In addition to the microphone, you may also need to choose some equipment, such as a microphone stand, shock mount, pop filter, etc. If your song has a large number of "B" and "P" pronunciations, then the help of the blowout cover will be great, , It can help filter out these blasting sounds, and it will cost you a lot of time and energy to not deal with it later.
The most important thing is that you need a quiet room .There should be no loud noise on the street, no running sounds of computers, air conditioners, fans, etc., preferably in the bedroom or living room.
Vocal distance and positioning
After preparing these, we must install things. The position of the vocal microphone should avoid corners and surfaces that are easy to radiate, and should not be placed in the center of the room.
Do not place the microphone stand exactly in the center of the microphone, and slightly deviate it, aim the microphone at the singer's mouth, about 8-12inch (20-30cm) away, the blowout shield should be closer to the mouth, and slightly angled, do not Parallel to the microphone diaphragm.
But in the end you need to decide which distance is best for you. If in doubt, place two microphones at two distances and record at the same time to see which one works better. When you shift the angle of the microphone to your mouth, the vocal effect will become very different. You can experiment with the microphone placement.
● Close to the nose can reduce the sound of spray and teeth, but it will emphasize the nasal sound.
● Shifting downward will record a lower, less bright sound, because the microphone will sample more resonance from the throat and chest.
Finally, before the official recording, conduct a recording test to listen to different vocal effects.
