ok, I want to start voice acting for a new animation im doing, but I have no idea what I use to record with.

I have no previous knowledge of voice acting, and I have no idea of what to use for voice acting...

Any recommendations for voice recording equipment? If possible, could you put a price range too?

yes, i microphone would help.

i recomend the samson C01U condenser microphone. best quality out there. however, it can get pretty pricey. if your low on cash, a lot of people use a logitech headset. its said to be cheap but "gets the job done".

as for recording software, use audacity. most people use this because it is great and free. and it is.

good luck.

Great cheap microphones:

Shure SM57
Shure SM58

They're each a hundred bucks. SM58s are used by TONS of people for live performance (pros included), and I know they're extremely sturdy as well. I don't actually have any experience with these mics I don't have a good mic), but I hear very good things from real people and from reviews on the web and other users talking about them.

I wanted to buy a microphone a long time ago, and I was looking at these guys. For the price, I doubt you can get anything better.

Sorry if that turned you off. I should have mentioned that people rave about them for recording too.

I'm just using the mic for animation, nothing big... XD

Does it matter if its just for animation?

maybe any headphones would work.

The headphone thing doesn't work, so I'm probably gonna buy those $30 headphones...

Unless there's something better?

Also I personally prefer to use a 57 for recording. Just 'cause it has no built in pop-shield. So it's all like, something.

They're basically the same thing, but the 58 has a built in pop filter, so if you don't want to get an external one, or you're going to be on stage, get a 58.
