Hi all, I'm trying to research something where I'm completely out of my depth and looking for some advice. My partner has started making videos for YouTube for no reason more than she loves doing it. She doesn't get a huge amount of views, but what she gets makes her happy, making the content makes her happy, I think she's a natural, and I want to support her.
Audio has been an issue (currently using a phone and a lapel mic) and she's looking into getting a new microphone. I'd like to get it for her and maybe pay more than she would.
Her videos compose of both her sitting at her computer talking, as well as her cooking, chopping, doing things in the kitchen, etc.
Short version - any recommendations on what mic she should go for at a good price that might meet her needs? Bonus points if it's one mic instead of many.
Longer version - We were last looking at the yeti x VS the yeti nano - presuming the 24 bit audio will be better for clarity. They also offer a couple of modes (in layman terms, one directional, omnidirectional, stereo and one other thing I forget). The X offers all those, whereas the nano does not. She can probably only afford the nano. I'd happily buy her the X if it's worth it. But really, with so much choice out there (including non yeti mics) I am very much a penguin in the desert.
Also, whatever I buy I will talk to her first. Nothing worst than buying her a gift she doesn't want. But even so, just knowing how to think through this purchase better I think would be a help to her.
