I used a directional condenser microphone in my previous post. It was plugged directly into a USB Griffin iMic. I used QT Pro 7 to record. The results are icky and I don't know how to nicely even it out. I think I'll have to record sound via my mini DV cam then just import into iMovie 4. My camera has an automatic sound compensation I guess, I know I don't have to mess around with sound settings.
