Thanks mate, really appreciate it. Really!Recording music you probably don't want a USB microphone at all.
The short answer is a Blue Yeti is probably more than good enough for all but the most fussy audiophiles.
The AT+ is slightly better but IMO not worth the extra investment.
If you wanted to a level higher, realistically you absolutely want an XLR microphone rather than a USB one which takes you to something like a Blue Yeti Pro and then you need an XLR interface https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Focusrite-Scarlett-Solo-2nd-Gen-USB-Audio-Interface-NEW-DJ-City/162142217346?epid=1178255136&hash=item25c06de482:g:lLkAAOSw6n5XqRhO:rk:1:pf:0 which something like that is really good without spending a ton.
The way I see it, for 99% of people, spending about $150 on a Blue Yeti is more than enough and you'd be thrilled with the results. To get a real step above that recording live music, you want what I listed above, but even then you'll probably only hear the difference on a really good sound system. Listening from average speakers, you likely can't discern the detail difference.
Blue Yeti it is ;)
To my soul’s pain, she isn’t recording music atm. It’s what made me fall in love with her, but there’s a billion other reasons since.
She just wants to sound professional recording (through Camtasia) video tutorials.
I can see a viable business for me via the same path, but through design (I know, saturated), but I have an insider‘s knowledge for those don’t want to go to uni, yet want to compete with graduates.
