How to overcome static noise from recording vocals
So I'm still working on volume one and have been recently working on trying to record things, however have faced a few speed bumps.
Most importantly, I have a strong static sound from my vocal recordings. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? It is definitely the vocals as the instrumental recordings by itself doesn't have anything
My current gear:
1. Mic - Shure SM57
2. Audio Interface - M-audio Fast Track (https://www.google.com.au/search?q=m-audio+fast+track&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiforG877rWAhXIXLwKHbR9D9gQ_AUICigB&biw=1600&bih=769#imgrc=0lponUlp5oYUKM
3. DAW - Audacity.
Signal chain - Shure SM57 --> Fast Track --> Audacity.
I've cover Moon River and uploaded it here
Does anyone have any ideas how to have a cleaner vocal recording? Also how can I smoothen the mix to make it sound more professional.
P.S. You will need to turn up the volume on this!
