I got money for 'professional' recordings I did with an elcheapo
Realistic Highball microphone. I won't encourage people to buy this
microphone for professional usage. It's possible to do professional
recordings using this cheap low quality microphone, but the field to do
this is very, very limited. 'Professional' in this context does mean
that a product can be used for averaged professional studio work.
Semantics has to do with the situational context and btw. my English is
very broken. My native language is German.
