Cheap XLR setup?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to upgrade my current microphone setup. Right now, I am using the microphone of a Steelseries Arctis 7, and while not bad, I really want something better. I then saw this video by LTT 

 

I am intrigued by the XLR setup that they showcase in the video. It is just around my pricepoint, <$80, and sounded very nice. However, when I went to the amazon pages, it showed the behringer u-phoria um2 as costing nearly 70 dollars, which is more than double what they say in the video. So obviously the price has increased. What are some other options? I need the whole setup to be less than $80 if possible, very entry level.

ebay an old digi mbox or maudio fasttrack pro or anything presonus. don't spend more than $50 

Do I need drivers or something for these? I'm worried because I have heard that the behringer has issues with drivers.

Yes, but the driver infrastructure is rock solid on the above gear as it aimed at the professional line, behringer is mostly consumer crap, with a few pro sumer products. Just check anything you buy thats older has 64bit 8/10 drivers first.

So something like this would work well? https://www.ebay.com/itm/M-Audio-Fast-Track-USB-Computer-Recording-Interface-Pro-Tools-Essentials-2-Ins/114118168575?hash=item1a91f90fff%3Ag%3AuNgAAOSwEdteSaTM&LH_BO=1
