Thanks that make sense, I will record something in the evening as soon as I come back from work.
As to my USB it is a new company just starting that’s why I didn’t bother to write a model but company is called klimtechs and the mic Klim Voice, u can find it or Amazon.
I spoke to them and they said while the mic does not have any noise reduction built in it shouldn’t produce such noise so they sent me a replacement but it’s exactly the same, that’s why I ended up here
I can force the test clip to pass technical quality standards, but it would never pass voice quality. Every time you take a breath or pause it sounds like a bad cellphone—talking into a milk jug.
You said it doesn’t have noise processing. The information says it does.
Uses a patented audio filter to cancel out the outside noises,
It also says it has a volume control but doesn’t say exactly how to use it. I assume it’s in the instructions. It doesn’t matter where the volume controls are set. It’s your job to put them wherever they need to be so your voice is loud enough on the Audacity sound meter. It’s not unusual for USB microphones to run all the way up.
The sound meters on Audacity 2.1.2 have two different displays. You want the gradient display for the recording meter. Right-Click or Control-Click the meter and select Gradient. That’s the one that starts turning yellow when your occasional peaks are just about right. They get orange and then red when you’re too high.
The spacing between your lips and the microphone should be approximately Hawaiian Shaka.
So if you’re trying to speak from across the room, that’s not going to work.
