The static dilemma Empty The static dilemma

Post by Dia★ Sun Oct 17, 2010 3:39 pm

Yes, there are a million other threads like this one. I don't really have the time or computer speed to wade through a bunch of useless answers right now, so I'm making a new one.

Put simply, I have mic static. I do NOT want this mic static, for a few reasons.
1) It's unpleasant to hear
2) It ruins my vocals
3) It decimates my chance of getting into audition-for choruses.

Noise removal is an option, but it's an option I'm sick of. Noise removal just distorts my vocals even further, and sometimes doesn't even take all of the static out.

I'll probably need a new mic, right? Any suggestions? Other programs (I use Audacity) that can do the impossible and get rid of it?

Audition's noise removal is okay.
You'll have to play with it than use the defaults.
Also playing with the EQ helps.
Keep the right side middle/low

The best way to get rid of it: (Yes, you've guessed it) Buy a new mic! xDD

If you want to save time and effort, this is the best solution. After all, you don't wanna spend extra time on mixing just on fixing your mic static. It's just waaaay too bothersome. owo

Well, don't go for a headset mic. If goes all puffy when you make "s" "b" or "p" sounds really easily, so I wouldn't reccomend that. Webcam mics are also a nono because they tend to have a lot of bg noise.

Desktop mics would be better if you're on a budget. owo
But of course, if you have the moolah or if you can find a cheap one, try and get one of those pretty condenser mics those pro YouTube singers use <w<;;

...Logitech headsets are good if you take them off and use them like a standing mic. *shotdead*

For starters, Logitech in general is a good brand to buy (just don't get the webcam) and if you want to get a good condenser, look at the Blue Snowball and the Samson C01U or some similar model. Logitechs cost around $20USD and Snowballs and Samson cost around $100USD each. :O Also, try for a USB mic, because mics with jacks are more likely to create unnecessary noise.

Other things you could do:
- If you have a big enough closet, record inside it. If not, record with a pillow behind your mic. The cloth absorbs a lot of BG noise.
- Check to see if you have a built-in that's off. Most laptops have a built-in and when you plug your other mic in, it doubles the noise you get.

...I hope this help~ :D

Oh commenting again~

If you're buying a new mic, USB works better than audio jack.

I bought a headset a while back ago that was USB, and the sound quality was really good. But then it broke. So I bought a newer one that was jack-in, and it's the worst microphone ever (it creates its own fuzz..!~ Even if my room is dead silent.) =A=)b +

So I researched and found out USB > Jacks due to reason too high tech for my mini mind to comprehend~

Not necessarily true if you have an awesome sound card. In which case, I think the audio jack would be better cuz it goes directly into the sound. xD

This topis is super old, but hey guys~ posting here to ask 'cause this is a static-related question: what do I do if the mic is making the static? I'm not entirely sure how to explain this, but it's like... the microphone is literally producing static and even when not recording it sounds like headphones would if you were playing only static through them. Is this common??

That probably made no sense, I'm sorry....

Ah, and btw Dia-san, you're a really good dubber. So are you, Yanovi-san and Kran/Synth-san. Justfortherecord.

Same as what everyone else says: You probably need a new mic.

The one I have cost only £10 and it's good quality. No static, just a tiny bit of room echo but mainly because my room is...well...large and rather empty. It's an HQ-MIC20. Dunno if you can get them online but look for it. Cheap and good quality but you do need a mic stand. Just a bit of info.

@AMESHI-san Thanks~

I actually do have mic still, it's just... not as good quality as the now-static was before... I will definitely take your word on that though!! *starts Google producting*
