Your smartphone has a great high res high res microphone. It comes with recording software. And that’s it. Right now. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S 10. It has a recording for audio not this particular one that you’re watching on the camera, but it has an audio podcast, I’m sorry, the audio recording software and just start podcasting right into your phone. It’s the sound quality is great. Okay, there’s nothing about like, you know, you can just have that little nasally sound.

Okay, the Microsoft smart phone comes with it. Okay, iPhone comes with it. They all do. You already have the microphone, you don’t need to spend $125 like this one. But it is better. If you do have a microphone like this, I will tell you, when you get the bass, you get a lot of cool little audio tricks that you won’t get with the phone.
