streaming, console gaming. Just hook the mic into the USB hole in your computer and make it the default audio device on your computer. Right-click on your speaker and go to ‘recording devices.’ Click on the Blue Snowball and go to ‘set default.’ It’s fairly easy to set up.
As I am editing this, we are in the middle of a new normal and most of you have school on zoom and need a good mic, right?
I suggest you get a mic stand because the legs on the snowball aren’t too stable. The stand comes with a pop filter. You need this so when you say certain words you won’t hear the accent. Like when you say a word that starts with ‘P’ for instance and you can hear that. I don’t know how to explain it. The pop filter is so you won’t hear a ‘pop like’ sound when you say a word that starts with ‘P.’
I highly recommend this mic to anyone. Budget or not. YouTuber/Streamer or not. Think about this, you want to land a job and may have a video call interview, you want to be prepared for an interview over video chat. The built-in mic on your computer does not have the best quality. You’re going to need a good mic so whoever is interviewing you can hear you clearly. You may want a job that involves having a good mic. Anything you can think of! Even though I won this mic, I am still glad I won it and want to share with you how awesome it is.
You do not need expensive things to have good quality. It’s all about learning the fundementals.
I have a video version for you all.
