How to Make Voice Sound Better

  • Make Voice Sound Better- Recording Volume – Basically what I start out with is, I usually make sure that my Microphone Recording Volume on 0.8. That is work for me well. But if you want to check which Recording Volume is perfect for you then Click on Recording Level and say something through your mic. If the graph fixed on -3 then turn the recording volume down but if the graph is under -3 level then keep this Recording Volume. Just make sure that the recording volume not too loud or not too quiet.

  • Make Voice Sound Better- Record Your Audio – After adjusting the Recording Volume you need to record your voice. But whenever you record you have to leave at least 5 seconds of just nothing. Mean hit the record button and wait for 5 seconds and then start taking. Within the 5seconds your mic will catch all the background noise you have in your surrounding. Letter on we can remove the noise from your actual voice.

  • Make Voice Sound Better- Amplify – So after recorded your voice firstly you need to amplify your voice. To amplify merely click on Effects and then Amplify. Now in the New Peak Amplitude value put -4 and hit ok. It will amplify your sound by 10 dB.
