Microphone for PC to use with DaVinci

Hello everyone!

I am interested in buying a microphone that plugs into my desktop-pc. I would like to use it for voice-overs (definitely not for music-vocals as I cannot sing) :)

What would you recommend?

Which type? USB or not?
Which brand?

Thank you.

Links are welcome!

Peace!

Do you have any 3rd party audio I/O device or are you only using system audio?

I use a Boya BY-PM700 USB microphone which was reasonably priced and does the job well enough. There are literally hundreds of different USB microphones on the market that would do the job, seek out some reviews and listen to some of them on YouTube videos (reviews) for an idea of what you'd be getting.

If you're going to do voice-overs then a pop-filter is another useful addition.

Just plug it into your PC, fire up Resolve, patch the microphone to the desired track-input and you're good to go. Actually, on my system I have to exit Resolve and reload it before I can record a voiceover after making the patch for some reason. No idea why that is but once I've done that everything works as expected.

I'm partial to recording in hardware.

A Zoom H1n would get you started pretty cheap.
