I'm trying to record this song for my girlfriend. Usually I would have used the microphone on a broken headset my brother had, but he threw it away.
I have to have this all recorded before her birthday on the 30th. Purely instrumental, I can't sing for crap.
my laptop is an Asus K50Ij, from Best Buy. Asus support is particular on that
So when I'm recording, I don't have a problem with the microphone being weak, because I can turn on Mic boost, or turn the Amp up. I have a major problem with the placement OF the microphone. Asus put it in the middle, under the monitor, maybe one inch away from and above the exhaust fan.
So when I listen to a recording, you clearly hear the noise the fan makes, but more obnoxious. I know in Acoustica Mixcraft there's a noise reduction option, but I don't have a license for Mixcraft, so I can record all I want, but I can't save it as an Mp3 or other format audio that can be used outside of Mixcraft. I also don't want to have to use studio tricks like the noise reduction because I personally don't like it.
I might just be overly picky, but any help would be nice.
