I have a perfectly good studio condenser mic for vocals that I'm very happy with. But that's all wired in to my main production computer, and I'm lazy and don't feel like moving it around.
So I'm thinking of getting a second mic to mainly use to record vocals on my iOS device, now that Logic and Garageband for iOS sync pretty painlessly (so I can record vocals elsewhere in the house when my wife is in our shared "office," or when traveling). And I'm kind of tempted to go with a dynamic handheld, both for variety and so I can, you know, prance around and live out my child-like rock-star fantasies.
I know condensers are generally "better" for vocals where one doesn't need the flexibility of a handheld dynamic (generally a live setting), and the sales guy at Sweetwater thought I was nuts when I raised this with him (and he suggested a IK iRig Mic Studio iOS compatible condenser instead). Which is probably good advice.
But I guess my question is: has anyone here had success using a dynamic mic for recorded / studio vocals?
(Also, I'm aware there are handheld condensers, but the Sweetwater guy also felt strongly that they, like dynamic handhelds, are pre-EQd for stage use and not really suitable for studio recording. Of course, my voice could maybe use all the pre-EQ it can get. )
