DELAY ECHO REVERB

Post by pennyroyaltea94 » Fri Oct 06, 2017 4:32 am

So they say when you apply things such as

DELAY ECHO CHORUS REVERB on VOCAL Tracks

that helps further remove HUM BUZZ after NOISE REDUCTION ,

How is that possible ?

Did you try it?

It's not.

Do you know where your noise is coming from? There are some noises like the Yeti Curse that take a custom filter and not Effect > Noise Reduction.

This is the noise write-up hanging from the bottom of the AudioBook Mastering paper. Those are the main sources of noise—and they're not all fixable.

If there is hum / buzz on the recording and you apply reverb, that gives you hum / buzz with reverb.

Post a sample of the work without processing. Is this a voice performance? If it is, announce a 20 second sample and post it here on the forum. Freeze and hold your breath for that two seconds. The rest can be anything. Read the side of the cereal box, but do it in your normal announcing style.

OK , Actually I think was half dead asleep while posting this 1 :lol:

I can pretty much live with the slight buzz sometimes heard but

I been doing my research and it seems like their is plenty of steps I NEVER been doing which is why I prob. hate my recorded voice.

I use a AKG Dynamic Live , so this way it's just my voice the mic records.

Now I always been leaving it AS IS , Now I am reading apparently ,

Their should be steps taken such as DYNAMIC COMPRESSION added and along with things such as REVERB ,

So in what order should I apply things to my RAW Voice ? Things that obivously perhaps make the raw track sounds more like my TRUE SELF ?

Most people hate their recorded voice. So unless you've been recording yourself for a long time, what you hear maybe normal.

What are you doing? Recording for an AudioBook? Singing? Theatrical Overdubbing? Give us a push. Some of the jobs have different filters and tools.
AKG Dynamic Live
That's not a real microphone. Do you have a model number? If it's a dynamic (moving coil) microphone, how are you getting it into your computer?

Very true normally everyone hates their voice which is one fact about myself . It's music recordings.

It's MALE XRL into a FEMALE OUTPUT that ends like a Guitar Plug So it goes into my INTERFACE.

According to this article , their 8 Steps supposely I should do , I never do any of them LOL.

Oddly, we don't only care about the quality. Each different type of microphone can have connection problems and that may be where your noise is coming from.
So it goes into my INTERFACE.
Which is.....?

Is this the same cable that you plug into the Mic-In of your amp? Two black rings or one?

This is the place you can pick up buzz and hum. This microphone is a three wire system (three silver or gold pins on the bottom). The other systems are all two wire and how you get between them can cause serious hum.

Is this a louder version of what you have?

I'm not just making all this up. If you have a connection problem, it can change your voice quality. Get the microphone working and then dig into the filters, corrections and effects.

OK , My AKG is using theses

The MALE XRL is from Musician's Friends ,

and then that FEMALE End was a cheap china one.

Which I had to RESOLDER the wires , It worked great afterwards and now it's back to crap ,

So I think my real issue is

time to BUY a real FEMALE END PLUG ,

Perhaps male too. As I think me pulling out is what ruined the inside wires.
