How do I record on MBP with bilt-in mic and avoid noise?

Asked by rafijn (13points) November 20th, 2008

I am recording my own voice for a kid sing along on my macbookpro. I am using Audacity with the built in mic. I get a terrible amount of noise, just crunching aluminum foil, crackling and popping. I have researched a lot of blogs and google etc. and I know I must be doing something obviously wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction? (I am of the mindset, hear hoofbeats – think horses not zebras.) Thanks, RN

That was a bit of a confusing description. But I’d recommend using Garageband. There’s alot of really powerful (and simple) plug-ins and tools included with it.

The most important for you would be the Speech Enhancer noise reduction. You can add it to a track (even while recording) from the info window.

Also make sure you’re singing/speak close to the mic to alleviate any other ambient input.
