There are SO many variations of microphones & gear, but these are some starter items that I recommend.
Phase 1 : Beginner
Start small with a simple USB microphone that plugs right into your computer. Be sure to have headphones that go over-the-ear and don't have a microphone built in. This is a great setup for learning, creating ideas, and recording auditions.
Phase 2 : Intermediate
The next level of microphones need to plug into an Audio Interface in order to get a signal to your computer. This level will be expected by clients if you are recording actual voice work from home.
