Steady environment

The more you control the recording environment the better-quality audio you can record.  One key is to develop a consistent routine for recording.  It never fails that you’ll have to do retakes at a different time.  By maintaining a consistent environment and procedures you’re better able to match the audio quality.
  • Try to use the same room and maintain the same settings on your computer and the microphone set up.
  • If you’re using a desktop microphone, use a mic stand and measure the recording distance so that the next time you record you have the same setup.
  • Use a screen to help prevent the popping p’s that plague so many amateur recording sessions. You can even make your own in no time and at little cost.

Get rid of the surrounding noise

  • Unplug office machines. Turn off fans and air conditioners.
  • Place your microphone away from your computer. You might not realize it, but your computer makes a lot of fan noise (not cheers as in celebration of you, but the actual fan that keeps the PC cooled).
  • Tell everyone around you to be quiet. Put signs on the door.  Hire an airplane with one of those banners to fly by your office telling people to keep it down.

Cubicle walls that suck the noise

In a recording studio, the walls are designed to absorb the sound waves.  You can do something similar.  In addition to sucking the life from your bones, cubicle walls are designed to absorb sound.  In fact, I’m generally pleased with my audio recordings and I just record it in my home office which has a small cubicle set up. We once converted a storage closet into a makeshift recording room.  We placed rails on the walls and hung some blankets from them.  This also came in handy in case we were stuck in the building overnight. I also know some people that built a portable studio using a PVC pip frame and curtains.  They could quickly assemble the frame and then hung the curtains to it using shower curtain rings.
