Record vocals, instruments, and capture other acoustic audio for your personal audio and video projects.

What does the Creative Studio provide?

We provide microphones to capture vocals, instruments, and audio for video projects. Each microphone may work best for specific projects, for example, the Rode NT-USB microphone may work best for voice-over work and Podcasting. The SM-58 Shure Microphone is best for singing and capturing vocals. The SM-57 Shure microphone is best capturing sounds from instruments. The Rode VideoMic Go microphone is an attachment to a DSLR camera or camcorder and may work best for capturing audio for video.

We also provide other necessary equipment such as XLR cables, microphone stands, and pop filters.
