Mac Microphone

Recording with the Mac microphone results in my voice being “tinny”. Can I adjust settings on the Mac or on Audacity software to improve it or do I need to buy a microphone, and if so, which one/type?

Hi there,

What is the version of the audacity application you are currently running? (To know the version of the application, with it open, go to menu option named Audacity > Audacity version… > (Tab) Audacity.)

The latest version should be 2.3.3.
When you say “tinny” what do you mean by that?

If you are in a quiet place the quality of the recording should be ok. Do you know how to edit your voice once you recorded it in the application? Maybe this can help you.

Thank you,

By Tinny I mean all treble and echoe-y. It sounds like I’m speaking from inside a trash can.
I use 2.3.3 version of Audacity.
A colleague gave me some tips; laying down a copy on top of original recording to boost volume, create a noise reduction setting, reverb setting adjustments.
These have helped but only slightly,
In the meantime, I have ordered a Blue Snowball microphone so hope that makes a big difference.
