Can you record vocals with USB mic?
Yes. A USB mic becomes the recording interface to your computer. It replaces any other inbuilt microphone or recording system and gives you a good, clean recorded sound. While many are designed for speech there are plenty, as listed here, that will operate brilliantly over the dynamic range of the singing voice.
When compared to studio microphones than we generally find that USB mics are aimed at the lower end of the market and can give great results but you will find better quality in the studio microphone market.
Are USB mics good for recording music?
Yes, particularly in simple settings where you are recording a single vocal or instrument. They are designed for ease of use and simplicity so once things get complicated with more instruments or larger setups then a more regular mic would be more appropriate. But, if it’s just you then a USB mic is the simplest way to start recording.
However, there’s no place to plug in a guitar, or your synthesizer, or what about if you wanted to record a few voices or instruments at once? For a larger or more complex setup, you need an audio interface and regular microphones but for direct recording or performance you can’t beat a USB microphone.
