Question Microphones in Webcams...how get the most out of them

I have purchased two webcams now that include mics. The first one produced a garbled, muffled sound...I'm pretty sure that webcam wasn't very good. The second just records at a very low volume.

I have made all the adjustments I can find described anywhere. I'd like to be able to do some real recording, both of my singing and my speaking. Is the problem that I need to find we cams with better mics? If so, which ones are they? Would using some sort of audio interface help? If so, which one?

I'm on a pretty small fixed income, so I can't spend a lot. Any advice you can give me will be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance!

The only ones I can think of with decent mics are expensive due to COVID, Logitech and Microsoft models. Recording singing through a webcam is a bad idea anyway, I wold just get a regular microphone, what type depends on how exactly you will be recording for position of the mic. The Blue Snowball is a good buy at $50 https://www.target.com/p/snowball-black-ice-usb-microphone/-/A-52533133?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df_free_online&CPNG=Video+Games&adgroup=207-28 maybe some random generic mics will do also but quality control and audio quality may not be worth the savings

Thank you! I had hoped perhaps others might have recommendations. I do have a professional-quality stand-alone mic, and am using it even for my Zoom meetings, since my webcam mic is so bad.
