I have just recorded an audio file for translation of a foreign movie. I only used two hardware devices for recording which were an usb microphone and my laptop. The OS being used is the 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium.

 

The software used to record voice is Adobe Audition 3.0.

 

I want to make the quality of my audio file as good as possible. But I am not good at using effects provided in Adobe Audition.

 

Which fundamental steps should I do to get this as desired?

Here is a link about the Audition 3.0 Audio Hardware. The best thing you can do to make sure the quality of your audio is good relies on two items:

 

1. Decent/Good Sound Card

2. Good Microphone 

 

You can set your sample rates a bit higher but unless you have decent hardware that you are recording on it wont help much. If I could recommend a simple/cheap fix for either of these issues it would be these two devices:

 

1. Soundblaster X-FI 5.1 USB Sound Device - This external "Sound Card" will give your recording a bit of a boost from standard laptop plugins as it records at a better qualtiy. Check your laptop model and see what it records at. This one records at 24-bt/96kHz. If your laptop matches that or is better, than you don't need this device. (General Price is around $50.00)

2. CAD U37 Microphone - This microphone is a cheaper "Studio Quality" microphone and can usually be found online with kits that include Pop filters. (General Price is around $50.00)

 

If you could post what sound card you're are using/is built into your laptop and what microphone you are using.

The sound card being used is ATI High Definition Audio Device. The microphone being used is Alctron UM900 Professional USB Condenser Mic.

Temporarily, I am satisfied with the quality of the audio file I have got.

That hardware is more than enough for good audio quality.
