Hey guys, First of all thanks for reading.
I have been trying to get into recording music at this point. Thankfully a friend of mine let me borrow an old Blue Snowball Mic that he didn't use anymore. It is a start for a decent sound, however, it is just not quite there on the sound quality. I do a little bit of buzzing when playing guitar or an ukulele, not enough that it is devastating to the song, but enough that it is painfully noticeable. Vocals work fine however.
Looking around, I have found people that have used the mic to near perfection, so I have come to the conclusion that I am just not using it right.
So for those that have or have worked with this mic, what are your recommended settings, and other preferences such as distance from the instrument etc.
I also am using audacity for my recording. I have Kristal downloaded as well, but the sound quality is significantly worse.
Thanks in advance.
Yes I have that mic sitting right behind me.
The problem with using this USB microphone is you need to adjust the "mic-pre" lol. THERE ISN'T REALLY ONE...Oh wait....yeah there is.
Go into Volume Control in windows.t
adjust volume for [X] Recording.
Show the following volume controls for BLUE Snowball.
Adjust the volume so when you can see the recorded signal in Audacity it is not getting distorted.
REALLY ANNOYING MICROPHONE
The only complaints I have heard about that microphone is that it is very odd to speak into, and therefore can create some strange feedback if your not doing it correctly.
bad mic for a sax/cornet recordings.... get something else if you plan to record these instruments.. also resting them on your chin would also help...
