Do you want to improve your microphone audio recording quality for voice overs, commentary, or streaming? This how to improves all recorded audio for film, YouTube, Twitch recordings, OBS screen captures, or voice overs. A good mic isn’t enough, you have to use post processing on your voice recordings to get the best quality. Audacity is a great, free program that not only records high quality microphone audio, but it can also edit and post process your audio and make your voice sound much better.
This beginner tutorial shows how to record in Audacity and what effects you should apply to every recording to significantly improve microphone audio / sound quality and remove unwanted noise. I focus on noise removal, compression, equalize, and normalize effects. Audacity is a great software tool for anyone on YouTube or Twitch especially long form content like gaming or podcasts. You can also use audacity for non-voice files or any recordings to improve them and clean them up.
With OBS, sound quality is best if you record audio with audacity. Alternatively, you can rip your OBS recordings and edit the audio in Audacity in post afterwards. I use Audacity to record and improve the audio for all my Youtube videos. It makes a big difference and really improves my audio quality.
