What Mic Do I Need for Voiceover Work?

Episode 1709 (1:07:10)

Joe from San Clemente, CA
SHURE

Joe's son wants to get into voiceover. He's been doing video editing in school but wants to move over to voice work. What microphone and mixer should he get? Leo says that a mixer may not be necessary. Start with a USB Microphone and go into the computer directly. However, Behringer has a podcast setup that has a mixer and mic for a very low cost. What about the Blue Yeti? Leo isn't a fan for that purpose. He recommends a SHURE SM58. Also, get a Focusrite Scarlet. Those two will give a great sound.
