Vocal recordings should be made in a well-insulated, quiet room. Since not everyone has a professional recording studio, it may help to drape walls or doors of a small room with blankets to avoid echos. Ensuring that the singer is close to the microphone also helps to prevent unnecessary echos in the recording. For vocal recordings a pop filter should always be used, which filters out pop and hissing noises. Most microphones and pop filters are available as a set and the equipment for your own audio recording is - as long as the quality from a professional sound engineer in a recording studio isn't expected - relatively low cost. When connecting the microphone to the PC, it is recommended that a preamp with an integrated mixer is used. This makes sure that the audio signal received by the musik program is of good quality, making it easier to edit the audio recording.
