  1. There are certainly other options I would suggest before the 2500, perhaps take a look at the link in my signature, might be helpful, but as for the questions you did ask; 1, Volume is a function of the square of distance, as in, the closer to your mouth the mic is the less gain you need to use and therefore the less background noise you pick up, so yes, an arm is almost always a good idea. 2, Probably, I'd suggest doing some research into the two before buying if you're not sure.
  2. Dynamic mics are less sensitive so while it may still pick it up a little, it will be much less than a condenser mic would. I strongly suggest you try before you buy on this one, it's a lot of money to drop for a solution that may or may not be what you want. Just remember the two rules of getting rid of background noise: 1. Mic closer to your mouth. 2. Turn down the gain. Volume is a function of the square of distance, closer to your mouth the mic is the less gain you need and the less background noise you get, that's why my mic almost touches my mouth when I use
  3. There's always the Vmoda Boom Pro as well, now, I know a minimal amount about those two so can't give you advice based on any personal experience.
  4. I'd suggest you take a look at this video too, if you are certain you want to pay the premium for the 7B over the Stealth that's entirely up to you, I can only provide my own opinions and experiences from working with both mics in a studio setting where the Stealth beat the pants off just about any other dynamic mic. https://youtu.be/0J3wfPFTB98
  5. Link in my signature might be a good read for you
  6. UMC202HD is a decent interface with the Stealth since it's an active microphone so it doesn't need a load of gain, for the SM7B I'd suggest the same interface but with an inline preamp like the Klark Teknik CT1. Out of the two of go with the Stealth every time. There are always other options and Ahoy seems to have a decent amount of knowledge on cheap interfaces, he just has personal issues with Behringer and their sister companies so be warned that some of the best value products will be left out of their recommendations.
  7. I don't generally recommend budget mixers for a solution like that as they tend to have much lower quality components than dedicated interfaces (especially in the conversion sections), they also tend to have much higher noise floors. I can't think of a time I've wanted to mute my mic and didn't have access to a hotkey to do it, it's much easier for me to use n interface for the task it was designed for and just mute it with a mouse side button than to play around with multiple inputs on a mixer.
  8. Personally I detest the GO XLR just because it's an overpriced interface that comes bundled with some useful macros that you could reasonably easily set up yourself. I have similar thoughts about the SM7B, it's a great mic but there are much better mics for much cheaper, I'd strongly recommend taking a look at the Aston Stealth for starters, take a look at the link in my signature if you want more info on the specifics of your upgrade.
  9. I use a UMC1820 as my daily driver interface and almost always find myself recommending the UMC202HD on here, previously have owned and/or used large format mixers like the Mackie onyx 32.4, Midas Venice 320 and Behringer x32. If you're looking for info on interfaces I'd strongly suggest taking a look at the link in my signature, with your setup I might be tempted to just use a Control2USB and be done with it.
  10. Yetis have never been high quality microphones, if you're certain you want a dynamic mic there are much better value options than the 7B. Personally I use a Behringer C2 and find that works just fine because of the highly directional polar pattern but dynamic mics will certainly reject a lot of background noise. If you want to upgrade and need some general info the link in my signature will be quite helpful. If you want to try and make that yeti work, get it closer to your mouth, turn the gain down and if that still has too much background noise try one of the open sour
  11. Those cables are notoriously terrible, likely it's broken, then again the mic isn't overly high quality either and could also be broken, if you have a friend with an interface, have them test the mic for you
  12. How are you using the mic? Through an interface or just the included 3.5mm cable ??
  13. 3U aren't available anywhere except eBay and by Emailing the owner directly. Not exactly easy to find. They're manufactured and warehoused in China and he mostly trades in USD but honestly GZ is a great guy to chat with. As for the C2s in stereo, well, there's always this video but I mean the fact that they literally come with a mic bar for recording in stereo is a pretty good hint
  14. Klevgrand Brusfri is my personal choice as far as VST options go but really, there are a tonne of RTX Voice alternatives available on GitHub, pick one
