If you can record better audio, then your song or music will sound better. Here are three essential tips on recording better audio.
1. Buy a good quality microphone
Buy a good microphone and you will be able to record better audio. It is not necessary that you have to buy an expensive microphone. You can get some high quality microphone in an affordable range also.
2. Maintain a consistent environment.
It would be nice if you had a recording studio where you could control all your sound. But it is not practically possible. So, you will have to do your best to control the recording environment. One way is to develop a consistent routine for recording. This way you will be able to match the audio quality in a better way. You should try to use the same room and keep the same settings on your computer and microphone set up. When using desktop microphone, use a mic stand and measure the recording distance. This way you can have the same set up next time.
3. Avoid having as much of the ambient noise as you can
You need complete silence for good audio recording. But this will never happen. All you can do is try to minimize the noise as much as possible. You should turn off air conditioners and fans, and place your microphone away from your computer. You should tell everyone in the room, and also outside the room, to be quiet. You can put signs on the door.
Recording is a very sensitive job. You need to make sure that you keep noise to a minimum level in order to record better audio.
