I was looking at the gear you recommend. Unfortunately, the Heil Sound is out of my price range currently. I was looking at the Audio Technica options. I am currently using a Blue Yeti microphone. Do you think the AT options would be an upgrade or am I better off with the one i have?
The Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB is a great microphone I recommend for starting podcasters. If you had no mic, I would always recommend the ATR2100-USB over any Blue mic. But if you already have a Blue Yeti, it's fine to stick with it. The Yeti and ATR2100-USB aren't very different in audio quality. Where they are vastly different is in features (XLR and USB on ATR2100-USB), portability, price, and warranty.
