Voice Recording Mike Issue. May. 31st, 2012 @ 08:26 PM Reply

I just received an 80 dollar mike that I am using for voice acting, and I'm using garage band to record my voices.

However, with all recordings, even in complete silence, there's a slight feedback in the background, like a perpetual *tsshhhhhhhhhh* whenever I record.

I don't know what's causing this, and as far as equipment goes I'm a noob.

Do you think anyone could help me fix this problem?

Could be the connection if it's a USB mic. You can get a grounder or many audio programs have a noise cancellation effect. I don't use Garageband but I know almost all the others come with one, and if that's the case you should be able to Google a free one.

Try "dxi noise cancellation plugin" or "vst noise cancellation plugin" on Google.


no, really...DON'T CLICK THE PIC

If you're plugging straight into your computer's onboard sound then that would probably add to the noise - if your microphone is near the computer or if you have vents or a fan in the room that will also add noise. In the end there will always be the slightest hint of natural "room noise" which can be removed with the methods that Travis linked to.


p.s. i am gay

If you were to use Fruity Loops, I think Edison has a much better noise remover than Audacity. Less warbling and more quiet, haha!


My sig is clickable and takes you some place.
