Setting up a Mic and location for recording
Here for your interest, we have selected a list of The Best Microphones in 2022 with a short description of each. Have your microphone ready, plug it into a laptop/PC input or soundcard input.
- Open an Amped Studio project where you want to place recorded audio or create a New Project;
- Add a New Track (recorded audio waveform will be visible on this track);
- Turn on a Mic icon on the selected Track panel;
- Start record when ready. Click REC Button on the main panel.
Before start is essential to check the location where you are going to make a record and whether it fits in terms of acoustic. Choice of location and environment for recording may depend on your creative idea and other requirements to the recorded audio. Of course, the best results can be achieved in the professionally arranged studio, but with several tips and little preparation possible to create a good location at home as well.
Choose a room with fewer corners, less hard surfaces, and more soft furnishing in it. In theory bedroom or living room should fit, and avoid much windowed spaces. If the floor and the walls are covered with carpets or curtains it will also have a positive sound absorption effect, if there is no any can use pillows or matrasses. The main idea is to avoid an undesirable reverb, reflections, or room resonances on recorded audio: in cases with vocals over reverb places it backward in the mix, pitch corrections are less effective for vocals with reverb, and can cause blending issues. But still, keep your ear on balance. A too-dead room can bring an unnatural sound as highs will be absorbed too much.
Placing a Mic far as possible from the walls but not in the center of the room. The ideal distance from the center of the room is +-1/3 of the radius of the room in the direction to any wall.
