Hey guys, i’m melideas and have some problems with my mic. I always try to make it sound better, clearer and more professional - sometimes that works, but sometimes not. I always mess around with the setting, because i’m not sure what settings are the best for quality.
Settings on the blue yeti itself:
cardoid or how its called (the butt-icon)
Volume is one quarter or less, not more
I speak in the side of the micro, not in the head or something.
In windows my volume setting from the mic is at 2-10 (change it sometimes) and on 48000 Hz.
I have not much background noise, just a few clicks and stuff, but later on i filter them out of my audioline.
You guys have some tips for me? Some help? I dont know where the perfect “distance” for my head is and yeah…sometimes i’m really in front of it, sometimes 5cm away, sometimes 2,5cm - i cant tell a difference but sometimes when i record a long gameplay…there are 2 chances - i sound like a blurry something…yeah…it sounds like that the sound is… not fuzzy (you can hear what i’m say) but… dull discribe it right i guess.
I tried my best to get a CLEAR voice, but always something ruins it…but i just dont know what.
Here is what i do with the audioline: After i finished my audioline, i do 3 lines - 1 with NOTHING, just the mic recording itself. Then i filter that out of my audioline. THen i do the same with “mouseclicks” (i record them and filter them out) - same for tipping on my keyboard. After that i’m using the compressor (or how its called in ENG - i’m german and my eng is not so good), then bass boost with 6 and yeah…thats all. (its base boost in eng i guess)
That’s all i do…sometimes it sounds good…and another time like a pile of shit. I’m frustrated.
I hope someone can help me with that & i hope i gave you all the infos you could need.
