    I am recording voice using SoundForge. What would be the recommended mic to use with optimal quality and lowest price?

    The Shure SM58 or SM57 are supposed to be good mics, not just for vocals but for recording guitars or anything else that takes your fancy. They are a bit pricey but good value for money. I have a copy of the Shure, made by a company called Proel, which was about half price (50 pounds sterling) and have had no complaints with it so far.

    Shure have just released an economy range which have the suffix PG. I haven't heard them but they are considerably cheaper, but I would tend to trust them more than Proel.?

    Optimal quality and lowest price..
    That acutally depends on your price range.
    I've got a Behringer B2 Conderser microphone and it's got really good quality and i don't think that the price was high (arround € 250)
    So it all depends on how much you can spend.
    But at a low price, a Shure SM58 would do good too.
