Top 3 Tips for Streaming: Best Microphone in Singapore and More

In the world of online content creation, streaming has become a popular way to share ideas, connect with audiences, and build communities. However, in order to create a successful and engaging stream, it is important to consider a range of factors beyond just the content itself. Audio and visual quality, for example, are essential components of any successful stream. Learn which microphone to choose for different spaces in this quick tutorial video.

Top 3 Tips for Streaming

1. Connection

The first tip is to consider how you are going to connect your microphone to your rig? Are you going to be using an XLR connection or USB? Whether it is XLR or USB connection, they each have their own benefits. For example, an XLR connection will require an interface where you can configure the audio directly on the interface. USB microphones often come with a built-in software package where you can use to configure audio.   

XLR connections are often preferred by professionals due to their reliability and versatility. They provide balanced audio transmission, which means that they can deliver clear and noise-free audio over longer cable runs. XLR connections also allow for more precise control over the microphone's gain and other settings, as you can adjust them directly on the interface. 

On the other hand, USB microphones are a more convenient option for those who are just starting out or who need a simpler setup. They often come with a built-in software package that you can use to configure audio, making it easier to get started right away. USB microphones also don't require an external interface or mixer, saving you money and space.

To get the best of both worlds, you can consider the Shure MV7 Podcast microphone that comes with both USB and XLR connections. It now comes with various bundle options that come with everything from boom arm to mic stand!

2. Type of Microphones: Condenser or Dynamic Mic

When selecting a microphone for streaming, it's important to consider the type of microphone that will best suit your needs. Both condenser and dynamic microphones are great options for streaming, depending on where you are going to be doing your stream!

Condenser microphones are commonly found in recording studios because they are designed to pick up more details and sound. They require phantom power which sends an electric charge into the mic to activate all of the circuitry inside and they generally come across as more sensitive. Dynamic microphones, on the other hand, are often used in live performances. They do not require phantom power and are less sensitive.

Many streamers find that dynamic microphones, such as the Shure MV7 Podcast microphone, are ideal for their needs. These types of microphones are especially useful in home or office settings where the acoustics may not be perfect since many do not have the luxury of acoustically treated walls. The MV7 mic is also designed with this in mind and offers features such as a built-in headphone output, so you can monitor your audio in real-time, and a touch panel for easy adjustments.
