Top Tips for Recording Voice Audio 

So, you’ve installed the Voicemod desktop app, you understand how to record audio on your device, and you’re eager to start recording. But, before you get started, take some time to look over the following tips to make sure you get the best quality recording possible: 


  1. Control Your Microphone Distance
    If you’re speaking loudly, keep your microphone at a further distance. For quieter parts, bring it closer to keep your voice at a consistent volume.
  2. Manage Pops
    Microphones are sensitive to the “pops” our mouths make when pronouncing Ps and Bs. Manage these volume bursts by adjusting your distance and angle to decrease their intensity.
  3. Avoid Breathing into the Mic
    Breaths sound extra clear when picked up by a microphone. Try turning away each time you take a breath to avoid distracting from your voice.
