Editor's Notes

November 01, 2018:

Selected two models from Gator Frameworks, including one that, while not made specifically for desktop recording, is nevertheless a practical option for those who want something bigger. Added several scissor arm and tripod models as well as a Blue Yeti bundle, since it is a well-liked microphone/stand combo that is useful for beginners.
