This is the Shure SM58. It has a really big name, and is very well known in the industry. Except the only problem that I have with the SM58 is that it does not work very well with M-Audio’s Fast Track Pro. You plug it in and literally have to crank the volume knob full, then the tiniest bit back in order for it to pick up a signal.
However, there is a way around this problem, when you record your vocal or what ever you recorded into Fruity Loops, you just hit normalize and it will show up even though its not recognizing a signal on the Fast Track Pro. It just makes it very hard to know how loud your voice is going to be. So I would recommend a different mic with the Fast Track Pro. So I cannot really experience the full capability that the Shure SM58 is known for. But you will need an XLR cable for this microphone. (See Picture Below).
For my microphone at the moment I use my digital sound recorder, called the Zoom H4N Handy Recorder. Meant originally for recording sounds/lectures, since my Shure SM58 doesn’t work, this is a perfect alternative for me. At the same time you are able to record your own sounds for your songs. I do have many of my own sounds that I use very often, this makes your song the most original it can possibly be.
I am not able to rate this microphone cause I am not able to see what it’s fully capable of. The Shure SM58 does not work well with the Fast Track Pro leaving you having to crank you volume dial to hear your voice. So do not buy a Shure SM58 to use with a Fast Track Pro.
