  • USB Microphone?

    i'm trying to find a usb microphone so i haven't gotta rip my car apart to start using a normal mic to do hands free

    any ideas?

    can't be too expensive (or too big)

    Check out the logitech USB microphone. My grandparents recently got one and it sounds great.

        you reckon it would be easy to tear apart and mount in the car somewhere?

        obviously its a little big for in car use as it is

          Well, you would need to hide the base of it somewere (the analog -> digital converter sits there). Otherwise the microphone element is small. Just extend wires to it and you should be done.

            ok, thats cool, i can put the base behind my dash where all the cables and my usb hub is.

            however i'm investigating a cheaper alternative. apparently the 3.5mm to usb converter for the playsation singstar games works and i'm bidding on ebay for one at about £5

                    i have bought a PS2 Singstar mic to usb adapter

                    and when you plug it in it recognises it as a usb audio device, next step is to plug in a normal mic and see what happens

                        Greenbeast i just tried what you were thinking about the usb mic for the singstar and the logitech mic for ddr max will work with a pc. i can post a screen shot the problem you are running into is that the singstar usb converter plug is mono and it is slim where the tip is. Its made like that on purpose by sony. uhm a typical stereo plug is fatter where as the sony mics for singstar are a standard size plug but the encasing or plastic on the wire is real slim and rounded so as to fit more in the plug socket than a conventional plug. So when i plug the singstar mics in i do in fact have a signal on the pc. there plastic housing is very slim

                          This is another way i did it take the usb converter apart and plug ya mic in. 3 screws to the outer casing underside. 2 screws under the rubber and 1 screw underneath the sticker. 4 screws holding the circuit board in. it works for me that way. because then the plastic circles on the outside of the interface do not interfere with the diameter of the plastic housing on a standard mic plug.Selling trick by sony to get us to buy there mic. I know that it works. I opened up speech and was training my pc for 5 minutes just to test it out. It should have create a volume control that says wave in.
