I would like to improve the sound quality of my daughter’s Zoom lessons and record her harp for auditions and youTube. It would also be nice if we could amplify her harp for solo harp performances at church.
She as access to an iPad Pro (with a USB-C connection), an iPhone and a Mac laptop to do her lessons and record with.
My budget is around $300-$500, and I have access to a free mic arm and maybe a preamp. If I can’t get a preamp now, I would be willing to add one in a few months.
I have watched Anne Crosby Gaudet’s YouTube video “Harp recording at home (microphone comparison). This is so helpful, but I feel that I might have a few more options with a little bit bigger budget.
I have looked at Audio-Technica AT2020USB+, a Rode NT-USB, Shure MV88+ and a Blue Yeti Pro (because it has an option for a XLR set up).
Any advice or suggestions?
